1838 Capped Bust Half Reeded Edge Die Pairing Help

BECOKABECOKA Posts: 16,957 ✭✭✭

Hello Capped Bust Half Fans.....

I'm trying hard to figure out what I just picked up, I think I've narrowed it down to GR13 or GR14 from the reverse and then it looks like on the obverse there is a cud forming near the date over the dentils. Which would make this possibly a later die state than GR13 obverse so maybe this is GR14?

Can someone confirm? I can't find a whole of information. If anyone knows of a website that details the differences in each die/die state that would be awesome.

Thanks ahead of time

    It's a GR-14.

    Yay, thank you. It's been a few years, glad to see you are still around.

    Second part of the question still open as there are many GR numbers where I can't tell any difference. Looking for descriptions to identify them.

    I don't know of a website, I just have several iterations of the book that Dick and I worked on and used that.

    Do you know if there are any plans for a new printing of the book or maybe if a request for it to be published in digital form on Amazon is possible?

    I believe there had been a second printing, but the numbers no doubt weren't large. As for other plans, I do not know.
