Sample graph - Fryderyk Chopin, 50 Złotych, 1972
The second of only two die marriages known for the rare 1796 half cent, this one includes the pole which supports Liberty's cap, a design element that was hand punched into each working die. In addition, numeral 9 in the date is faintly doubled. The central device of Liberty's bust and cap were either lightly impressed or diminished through lapping of the die, with the result that these features wore quite rapidly on this variety.Like its companion No Pole variety, the With Pole marriage is also quite scarce, but it is the one more often seen. The number of collectors seeking both varieties is rather small, so the value of this coin is determined more by date collectors.
