Variety Diagnostics

Breen describes this die as 9/8/6, but the six is not visible. The exact nature of this repunched date is not certain, but it has traditionally been described as 9 over 8. The diagonal stroke of the 4 is distinctly doubled, too.

Comments

In the latest die state all underlying numerals are no longer visible, with just traces appearing as raised lines on the final numerals. NGC will not attributed examples having so few remnants of the variety feature (last photo).
