Comments: An incremental 1853 Hubbed Arrows and Date variety was identified during 2013 and remained unpublished by the author until 2021 when located in a box of raw Seated dimes staged for die variety analysis. This nicely original AU specimen features multiple die cracks that are undocumented and now published as Variety 119.

The above die crack mapping showcases peripheral die cracks throughout the obverse and several unconnected vertical die cracks in the right wreath. There is an internal die cud in the right wreath immediately adjacent to DIM(E) that is nearly identical to Variety 105. Careful inspection is required to differentiate Variety 105 and 119.

Plate Coin: Gerry Fortin Collection, AU55
