1795 50C 2 Leaves--Scratched--ANACS. Fine Details. O-106, R.6. The usual die state for the rare O-106 variety. A die crack from 12 o'clock reaches the E in LIBERTY, and a die crack at 5 o'clock joins the bust tip. Another die crack from the rim through the 1 in the date to the lowest curl is present but extremely faint. A subtle ridge connects stars 13 to 15 and continues clockwise through the date. This ridge extends counterclockwise toward Liberty's forehead, although this portion is faint. The reverse die is in worse shape, even though O-106 is its sole marriage, while the obverse die previously coined other Overton varieties. A die crack bisects the reverse between the A in STATES and the I in AMERICA. This die crack is pronounced near the eagle's head, where the die is divided into two different planes. The crack becomes nearly invisible for its course through the right (facing) wing and the field below, until it becomes more noticeable at the I in AMERICA. This die may have broken during its preparation for use, and if so, that would explain the rarity of O-106. The reverse die may only have been used when no other was available. This example has clear dentils for the grade. Liberty's hair has ample definition. The eagle's left wing and tail display partial plumage. A pinscratch from 5:30 to the center of the base of the right wing confirms the ANACS designation, but there are no other mentionable marks aside from a moderate, long-ago cleaning. Light golden-brown toning is limited to the peripheries, while the centers are pearl-gray.
