Obverse Dies: 6 Known
A total of six obverse and seven reverse dies have been cataloged for 1851 Philadelphia coinage. This is a difficult date to research for varieties due to limited movement in the date placement. Most examples are well struck and do not show significant die cracks. Three different repunched obverse dies are known.
