    Popular 1865-S Inverted Date, XF45

    1865-S $10 865 Over Inverted 186 XF45 NGC. Not discovered until 1958 or so, this peculiar variant was created by a mint employee who obviously was not paying attention. The first three digits in the date were punched into the die upside down. Once this error was discovered, some of the initial mistake was effaced but mostly the inverted date was simply covered up by punching in the numerals as they should have been. While scarce, the inverted date is actually not as difficult as the non-inverted (normal) date, a situation analogous to the 1909/8 double eagle and 1909 issue. This piece is a bit softly struck over the highpoints of the devices, but noticeable portions of mint luster remain around the devices. Moderately abraded, the most significant mark is located toward the front of the truncation of Liberty's neck.(#8643) (Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 264G, PCGS# 8643)
