20771864 Bronze1CMS65RB209251864 No L Snow-11 MS-65RB PCGS- CAC-75% RED. Fully struck with very few marks. This variety shows concentric lathe lines across the face. Although there is a spot on the reverse, it is still a very attractive coin. It is in an old green-label holder from over 15 years ago. S11 1864 No L, Lathe lines. Obv. 21: (C) Concentric circular die lines cover most of the portrait with the focus at the center of the die. Die stage A: Die striations fron 11:30 to 5:30. Dies stage B: The lathe lines are less pronounced. Rev. AT: Olive leaf and shield points well away from the denticles. This could have been an old die which was reengraved for some reason. It may have been expedient to reengrave the design directly into this working die to bring out the design. Any lines cut into the die would be very difficult to smooth out, so they were left in.

374391865 Plain 51CMS64RB40Eagle Eye Photo Seal 40% RED. Fully struck with very few marks. This is a very bold and popular repunched date. The is actually an 8 between the 8 & 6!
3745018661CMS64BN10Rick Snow Wrote:Full strike with very few marks. Minor repunched date. About 30% RED on the reverse.

Attributed to: Larry Steve A scarce but rather minor variety. This variety is not listed as a large 7 over small 7 because the first digit punched was deformed by the second, bolder punching {64RD, 62RB, 55, 55}
3746918681CMS64RB20S5 Doubled die obverse, 2-O-V, 1868, 8/8 (n), Digit in denticles. Obv. 7: (RE) Doubling most visible on the BERTY of LIBERTY. Minor repunched date visible in the top loop of the 8.

Die crack from arrow tips through wreath at 7:00. Die stage C: Retained die cud along rim from 2:30 to 5:00. This is a very interesting variety in that it has three types of varieties on one die. It seems to be quite scarce, but this may be because all the die anomalies are minor
40801718701CMS63BN21Eagle Eye Photo Seal Plate Coin for Die Rotation in Rick Snows attribution Guide Edition 3 2014 Pick-Axe variety. Shallow N reverse. The reverse is rotated 45 deg as shown. The coin is much nicer than the grade implies - maybe they downgraded it because of the Pick-Axe! Rick Snow

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.
40454718721CMS64RB53Eagle Eye Photo Seal 1872 Shallow N PCGS MS 64RB 25% RED. Fully struck with very few marks. The planchet has uneven alloys so there are brighter areas (more alloy). Ex: Larry Steve collection.

375041873 Doubled LIBERTY1CVG8BN2141873 Doubled Die Obverse Indian Head Cent graded VG-08 by PCGS. LIBERTY is too worn for 1873 Double LIBERTY an identification so other die identifiers were used to positively identify this variety.

Scuff marks in the photo are on the plastic holder. 1873 Double LIBERTY

Also visible in front of the forehead, eye and ribbon. Die crack from the rim at 7:00 to the base of all the digits in the date. Rev. T3-R: Olive leaf and right shield point connected to the denticles. Left shield point away. Attributed to: Rick Snow This is similar to S6, but the die lines cover a larger area, and are at a different angle. Ordinary die striations are usually not collectable, but in cases such as this die, where the lines are deep and very obvious, the collector appeal increases.

40454418831CMS64RB111883 Snow 1 CAC Full strike with very few marks. This is a very popular variety with the 1 sticking out of the pearls. Rick Snow S1 1883, 1 in neck.

Die crack from the shield to the rim at 12:30. Attributed to: Chris Pilliod This is a very bold misplaced digit variety. A few of the high grade examples known come with vivid purple toning. This is usually seen on proofs which were stored for many years in sulphur-laden tissue or envelopes. Perhaps the purple toned examples of this variety also were stored for many years in a similar way. Aside from the few high grade specimens known, this variety is quite scarce
214918841CMS65RB7441884 Snow-2 MS-65RB PCGS (PS) 99% RED. Here is a blazing gem with outstanding color and great eye appeal. This is the discovery coin of the Snow-2 which has a rusted die reverse. This is the only example yet seen.

This is a very popular and dramatic doubled die. It is one of the top 10 varieties in the series. The doubling is only visible on the right side of the obverse, mainly on the feathers and AMERICA. This doubling can be confused with the extra outlines found on the letters of the legend on the 1864 With L to 1886 Type 1 design. This is the real doubled die

Late die states show heavy clash marks. Rev. P: Olive leaf and shield points connected to the denticles. Late die states show heavy clash marks. Attributed to: Bill Fivaz This is a fabulous variety. It seems to be very rare, as this is a very obvious blundered die and would likely be noticed if widely available. The lines appear to be caused by aggressive scratching on the face of the die with a pointed object such as an awl. It is possible that the lines are caused by a mass of small strands of fibers which got caught on the die during the hubbing process. This would be called a hub-through. This variety was first described by Bill Fivaz in Longacre’s Ledger, Vol. 8.1, January-March 1998
