Sale 60

Lot 402

1800 S-208 R3 VG10+. Double Struck with 180 Degree Rotation. Nice glossy chocolate and steel brown. Slightly sharper but there are three dull nicks or planchet voids in the hair below the ear and a small nick on the base of the I in UNITED, plus a tiny pitmark touching the ribbon over the fraction. Double struck, the second impression rotated nearly 180 degrees relative to the first. The undertype BERTY shows strongly where the date should be on the second strike and an inverted fraction shows clearly at the top of the reverse. A wonderful mint error with excellent eye appeal in spite of the minor defects, which are easily missed. DWH #2486.
Estimated Value $2,000-UP.
