1878-CC VAM-19 Wide CC with Dot

Discovered by Jim Baxter, December, 1976. Revised 2008.

19 (revised) II1 - B1f (Wide CC with Dot) (179) I-2 R-3
Obverse II1 - Die 1 - Short vertical polishing line in front of eye and vertical die scratch across left cotton boll stem.
Die 2 - Die scratch just below LIBER and diagonal die scratch from denticles up to sixth right star and raised lump at denticles next to sixth right star.
Reverse B1f - Normal die of type B1 with widely spaced mint marks, III CC, at mediium height. Left C has die chip in center and is punched deeper than the right C. Die marker - Short vertical die scratch between eagle's left wing and neck.

Comments:
1- VAM 19.2. and VAM 19.1 has the exact reverse in an earlier stage and a completely different obverse die.
The two marriages DO NOT share common obverse markers.
2- VAM 19.1/19B is the earlier marriage, and the odd lumps around the E of ONE from the hub are polished away to traces part way thru this marriage. They are never present on a VAM 19.2/19A.
3- The four key things anyone needs for the 19 reverse are the left C heavier than right C mintmark, the B1 long nock, the crack thru the bottom of DOLLAR and the little vertical gouge in the gap between the eagle's neck and wing. see Below

Note: The next two photo's are from a VAM-19.1 LDS, the later die state after this is VAM-19B with full displaced fields

Note:
Stuff around the E is a defect in the hub itself. Other dies (like the VAM 1B reverse)show traces of this feature, but this is likely the strongest example. It's mostly polished away when they did the obverse die swap forming the VAM 19.2, so this makes a good reverse PUP to tell the two very similar marriages apart in photos.
