Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)

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


Comments: The date and arrows on Obverse 6 are positioned similar to that of the hubbed dies, thus the important diagnosics are the repunching on the left arrow and the 1 digit. Repunching is easiest to detect above the left arrow point. Additional repunching is found below the base of the 1 digit. On high grade specimens, faint repunching can also be seen below the bottom loop of the 8 digit.

In early die states, Reverse F is found without any diagnostics. In a slightly later die state, shown on the plate coin, the reverse has a distinct die crack from the rim above STATE(S) that moves downward adjacent to STATE(S) and ends in the upper right wreath. Reverse F continues to degrade with additional die cracking ultimately leading to a retained cud in the lower right wreath to rim. See Varieties 106a and 106b.
