Owner Comments:

Now that Gerry Fortin has listed nineteen different die combinations for this common date, I can lose myself for hours trying to make the correct identification. Who says a coin has to be rare to be interesting. I finally concluded this coin is a F-102 (Ahwash-2, Greer-104). The deciding factor was the knob on the 6 which appears to be recut and completely closes the top loop. A lovely, deeply toned coin with no idiosyncracies worth mentioning. Bought from the Bowers and Merena Baltimore Auction, July 2003, lot 674, where the cataloguer commented: "Stunning eye appeal, far nicer than expected for even this lofty grade."
