rev of 161
rev of 180
I suspect there was experimentation with a Hub Die in 1798 which led to the Hub die used in 1800 and this could be evidence for that. In this event, the touch up work with the fraction, bar and stems would be the key to distinguishing between them.
If either reverse die (in it's early state before the breaks) were used with the other's usual obverse pairing , it could have gone unnoticed to this day.
There was. Somewhere around 1798 S-172 thru 1800 S-212 are all from the same rev hub.
Thank you. It matches my experience, but I don't recall reading it anywhere.
But since Reverse CC matches the Reverse P so closely, perhaps it was used earlier or the S-161 was actually produced later.
