Combinations

TYPE 1:

wired edge, obverse A reverse A
(Space/dot/wire ~40%)
Earliest type. It appears that the "wired" edge was abandoned sometime around midway through
1992 production. Represents approximately 40% of total mintage.

TYPE 2:

flat edge, obverse A reverse A
(Space/dot/flat ~40%)
A continuation of the TYPE 1, but on different planchets with flat edges. This type also represents
approximately 40% of the total mintage.

TYPE 3:

flat edge, obverse A reverse B (Space/space/flat ~3%)
An extremely uncommon variety, referred to as the "between/between" type. Represents about 3%
of the total mintage, perhaps a little less.This type could become desirable in the future.

TYPE 4:

flat edge, obverse B reverse A (Dot/dot/flat ~1%)
The rarest variety, referred to as the "to dot/to dot" variety. Represents less than 1% of the total
mintage, with some estimates as low as one half of 1%. This type may be worth saving for the
future.

TYPE 5:

flat edge, obverseB reverse B (Dot/space/flat ~15%)
This type exhibits a new obverse and reverse style. Represents approximately 15% of the total mintage. This is the type is found in Proof sets and BU Mint folders.
