1860-O Obverse 3 attribution grid


Although Obervse 3 displays no notable markers the date position is sufficient for attribution. The date is farther right than any other for the year, and is the only date for the year with a 0 that's slightly low in the field.

Obverse 3 Die States
  1. Perfect die.
No later die states have been observed.


Reverse D

The photo below shows the mintmark position for Reverse D.



1860-O Reverse D mintmark


Reverse D displays no notable markers other than the mintmark position. This mintmark position is the highest of any for the year.

Reverse D Die States
  1. Perfect die.
  2. Perfect die, but weakly struck around the NE in ONE, either from a clogged die or from heavy die polishing.
No later die states have been found. OC-6 is found with both reverse die states.
