View Full Version : Question on difference between S215 & 1801 NC1
09-19-2012, 07:00 PM
Of all attributions of the early dates, the 1801 S213, S214, S215, NC1 have given me the most problems. I finally have them down except the S215 to the 1801 NC1. Is the NC1 a later die state of S215? Or is there something else to tell them apart?

According to Noyes, S215 is a combination of obv. 3 and rev.A and NC 1 is the 3 B combination. Same obverse with a different revese. The key is to examine the reverse for attribution points that are part of the cut of the die. Both have similarities in die state clashing that are mentioned as part of attribution but, if detail is available, check the die specifics first.
Both varieties usually show badly clashed reverse dies but they are slightly different.

copperhobbie - Thanks, but I've done that. The only real difference I gather from the reading is that the first T in STATES is thick on the NC1. But in the pictures, I can't tell the difference. It hints around that the clashing may be different but I'm not sure.

I was talking about the pictures in the Noyes book

I believe the OP is asking you to post pictures of your coin and not the ones in William Noyes' book...
Take it easy.....Leo
