1878-S VAM-2 Broken R in Trust

Discovered by Howard Newcomb, February 1913.

2(revised) II 1 · B2b (Broken R in Trust) (184) I-2 R-2
Reverse B2b– Same as B2a, but with die fill on arm of r in Trust which can be partial or completely missing. (A hub break since it also appears on some 1878 P 7 TF & 1879 S). May always exist in combination with engraved wing feather.

Comments:
1- May always exist in combination with engraved wing feather. Therefore VAM-2 probably is not a separate variety.
2- if you think you have a VAM-2 please post on boards since this variety likely does not exist, the forum can help you
attribute the coin.

No LVA Plate Photo:
The plate also matches VAM-19A
