My Chihuahua 1856/4 CA RG is an overdate, as are all known specimens per Dunigan and Parker reference. Also,it has a major mint striking error. Can you spot it ?

Please share any striking errors in the Cap and Rays series that you have.

I see a multiple strike. The eagle's head and the snake are clear on the eagle's left wing. That same degree of rotation seems to be seen on a second series of lower rays on the cap.

There is also a possible small planchet clip at the 20 of the assayer statement.

Initially I thought I could see evidence of die clashing as well. No certain but

Hard to tell from these pictures.

My book on Counterfeit Portrait 8Rs is available from Amazon or from me directly if you want it signed.
