Seated 10C 1842O Seated 10C 1842-O
Medium O
Choice $335 Shattered Reverse #3, Medium O, Interim Die State, Choice Original, Gerry Fortin Reference Collection. The 1842-O F-107 obverse die can be easily diagnosed via a die gouge at Liberty's left facing index finger. During a second reverse die pairing, the obverse is lapped resulting in weak obverse devices. As striking continue, the reverse develops a die crack at STATE(S) to rim. That die crack starts off as a round die blog (interim die state) and expands to a heavy die crack during later die states. The Fortin Reference Collection is selling off its last two F-107 examples. This interim die state VF30 specimen features choice original surfaces covered with olive-gold patina on the obverse and gun metal gray-blue on the reverse. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder with CAC approval.
