1858 J-211 Re punch Date or something else?
I like to collect your thoughts on the "8" on this pattern Indian cent. Not sure it would be a repunch date being a pattern. I did scan most of the Heritage auction archives looking at their photos of other 1858 Pattern (J-208, 211, 212, 213) but I did not come across any other obverses that show the same characteristics. I would appreciate anyone in the community as to their thoughts?
