Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez: Very neat variety of a Small Date over a Large Date. The 1 and 8 digits in the date are overlapped with one another, with the 8 digit showing the strongest overlapping of the two. The Small 8 is overlapped towards the North, East of the Large 8 on the date. This date is already very scarce as it is and having this prominent variety makes it an even more of an interesting coin.
