Variety Summary

This repunched date is generally recognized as the most desirable RPD of them all. The repunching bold, very wide on each digit, and easily identifiable in all grades. Premium on any variety is a factor of supply and demand. Although the supply for this variety is relatively high, the insatiable demand drives the premium this variety commands.
