Description & Analysis

The Head of 95, tentatively attributed to John Smith Gardner, features a lower, but more consistent, relief to Liberty's portrait. This reduced die failure and resulted in a greater number of coins per die pair. Six die marriages are known for this type, only S-68 being moderately rare. The example illustrated is S-71.
