This variety first showed up in the Longacre’s Ledger, but no one really took notice of it because the discovery piece was in low grade. This is an incredible, eye-popping variety. How could they?!
The strongly misplaced digits in Liberty’s pearls is what makes this variety so appealing to collectors. MPDs that occur in the portrait tend to command attention and a higher premium than most other types of varieties. Always take a good look at Liberty’s portrait; it’s a wonder a misplaced digit hasn’t been found in her headdress.
