1807/6 Draped Bust Large Cent Penny - Small 7 - Blunt 1
One major variety includes the 1807/6 Draped Bust Large Cent (Penny) overdate error - with a small "7" and blunt "1". This variety is extremely rare and valuable. This coin features an 1807 date struck over an 1806 date which resulted in parts of the underlying "6" being very clearly seen under and around the "7". The number "7" is also smaller than the "large 7" variety. The tip of the "1" in the 1807 date is also blunt at the tip - meaning it doesn't have a point coming off the tip like it does on the "large 7" variety. (Source of example image above is courtesy of Heritage Auction Galleries.) The difference between the small 7 vs large 7 (and pointed 1 vs blunt 1) can be seen in the example comparison image below:
