That is true about the 1861/62 date positioning of the last digit', but some extremely interesting ones do turn up, and I think this to be one .

That last "1" is so high up it's dug into the exergue line.

Is that what they call in the trade a mis-strike?

Excellent example Terry, and agree with you that this is extreme enough to be interesting and more desirable to collectors than most date width varieties.

The 1889 Wide Date, pictured below, is another more extreme example. It is also rarer and more desirable than the 1889 Gouby B Narrow Date, which is itself quite sought after.

That too is interesting. Unlike the OH pennies, there is a great uniformity between 1883 and 1894 which sounds counter intuitive but it's nevertheless true. So a variation like that one is definitely worthy of note.

It's also somewhat noteworthy that the vast majority of the wonky "1's", are on reverse G. Be they F20, F25, F28 or (perhaps to a lesser extent) the F33.

This one is on an F33 , so unusual for this combination of dies.

Here's two dates on F25's, neither quite as weird as Terry's example.

Maybe 6''s rotated differently
