How To Use This Guide
To use this guide you must first determine the Judd number of the coin. This guide uses the “short” Judd numbers for identification (J60, for example). The short Judd numbers and descriptions are listed below for your reference.
Once you have the Judd number, click on that number in the left-hand menu or in the table below. You will be presented with the die stating page for that variety. The left menu is available on every page, so if you make a mistake or what to die state a different variety, you can easily come back to this Home Page or jump to another Judd number.
