Owner Comments:

WB-103, closed 3. The variety was identified by a process of elimination, as there are no errant digits in the date (WB-104, WB-105), nor is there a large die lump in Liberty's lap (WB-102). WB-103 does call for an errant 8 in the denticles below the 7 in the date. And while there is something between the two denticles immediately below the 7, even under very high magnification I am hard pressed to identify it as an 8. Bugert and Wiley do state that in a second marriage of this head die the 8 is no longer visible. This coin most likely falls into this category. No die cracks or marks to report, just a well struck, nicely toned specimen. Bought from Jason Carter, July 2008.
