Description & Analysis

It is obvious that several 1882-dated dies remained on hand when 1883's production commenced, and these were overpunched with an 1883 date logotype, resulting in various combinations of duplicated numerals and 3/2 overdates. These varieties are extremely popular, and some of them may be found in Mint State. The catalog values are for the most obvious and popular variety, FS-301. The coin illustrated is a late die state example of FS-302.
