1859 low 9. Not in terrible shape. Has some cracks on the rev, and repunches on the obv. Looking for a hand in learning more on her and a possible value?

Now Coins and Canada or some dealers may say that a "low 9" is worth a premium over a regular one, but it really isn't. The last digit on all the working dies was hand-punched into the dies. Because of that, manual striking by hand, there are highs, lows, rights, left, rotated CW & CCW. with over 100 Reverse dies used, there are probably 10-20 that are some gradient of "low". It's worth the same as a normal '59 and VF-20 wear-wise, but there's some corrosion starting and some odd toning. Keep it as an anomaly but you won't get rich off it.

I see, thanks again. In saying that, Ive come to believe coins and canada may not be the most reliable source online. Have you a suggestion to an online source that contains better data?

I agree with gidjit. It is hard to tell, but I think PC59-47 (Obverse 23 + Reverse E25b) is likely.

Compare to the photos in the Haxby catalog that Wade gave the link for and you can probably confirm it.
