 Obverse 1: Crude Obverse Die

Reverse A: Excessively Crude Reverse Die


Obverse 1                                                 Reverse A


Comments: Located by Jason Feldman at the June 2008 Baltimore show. Both obverse and reverse have crude devices, especially the reverse with a simple outline of the wreath. The ribbon bow was formed with two circular engravings, the left image similar to a New Orleans mintmark. The obverse legend and date are poorly engraved. Weight is 2.3 grams.
