Description & Analysis

Briggs 4-D. A highly collectible variety, this coin owes its existence to profound Mint error. A Mint employee first punched the S-mintmark into the die sideways and, after realizing his error, corrected it by simply punching the properly oriented mintmark over the first impression.
