1878-P VAM-7 Tripled E

Discovered by Leroy Van Allen, December 1965.

7 I2 6 - A1d (Spike A) (189) I-2 R-4
Obverse I2 6- Doubled left stars, E, PLURIBUS U, and 187. The 'E' in 'E PLURIBUS is tripled.
The '7' in the date is doubled on the left side and tripled at the bottom.
Reverse A1d- The A in STATES has gouge across it (found on VAMs 7 and 14-5 ). Filled center of E in ONE.
Strong doubling on the outside of the left wreath, the letters of UNITED STATES and on the tops of the letters of the motto 'In God We Trust.'

Comments:
1- This is an eight tailfeather variety. This variety shares the reverse A1d with VAMs 6, 7, 14-5, 14-8, and 14-19. VAMs 6 and 7 are relatively common, but the other three are major rarities.
2- V7 does come lightly clashed and a very nicely doubled neck line
