Description & Analysis

Only two die marriages are known for this date, both of them employing separate die pairs. The popular overdate is covered in another entry, and this non-overdate variety is slightly more common.

Most survivors are well worn and show mushy details from overused dies. The splendid Mint State example illustrated is quite exceptional in both respects.
