Look under the 8's between the date and rim. Also inbetween the digits. Clean shots or since you have it in hand have a peek and tell us.
The reason being the early years high mintages, and a new material that was being struck.....one that by 10 k strikes the die would explode......so lots of die marriages.
Let's first look at the obv. The date has been repunched using several different punches... one really needs to compare all the digits to others used the same year.
Notice the two 8's do they look alike? How about the 6 ???.....looks more like a 9 turn the picture over.....
Next look at the RL-2 The RL stands for right leaf #2 second from top .
One major variety found on shields is the missing leaf....now this has all the leaves,but look at the RL-2 notice the outer leaf ......sort of looks like a second thought. The broken star #2 on the reverse is the dead give away for the reverse type .
Shields are fun! Plenty of varieties to not only to be had....but found too!
