Draped Bust Cents
1801 3 ERRORS 1C MS
Description & Analysis
The cents of 1801 are notable for several die-punching errors, and the most popular of these are the two die marriages known as the 3 Errors varieties. In addition to the nonsense fraction reading 1/000, one stem was omitted from the wreath, and letter U in UNITED was first punched upside down, so that it appears to read II.
S-218 is rare, while S-219 (photos) is fairly common.
