Description & Analysis

A single die pair was used for this variety, its reverse shared with the Large 8 overdate, O-101. The obverse for O-102 bears a more obvious underlying 1. This Small 8 variety is far more common, and a handful of Mint State examples are known. From the somewhat eroded state of the reverse die, it is obvious that O-102 followed O-101 in production.
