Obverse 9 Reverse K
Obverse Diagnostic Point(s) Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: On Obverse 9, the first 1 digit in the date has a broken right foot as is often on 1891 coinage due to a date punch defect.
The Small S mintmark is positioned left and high on Reverse K. There are two die defects on the denomination. First there is a defect in the mid section of the diagonal line of O(N)E. There is also a defect on the upper diagonal of DI(M)E near the left upright. See the description for Variety 113 as the Mint State example presents clear photographs of the reverse die defects.
