Discovered by Leroy Van Allen, May 1973.
This is a list coin on 2011 Roberts 11 list.
13(revised) II 5 · B2a (Doubled Date & Stars, Two Die Gouges Wing) (179) I-3 R-5
Obverse II 5– Strongly doubled date digits on right side, all right stars towards rim, all left stars on right side, UM in UNUM on left side and neck lower edge. Ear slightly doubled on left inside and right outside. Tops of cotton leaves very slightly doubled. Different die than VAM 6 II 4 but with similar strong doubling on date and doesn’t have strongly doubled cotton bolls and leaves.
Reverse B2a– Medium spaced II CC mint mark at normal height. Two short horizontal die gouges in middle of eagle’s left wing opposite neck-wing junction as in VAM 27.

Comments:
1- Doubled ear and cotton blossom leaves on the right edges, date, all stars on right and left on bottom edges.
2- Late obverse die state with die cracks in date, stars, and letters.
3- The reverse was first used for the VAM 13 then the VAM-27.
