Variety Summary

The lint and thread-like artifacts are a result of hub-throughs during the die making process. These fibers were caught between the working hub and the working die during hubbing impressions, thus the term ‘hub-through’. My explanation of the cause of the reverse anomaly is based on the many lint hub-throughs within the wreath, a well as the fraying of the thread-like artifact within the shield. Comments by David Poliquin.

Additional Notes

Obverse

Obverse develops a rim break from 7:00 to 8:00.

Reverse

Reverse is observed with a thread-like artifact entering the right side of the shield from the right wreath. Within the vertical bars of the shield, the artifact seems to fray. Reverse may be identified by a die chip off the lower right side of the E of ONE. In addition, lint hub-throughs are seen throughout the entire wreath.
