Variety Summary

This die failure is perhaps one of the most extreme of the entire small cent series. It hosts 4 cuds and a very large sunken spot near the T in CENT. The details are lost here because the die had sunken inward, thereby not allowing the devices to come in contact with flat planchet.

Additional Notes

Obverse

None noted.

Reverse

Four cuds with one each at 10:00, 2:00, 5:30 and 6:30. The die is also sunken with the spot centered about the T in CENT.
