Description & Analysis

Dozens of dies were required for 1848's large mintage. As in the Mint' earliest years, there was some sharing of dies, yet most marriages were from dies unique to each particular Newcomb number.

There are 48 numbered die marriages, but two of these are no longer recognized, as they have been proven to be simply later die states of other marriages. In addition, N-19 is a proof-only variety. The rarest varieties are N-30, -32, -33, -42, -44 and -46. Still, there are plenty of common ones for the type or date collector. Among these is N-13 (photos) with its nice reverse cud break. Only in MS RD is this date rare overall.
