    I know my pictures are not great, but this one is challenging me...so, thought I would let the CoinTalkers have at it.

    I'd say that one is in the running. I'm thinking the first leg on the M is a little too far from the scroll....

    nope not 140.

    I'll look closer later.

    the M to the scroll is slightly off.
    Star #13 is off.

    The A-A position eliminates a bunch of them.

    Sorry I'm late to the party on an 1827. I've been without power since Monday due to an ice storm. Messydesk is right. It is 121, a R-3 (scarce) die marriage.

    Date is a wide 8 1/2mm. and medium low, top of 2 is slightly lower than 187. All stars are large, star 1 is usually flat and it is 1 1/2 mm. from drapery. Other stars are relatively sharp. (At least until die erosion spreads the points out like on this one)

    Reverse- 50 C. is a close 3/4 mm., with a large C and short curved top on 5. Arrowheads are large and the upper one is solidly attached to base of A.

    Here's one that is a little easier to see the pick-up points.

    Thanks for the replies. Now I can label it.:)

    Purchased on Ebay for $47.02. I think I had a bunch of "just make sure it don't go to cheap" bids on and this was the result. Not a super exciting coin but I'm happy to add it to my bust half stash.
