Technically a filled die is not a variety. It's an error.

I have a ton of NB 1864s and have documented at least 7 or 8 interesting die varieties. Of those, the Tall 6 and the Short 6 E over F in FD are the most well known. There is also a repunched 6 and a repunched 8 in 1864 among others.

The filled die phenomenom is common in the NB 1864s and therefore I don't believe it gives any premium.

Furthermore, it is irresponsible for this TPG to claim this as a "NEW F/E Variety" - it's nothing of the sort.

Hard to tell from the pictures if the made up TPG is accurate with their guesstimate on grade.
If they are making up varieties then I really can't trust their grade.
Looks really nice, but $200 seems like a lot unless MS63 or higher.

I agree on the price estimate. Closer to $80-100.

That being said, I do believe the NB 1864s overall in Mint state are undervalued. I tend to buy any I can get my hands on.
