D: Small rough area between shield and the rim at 12:00. Die flaws out of the denticles at 9:00. Attributed to: Larry Steve Popular due to the repunching and broken ES. Some collectors, as a challenge try to put together year sets of the broken ES dies, which are found on every year of the Rounded Bust design. {64, 64}

1864 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.

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}

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.

Obv. 14: (C) Bold repunching visible in the lower loop of the second 8. The die shows extreme die abrasions creating outlines on all the design elements and letters. The date area shows no sign of this abrasion. Rev. M: Shield points and olive leaf just away from the denticles. Extreme die abrasion on the field areas only. Die crack from the rim at 9:00 through the left wreath to the tip. Die crack from the rim at 11:30 through the shield and the right wreath to the lowest arrowhead.

Sleepy Eye's Snow 1 S1 1882, 88/88 (s), Repaired 2. Obv. 3: (RE) Wide repunching visible inside the upper loops of both 8’s. The 2 has a broken and repaired top loop, a digit punch defect which can show up on other dies. On late die stage examples, this feature may not show. Compare with S7. Rev. C: Shield points and olive leaf connected. Late die stage: Rim cud at 6:00 the length of 5 denticles. Attributed to: Larry Steve The date on this variety appears to be quite sharper than the portrait or the legend. Was the date repunched late in the die’s life? This variety is sometimes called the “Sleepy eyes” variety.

Snow 8 1883, 83 in denticles. Obv. 13: (RH) A 3 digit is punched prominently into the field above denticles and below 8 & 3 in date (spaced between the digits.) An extra 8, possibly two of them, are also in the denticles below the 88 in date, but not as dramatic. Die State A: Die striations from 12:30 to 6:30. Rev. M: Right shield point connected to the denticles. Left shield point and olive leaf away from denticles. Die state A: Die striations 11:00 to 5:00. Attributed to: Chris Pilliod This is a very bold misplaced digit. This variety is found in numerous die states so I would expect numerous example to be available. In fact this variety is quite scarce. The coin shown is die state A.

This is a scarce issue, although a few hoards have surfaced over the years. A significant original roll was sold in Auction ‘80 for $40,000. These were all a slightly late die state with wavy fields which gives the coins a look like melted butterscotch. Sharp early die state pieces are harder to find, The premiums for the 1886 Type 2 over the Type 1 have fluctuated over the years. When a space was added to the popular coin albums in the 1980’s its popularity took off. In the late 1980’s when certified holders became the collectors choice, interest waned as the difference was not initially noted on the holders. In 1990 interest picked back up when it started to be noted on certified holders. It is typically labeld on certified holders as Variety 2. When we see variety we think of a die variety. Strictly speaking, the design change is a different type, not a different variety, In the early 2000’s with the development registry set collecting, the 1886 Type 2 was demoted to the variety set and not included in the regular date listing. This hurt its demand somewhat in the highest grades since it was now deemed not essential to competing with other registry sets. The most interesting variety is certainly the Large 6 over Small 6, S1, which can be collected in both Proof and MS format

Hat Tip Rick Snow S1 1887, Doubled die obverse. Obv. 7: (RE) Pivoted hub doubling with the pivot at 9:00. Wide doubling on AMERICA and feather tips, gradually lessening towards the center of the design. Die stage B: Light die crack through 88 in date. Rev. G: Olive leaf connected to rim. Die stage B: Die crack in right wreath from 5:00 to 3:00 with a section in the field between an oak leaf at 3:00 being very heavy. Die stage C: Die cracks through left ribbon end. another from the rim at 9:00 through left wreath at 7:30. Die stage D: Die cracks from wreath to rim at 2:00, 4:00, 6:00, 9:00, 10:00. 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

AA: Shield points and olive leaf connected to the denticles.A die crack follows the center of the left wreath from 7:30 to 9:00. Attributed to: Marvin Erickson There are numerous varieties of this date with similar misplaced digits. Very similar to S29 and S30, check date position.

B: Major doubling (ne) visible on the edge of the shield. 4 vertical lines per stripe. Doubling visible on right wreath, and upper left wreath. This is a very bold doubled die, and should receive Attributed to: Kevin Flynn much interest from collectors. However, reverse varieties tend to get overlooked.

Also, some portrait elements show multiple impressions. Two small nubs inside the 0. This may be repunching. Die stage A: No die erosion beneath the date. Die stage B: Heavy die erosion under the date. Looks like wide repunching. Rev. C: Shield points and olive leaf away.Class II, distorted hub doubling. This is a scarce variety with only a few MS pieces known. Usually we talk of doubled dies and as an extension of this syntax, we call this a quadrupled die obverse. It is an unusual variety for the Indian Cent series. Die stage A pieces with no die erosion under the date are very scarce
