Description & Analysis

Only one die marriage is known for the Wreath Cent with lettered edge, but two varieties exist for this edge device. S-11b has two leaves following the letters, while S-11c (photos) has but a single leaf. There's no significant difference in rarity, and both varieties are collectable.
