1826 HALF CENT - COHEN 2
Variety Equivalents: Breen 2,
This was the only use of the
reverse die of this variety was also used later on:
The key to telling the two 1826 Half Cent varieties apart is to look at
the reverse of the coin and note the position of the leaf tip relative
to the final S of STATES. On 1826
Cohen 1, the leaf tip is right of the S; on 1826
Cohen 2, the leaf tip is centered below the S.
