I am 99% certain that is an 1844 N-5 (R-1) -- because the N-5 is the only variety of the year with a restruck first 4.


To be more even more sure, I would like to see a closeup of the second 4, and a closeup of the EN of CENT would close the deal.


Also, there should be two fairly prominent die polish lines running just left of and parallel to Liberty's neck. They start very near where the chin and neck meet and run straight down to the bust.


Hope this helps...Mike


p.s. the 4 is restruck, not doubled per-se.
