Description & Analysis

Die marriages S-120 and S-121 are known with either the normal, plain edge or an experimental "gripped" edge. This consists of a series of indentations on the edge which look like knife cuts running at a right angle to the die faces. These marriages are also two of only three for the date having the old Reverse of 95 with a the upper right part of the wreath ending in a single leaf (the other is the very rare NC-1, plain edge).

S-120b (photos) is fairly common, while S-121b is only slightly scarce. Both may obtained at just a modest premium over the most common varieties.
