DIE VARIETIES

This issue can be (so far) broken down in to six different Hub States
based on the different stages of the damage evident to the Hub.

Hub State #1 - Properly shaped serif on the right of the base of "F". Both sides of the serifs at the top of the upright extensions of the letter "U", in the word "FEBRUARY" are undamaged.

Feb #1 - Properly shaped serif on the right of the base of "F". Both sides of the serifs at the top of the upright extensions of the letter "U", in the word "FEBRUARY" are undamaged. Plating flaw appears above the head of the character. Obverse shows two small Die Cracks extending from both sides of the Maltese Cross into the fields. *Estimated value -$5.00*

Hub State #2 - An appearance of extra serifs on the right of the base of the "F" and the top right serif of the second extension of the "U" in the word "FEBRUARY". The serif of the first extension of the "U" in the word "FEBRUARY" has been damaged and appears to be weak. This appears to be the result of a Damaged Hub. The serifs on the "F" and the "U" were pushed over on the Hub.

Feb #2 - An appearance of extra serifs on the right of the base of the "F" and the top right serif of the second extension of the "U" in the word "FEBRUARY". The serif of the first extension of the "U" in the word "FEBRUARY" has been damaged and appears to be weak. This appears to be the result of a Damaged Hub. The serifs on the "F" and the "U" were pushed over on the Hub. A line is evident in the fields from the bottom of the dream catcher to the neck of the horse on the Reverse. Fields appear to have been "Tool Damaged". Obverse shows small Dots between the thistle and the Maltese cross. Die Deterioration is also evident at the base of the bust, above the "T" of the word "Cents". *Estimated value -$20.00*

Hub State #3 An appearance of an extra serif on the right of the base of the "F". At this point, the top right serif of the second extension of the "U" in the word "FEBRUARY" is gone and no longer appears doubled. It now appears similar to the serif of the first extension of the "U" in the word "FEBRUARY", that was previously damaged and appears to be weak.

Feb #3 - A very interesting three coin progression.

Feb #3A - An appearance of an extra serif on the right of the base of the "F". At this point, the top right serif of the second extension of the "U" in the word "FEBRUARY" is gone and no longer appears doubled. It now appears similar to the serif of the first extension of the "U" in the word "FEBRUARY", that was previously damaged and appears to be weak. Clearly a different Hub State and Die pair than Feb #2. The fields at this stage appear quite normal on the Reverse. A very small Dot below the "F" of the word "FÉVRIER" is used to follow this progression. Obverse appears problem free, except for a large Dot besides the right of the "N" in the word Regina. *Estimated value -$20.00*

Feb #3B - An extra hand now appears as indicated in the image above. The Die appears to have picked up this extra design from striking a previously struck portion of the feed sprocket. Currently classed as "Tool Damage Doubling". A very small Dot below the "F" of the word "FÉVRIER" is used to follow this progression. Two new Dots appear in the top right of the dream catcher. These Dots are noted now to further mark this progression. Obverse appears problem free, except for the large Dot besides the right of the "N" in the word Regina, it continues to deepen. *Estimated value -$45.00*

Feb #3C - The extra hand now appears to grow fainter. The small Dot below the "F" of the word "FÉVRIER" continues to link all three progressions together. The two Dots that appear in the top right of the dream catcher now deepen. A new and fresh looking Obverse is now used. *Estimated value -$45.00*

Feb #4 - An appearance of an extra serif on the right of the base of the "F". At this point, the top right serif of the second extension of the "U" in the word "FEBRUARY" is gone and no longer appears doubled. It now appears similar to the serif of the first extension of the "U" in the word "FEBRUARY", that was previously damaged and appears to be weak. Clearly the same Hub State but a different Die pair than Feb #3. An extra hand appears, similar to #3A & 3B.. The Die appears to have picked up this extra design from striking a previously struck portion of the feed sprocket. Currently classed as "Tool Damage Doubling". Collar Clash is also evident from 12:00 to 3:00 on the Reverse. Obverse beading weak at 5:00, due to a Filled Die. *Estimated value -$45.00*

Hub State #4 - Broken and weak serif on the right of the base of "F" in FEBRUARY. Both right sides of the serifs at the top of the upright extensions of the letter "U" are also broken off and appear weak.

Feb #5 - Broken and weak serif on the right of the base of "F" in FEBRUARY. Both right sides of the serifs at the top of the upright extensions of the letter "U" are also broken off and appear weak. This appears to be the result of a damaged HUB. Seems the sheared and displaced serifs were detected on the Hub and removed. A small Dot due to a Pitted Die on the inside of the last "A" of the word "CANADA" is used to mark this Die. Obverse appears problem free. *Estimated value -$2.00*
