The "Mumps" Variety

SMALL DATE, SMALL FRACTION

100/000 (Corrected Fraction Die)

The S-249 is a famous Guide Book variety showing a blundered fraction.

Such blundered dies are extremely popular!

ATTRIBUTION: **

OBV.: A prominent die lump below Liberty's jaw.

REV.: The fraction denominator was initially entered as 000, then corrected to 100.

Die is rotated 30 degrees counter-clockwise.

Comment: Die State I. Walter Breen's large cent Encyclopedia claims that mint engraver Robert Scot was running low on die steel when he resorted to taking an 1801 reverse die (first used to produce the 1801 NC-3), corrected the 1/000 fraction error, reannealed the die, and reused it to produce this "corrected fraction" variety of 1803. Breen conjectures that the reannealing shortened the die life and may have contributed to the reverse die break above ED. In this early die state, examples that are sufficiently well centered, such as the present specimen, show the break clearly. There is no evidence of the die bulge before Liberty's bust that later develops.
