1844 Not in WB. Mispunched '8' in Denticles. Brilliant Uncirculated, with claims to Choice. Delicate...1844 Not in WB. Mispunched '8' in Denticles. Brilliant Uncirculated, with claims to Choice. Delicate russet-gold over the surfaces and boldly struck throughout. There are two separate distinct loops from a mispunched '8' in the denticles below that digit and slightly to the right. This variety has been reported by the Liberty Seated Collectors Club and the January 2004 Census noted that 8 examples were known at that time, one being Mint State (aside from the present coin). On the reverse there is a heavy guide line running through the center of the denticles above 'UNIT' of UNITED. Easily among the finest of this elusive variety, and a worthy coin for the specialist to obtain.
