Description & Analysis

A single obverse die originally prepared for 1813 coinage was overpunched with a numeral 4 to create this variety. As with the E over A variety, no attempt was made to hide this correction, and the readily visible 3 has added greatly to this variety's popular appeal. Both of the cataloged die states are fairly common in circulated grades. A few Mint State examples have been certified, but gems are quite rare.
