DocSSavage, if you could show a full obverse and reverse then we can tell you the die marriage. The 1855-O has 19 different die marriages known to date, most are R3 but a few are R4.

I bought the Wiley and Bugert book and it looks like this could be a WB-102. I would appreciate others opinions. This die state is not the stongest for the horizontal O marks, but I do believe they are there.

Hey Mike, what books are available that show the different die marriages? Thank you.

The first one is a WB-1 (In Bill's newer book) and WB-102 in the older book and has a rarity of R3. If you look closely you will see a doubling of the base of the one on the left side, the 1 was repunched south. I am assuming the previous comment and image of the mint mark is the same coin as the first image? The reverse mintmark is repunched over a horizontal mintmark. The second coin is hard to tell, can you provide clearer images?
You will find Bill's newest books on the LSCC site under "Education & Resources". You can download the ones listed or try and find hard bound books.

Thanks HeyMike. The other one is a WB 101 (according to older book).
