Obverse 4: Misplaced 8 In Denticles, High Date, Slight Downward Slope
Reverse D: Perfect Die
Obverse 4 Reverse D
Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: The top of an extra 8 digit is visible in the denticles directly below the normal 8 digit. This variety was first published by the author in Kevin Flynn's "Two Date Are Better Than One, A Collector's Guide to Misplaced Dates" as MPD-002.
Take care in attributing Obverses 4 and 11 as both have date punches that are positioned DR -1B0 and show a high date that slopes downward. On Obverse 4, the date is uniformally punched and is stronger than Obverse 11. Obverse 4 also exhibits a misplaced 8 digit in the denticles below the first 8 digit in the date.
