As with all restrikes, J89 was struck with Starry Reverse B ("The Cracked Reverse").
Struck circa April 1869. Linderman’s term as Director is terminated in April of 1869. Auction records and emission sequence of the Cabinet Coin Restrikes strongly indicate that the copper and mule Cabinet Coins were struck just prior to Linderman leaving office.
One known - ANS/Korein:
State A - description from personal viewing by Dannreuther and Sholley
Obverse: Lightly grainy, small rust lumps in front of face, apparently no crack on wrist but piece is hairlined from old cleaning and retoning so that may obscure start of crack. Prior to J85.
Reverse: Small lump between feet of first A STATES, NITED STATES O crack stronger, cannot see crack from wing or crack from right foot of A in DOLLAR, but piece is hairlined from old cleaning and retoning so that may obscure these smaller markers.
