Owner's Comments

Mintage: Unknown

A single 1838 obverse die was clashed during its life resulting in the transfer of reverse wreath details to the area below Libertys right arm. This die clash was first attributed as partial drapery and the designation has remained popular with date and variety collectors.

Plate Coin: Fortin-108a, A Near-Gem That Boasts Copper-Gray and Light Green Patina.
