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.
