There are some changes in Dr. Haxby's 1859 Catalog due to a couple of discoveries.

First, Obverse Die 16a has been found to be the early state of Obverse Die 31a.

Second, Reverse Die G2 was paired first with Obverse die 31a and then with Obverse Die 31. This is the opposite of what was previously believed.

The new updated Catalog and Die numbers are listed on the most recent update (11-20-2018) on the News Page in the Catalog. These changes will move the affected dies into the proper order.

One die pair affected by the changes is the coin known as DP9 #5. It will now be Haxby catalog # 31a5 instead of the old # 31a4.

Happy hunting 59er's! We hope these changes will be a help to you.

Renumbering can be fun, CoinBuffalo. It gives me a chance to get my coins out and look at them again.

I noticed you were sharpening your attributing skills on gidjit's thread. Hope you will jump into collecting the 1859's by die pairs. It's a challenging but fun pursuit.

Well I just have one I got a few days ago. It'd be just my luck to have to renumber it already I'm not sure how I'll go about collecting them, but I definitely see more '59s in my future

Thanks for the update. I'll have to recheck all the earlier changes also. Unlike CoinBuffalo, in this case, I'm happy to renumber. It means you're lucky enough to own a DP #5 !
