With Arrows - Hubbed Date and Arrows

Variety 105

 Obverse 5: Die Crack Left Base, Down Through Left Arrow

Reverse E: Shattered Die


Obverse 5                                                Reverse E


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



Comments: Obverse 5 can be identified by a die crack from the left edge of the base that drops down through the left arrow. This is the only die crack on Obverse 5.

Reverse E is shattered with severe cracks at the top, left, and right sections of the die. The internal die crack on the right wreath appears comparable to that of Reverse B (Variety 102). However, close inspection reveals that Reverse B and Reverse E are two different dies, which have cracked in a similar location.
