These tables show the accumulated die cracks for each reverse in its last known state. If your coin is an earlier state it will not show any or as many die cracks. Where possible we have tried to indicate (by underlining crack grade number) the most likely first visible crack or two to help ID early state coins. Cracks are graded 1-4 with 4 being the thickest and most obvious. Since this is a work in progress there may be errors or corrections to make from time to time. It is our wish that these tables make IDing 1859 narrow 9 reverses a bit easier.
