Owner Comments:

Cracked Obverse #2, die crack starting at Star 7 proceeding diagonally through Liberty, then to rim below foot - 1838 cracked obverse #2 exhibits a die crack starting from the rim, down through Star 7, Liberty's body and down along the outer right edge of the shield. The die crack curves and exits to the rim directly below Liberty's foot. Reverse G exhibits considerable wear with a weakened die clash mark, the clash resulting from the pairing with the Partial Drapery obverse. Reverse G is again utilized by the Philadelphia mint in 1839 for additional coinage.

Plate Coin: Greer plate coin
