Variety 111

 Obverse 11: High Date, Slight Downward Slope, Open 9

Reverse K: Perfect Die

        

Obverse 11                                               Reverse K

 

Obverse Diagnostic Point(s)

        

        

Comments: Obverse 11 has an open 9 digit in the date. The entire date punch is weak in this working die. There is a small die defect in the shield by shield line 9.

Reverse K is perfect in this early die state.

Flat head strikes seem to be the rule for this variety.

Plate Coin: G. Fortin Collection, AU50
