GROUP A – T touches walk - Br 527. LC-1B3. - Die deterioration more advanced than last, with the upper right serif of the K in Bank now linked to left side of walk with a globular die flaw, and a crack links the bottom right of the same K with the bottom left of the adjacent N. A second globular die flaw at the left chimney, coming out of the top so that there looks to be smoke coming out. A faint crack links the bottom left of N in Province with the top of the left chimney. A flaw has also developed from the rim to the top left of the F in Of. Unc. 30% red, small corrosion spot at 3 o’clock on rev.

The consistent diagnostic with this obverse die is a flaw from the upper right of T in Montreal, which connects with the lower right corner of the walk before the bank building. A light crack tracking horizontally from the bottom left serif of the B in Bank, and a small crack linking the middle of OV in Province are also omnipresent. Additional flaws are noted for each specimen as they developed. (Previous offerings from Cooper collection: GBA 12 lot 124; GBA 13 lots 740-741). Courteau 55.
