Although research has likely shown the overdate feature to be nothing more than repunching of the date or a defective punch, this reputed overdate is still collected as a separate variety. Here is one of the nicest to survive, and a condition rarity that was recovered from the S.S. Republic wreck some years ago. The surfaces show a few busy areas in the fields from strike and handling, but the central devices are bright, frosty and mint fresh. Rather sharply struck and simply incredible in its state of preservation. This is the finest example of this variety recovered from the shipwreck or from any other known source of random survival. Impressive quality!
