    this is a tough one. I am not sure this is a tall date. With the date position and repunching under the one it looks like N-5 to me but I cannot really see any reverse markers to confirm this.

    I agree with @jerryc39. I'm not sure it's the tall date. JMO.

    Thanks for the responses.
    I have the same problem ID'ing these coins.
    Some of the PUP's are so fragile that if the coin isn't MS they have disappeared.
    And based on Tom's images I don't see it as a Tall Date.

    looking closer at reverse I see some lumps on the E in cent that are in the right spots. Also a faint line connecting the top and bottom of same E. N-5 seems right to me. Interesting that PCGS botched the Tall Date designation.

    Really have to look close for even a guess. My decision, according to mozzillo's chart, is medium. The 6 appears to be straight up rather than tilted, this is the reason for my decision. Thanks for the post and thanks to mozzillo for the chart. Be safe

    N-5. Small date. Minor RPD on just the 1

    Thanks for keeping at it.
    Now I can complete the picture.

    The question now is, can I get NGC to redo the label?
    I've already got a slab being redone by them because they botched the face value on a foreign coin.

    I would think they would fix the error yes.
