Was going through my 1859's this morning and I would say this is one of my favorite Rev. D/C on the 59's

I thought I would share!!

That's a beauty MG! I think extensive die cracks make a coin a lot more interesting.

I never get tired of seeing 1859's from your collection and your photography is easy on the old eyes.

Thanks for sharing!

Here's one of my favorites.

All of these are great examples (and great photography).

That's a nice PC59-771 (77+P15) Don!

Someone could make a nice specialty collection just putting together a die state set of P15 reverses. I believe it has more die cracks in it's last state than any other 1859 N9 reverse. Yours is a late enough die state to also have the heavy obverse 77 die crack at the back of the R of REGINA.

After the P15 reverse die was retired, the obverse 77 die was paired with the P15a reverse die for a short time. Then obverse 77 was retired also and replaced with obverse 77a. Obverse 77a was paired with 4 reverses and none of them lasted very long.

The whole grouping from 771 to 77a4 (6 die pairs) is interesting to collect and study if you like die cracks.
