Owner's Comments

Eagle Eye Photo Seal Snow 5 1 in denticles, Shallow N Reverse Obv. 8: (RH) The top of a 1 digit is visible sticking into the field below the left edge of the last 1 in the date. Horizontal die line below the right edge of the last 1. Rev T1-B: Shallow N reverse. Olive leaf and shield points away from denticles. Die striations from 10:00 to 4:00 most evident as numerous die lines extending from the olive leaves. Areas between wreath and shield are flat. Die crack from the rim at 3:30 to the wreath, continuing up the outer leaves of the wreath to 2:00. Attributed to: Tim Cartwright A second die pair of the Shallow N. This is paired with a nice misplaced digit obverse. Scarce and popular. This die pair is found usually well made. The Cartwright study listed 22 pieces tallied out of 2400. Many more have come to light since and it is available enough to consider this as a distinct type for the year. As a type, necessary for inclusion in a full Indian Cent collection it becomes the key date in the series.
