Variety 102

 Obverse 2: Repunched 1843/1843

Reverse B: Perfect Die, Partial Flash Around Bow Loops


Obverse 2                                                Reverse B


Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)                 Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)



Comments: All four date digits are strongly repunched downward on Obverse 2.

Reverse B is perfect at this point in time, but will soon show die cracks as it produces additional coinage. Partial flash is evident around the bow loops.

This repunched date variety is one of the more well known in the the Liberty Seated dime series due to be listed off and on in pricing guides. It was included in the Top 100 Varieties set due to popularity with collectors.

Plate Coin: G. Fortin Collection, AU55 - Greer Plate Coin
