Owner's Comments

Mintage: 1,053,115
Obverse Dies: 5 Known

The plate coin is the earliest die state seen for Obverse 1. The 3 and 9 digits in the date show repunching. The 3 digit shows repunching below the lower loop while the 9 digit shows repunching within the upper and lower loops. Stars 5 and 6 are repunched while Star 11 shows repunching outside its star point facing Liberty. Obverse 1 is paired with Reverse A, which shows considerable wear around UNITED and AMERICA. There is a faint die crack from the wreath to AME(R)ICA. Evidence of die erosion can also be seen behind O(NE). Reverse A is rotated left 18 degrees.

Plate Coin: Fortin-101, Repunched 39 Digits, Fully Struck Gem with Original Blue, Gold and Rose Toning Throughout
