low shield no J.E.B ? half


Recommended Posts

From Iverson

The vast number of dies being used were the Low Shield Reverses again coupled with no J.E.B. type Obverse dies (DISH L516). There are however, a small number of High Shield coins to be found (DISH L514- 515). It is therefore reasonable to assume that given the vast number of coins required that older unused High Shield Reverse dies were dug out of storage and used once again.

I would put the figures at around 95% being Low Shield and 5% High Shield’

It appears that a tiny number of Low Shield Reverse coins exist with the J.E.B. initials on the truncation (DISH L517). These are extremely rare.
