Obverse 2: Repunched First 1, Medium Level Date, Clashed Die
Reverse B.2: Die Cud Between 9:00 - 10:00, Clashed Die
Obverse 2 Reverse B
Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: In a later die state, Reverse B die suffers metal stress between 9:00 and 10:00 with this die section about to break apart. Scott Grieb first identified this die state to the author at the 2015 Central States Numismatics Society show.
Philadelphia 1891 dimes are rarely seen with partial or full cuds on the reverse. This is in stark contrast to New Orleans strikes which are a treasure trove waiting to be explored.
