Variety Summary

Photos courtesy of Rick Snow. If these are the remnants of the raised space between the denticles, this variety is a result of a dropped working die. There is no evidence of this variety being created in the coining press. There are no compressed lowered fields, clashed design elements, or any other evidence. The top of the spaces are raised as the dropped working die caused an indent into the lower working die. There is not enough physical evidence to absolutely conclude that this was the result of off-center clashing.

Additional Notes

Obverse

None yet noted.

Reverse

The tips of what is believed to be remnants of three top of spaces is seen on the lower left side of the N of CENT. With only three top of spaces seen and no rim, it cannot be absolutely concluded that these are the remnants of off-center clashing. The shape is the same as the shape of space between the denticles. The distance between the denticles is as expected.

Nice die scratch to the left of the C of CENT from the wreath back to the wreath.
