Hello everyone!

Just picked up this lovely overdate today.  I am thinking it is Die Pair #4 - would you agree?

There is an extensive site to id the 1859 cents here. They say they list 239 die pairs ( didn't count them). Tried to do it for you and got a cross-eyed headache :P. Even on your large picture, there's not enough detail. Go figure.

Thank you for the link. 

Attributing based on obverse die doubling on the word "REGINA", looks like I have obverse die 77a. 

The only reverse die pair associated with this obverse that even closely resembles mine is reverse P15b - which doesn't exactly match the 9/9 or 5/5 on my coin.  It does match the diagnostics for the leaves, though.

So, maybe I keep looking.
