Reverse Q: Cracked Reverse


Obverse 19                                                Reverse Q


Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)


Comments: Obverse 19 can be attributed by a date punch with slight downward slope and Denticle Ruler measurement of DR 0B1. Look for faint die crack from STATE(S) to the head. That die crack pattern is unique among 1888 obverse dies.

Reverse Q exhibits a concentric ring of die cracks throughout the entire wreath and ribbon ends. The left side of the wreath has stronger die cracks than the right side of the wreath.

The plate coin also has wired rims on both obverse and reverse.
