Description & Analysis

1801 was a bad year for the U. S. Mint, and no less than four reverse dies were prepared with a nonsense fraction reading 1/000. One of these dies was a real mess, creating the 3 Errors varieties listed under a separate entry.

Of the remaining dies having the erroneous denominator, all resulted in fairly common die marriages, such as S-223 (photos). NC-1 is the sole rarity. On the reverse die used for S-221, this error was spotted and corrected by punching a 1 over the first 0. This is a common variety that may be added to one's collection at a reasonable cost.
