Repunched Date, Gun Metal Gray Patina, Choice Original, Excellent Strike, Gerry Fortin Reference Collection. 1872 Philadelphia strikes are found with several repunched dates. The F-106 double date is most dramatic. Repunching is clearly seen within the 1, 8 and 2 digits. The original flag of the 1 digit is visible to the left of the upright of the final 1 punch. Repunching is present in the upper loop of the 8 digit and within the upper loop of the 2 digit. This offered example is the plate coin at The Definitive Resource for Liberty Seated Dime Variety Collectors commonly known as the Seated Dime web-book. Purchased way back in the early 1990 and recently graded during a conservative PCGS time frame. I've graded this piece as raw MS62 for years in the web-book as I don't see rub. Surfaces are toned a light gun metal gray. The toning does not impede the reflective luster. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder. December 1969
