With Arrows - Hubbed Date and Arrows
Obverse 11: Doubled Upper Loop of 3 Digit
Reverse K.2: Retained Cud at (UNIT)ED
Obverse 11 Reverse K.2
Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: Reverse K is in its final die state and has badly degraded. A portion of the reverse die has broken away between (UNIT)ED and the rim. A significant retained cud has formed in that location. There is also a die crack from the rim above the M in AMERICA that drops down through A(ME)RICA.
All 1853 With Arrows dimes with retained cuds are considered rare and should command a 2x to 3x premium above Coin World Values.
Plate Coin: G. Fortin Collection, PCGS VG8
