Flattened reeding


The obverse is a rusted die originally used for the 1818 B-2 quarter dollar, and the reverse is a similar rusted die originally used for 1818 N-8 and N-10 large cents. Evidence of at least two strikes appears on the reverse, with considerable doubling of the letters in the legend and denomination. The 1860 date from the Seated quarter undertype is visible, upside down, between the wreath and TES of STATES. Struck in silver over an 1860 Seated Liberty quarter with a reeded edge, the edge reeding flattened.
