According to Overton: "Same as 1 except a small punch has been sunk into the die at the junction of the two halves of the 3 to strengthen the connection." Thus, this secondary variety is referred to as the "Patched 3", while variety O-101 is called the "Broken 3". Well struck with an even layer of deep, rose-gray color across each side. Surface marks are nonexistent, and high point wear seems minimal for the Select AU grade level. The revised Overton Condition Census for the O-101 variety (2005) reads: (65,65,64,63,63).
