Description & Analysis

The obverse die used previously for Cohen varieties 1 and 3 became damaged, presumably from heavy contact with some piece of machinery, and it continued to be used for four more die marriages with a jutting projection affectionately called by numismatists the Spiked Chin (C-5 through C-8). The most often seen of these is C-8, though C-6 is a favorite with die state collectors for the progressive failure of its reverse die.
