1853 O ARR & RAYS MPD 50C VP-001

Variety Diagnostics

What looks like the base of an errant numeral 1 projects from the upright of the main 1. There are two similar such dies grouped within VP-001: WB-2 (photos) and WB-4. In all likelihood, this is just a flaw rather than a repunching.


What seems to be doubling around the entire date is a characteristic of most Arrows dies and is not a variety.
