Description & Analysis

A single die marriage of 1817 includes this obverse die on which the 7 was punched over a 3, which remained quite visible on the struck coins. Most examples seen are of the later die state in which an arcing die crack spans the reverse from letters ME to numerals 50. This very popular overdate is plentiful in worn grades but rather scarce in Mint State.
