Variety Summary

The ‘Pick-Axe’ variety is a very popular variety because it is dramatic, easy to spot, and readily available. This obverse variety is paired with six different reverse dies: two non-variety ‘Shallow N’ Type 1 dies, a non-variety Bold N Type 3 reverse, and three Type 2 dies (DDR-007, DDR-013/CUD-002, DDR-019). The single ‘Bold N’ Type 3 die marriage is the rarest.

Additional Notes

Obverse

Class IV Offset Hub Doubling
Doubling see in BERTY in LIBERTY.

Oddity: A large, pick-axe like die gouge in the ribbon where the L would appear gives this variety its nickname.

Reverse

Six different reverses seen.
