Variety Diagnostics

The date was first punched too far left and slanting downward. It was then repunched level and to the east of the first impression.


The first image shows the early die state, with all four numerals clearly doubled. The second image shows a repolished die, with the duplicate date quite shallow. In the very latest state (third photo), only a faint trace of the final numeral is visible, and NGC will not recognize the variety on such coins.
