Okie I think VF at this stage is pretty darn good grade for these ones! I have checked hundreds on line from F to MS65 and seen only the 2 so far.

In Rob Turner's book, "Dies and Diadems", he has the repunched (corrected N) 1891 Obv 2 as Obverse die O2S-L10. That die struck 1.2% of all 1891 Obv 2 LD/LL cents. It was mated with Rev die R10-L11. The is no R/P'd N on either the SD/LL or SD/SL 1891 Obv 2's.... only the LD/LL Reverses.

I am so lucky I found my coin in the garden shed must have fell out of my pocket when I got the lawn mower out.

It still needs lots of handling I'll have to be more careful in the future.
I agree with all others in how hard it is to find this variety in any grade but the higher grades are treasure's for sure.

Here's the one I have

I just noticed that CV's coin and my coin have a mark on the Queen's check in about the same area is this the same on all of the repaired N's I only have this one to compare?

I can only find one of mine (I loan lots of coins out for research/study) and it has no mark on the cheek either.

Congratulations papeldog! Very glad you found yours...very nice details on it...

Sorry Jey...mine is not for sale, as it's the best one I've been able to locate...

I believe it's even scarcer than the 1.2% estimated by Mr.Turner...they are exceedingly difficult to find...I'm estimating somewhere between 1:200 to 1:300
