Looks like a real cool coin
Anything odd about the date? What about a grade?
That's about all there is to it. Normal for the series to have dates like this.
For grade, I would say f-VF waiting a better pic.
You mean Fine 15 or VF 20
Old thread, but why do some sources call the comet head (O106) an R2 variety, while others call it an R5? (Including my Overton book.)
And no, I'm not getting confused with the O106a.
But I must be missing something.
Typo (one of many) in the 4th edition of Overton. It's an R-2 (and common even for R-2s)
Appearently it didn't get corrected in my 5th edition either.

The early mint frequently made dies with the first two or three numbers in the date entered and added the last one or two digits when the die went into service. I have a die variety set of 1797 half dimes that clearly show this policy. For example the last “7” might be much larger than the first which indicates that two different punches were used to enter the “7”s.
