Variety 107b

 Obverse 6.2: Die Crack Through Date

Reverse E.3: Late Die State, Cracked Reverse


Obverse 6.2                                              Reverse E.3


Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)

Comments: In the latest die state seen, Reverse E is further degraded with bisecting reverse die cracks.

Locating examples of Variety 107 in this late die state will prove to be very challenging. I believe an R5 rarity rating is justified along with premium being warranted for original and problem free examples.
