1884-O VAM-3 Far Date, Doubled 1, O/O Line on Left

Discovered by Leroy Van Allen, June 1966.

3 III2 2-C3r (Far Date, Doubled 1, O/O Line on Left) (181) I-2 R-3
Obverse III22 - 1 double at top to left. Date set further right than normal.
Reverse C3r - II O mint mark doubled on left inside as a line and at top inside as a diagonal line.

Comments: VAMs 3 and 38 do not share the same obverse. The LVA plates listing both are outdated, but serve as a good way to compare a VAM-3 to a VAM-38. The key feature for a VAM-3 is the interior of the repunched mint mark is much stronger than the listing would indicate. The 'line on left' feature is the left edge of a nearly complete right side of a secondary Oval O mint mark that almost fills the opening of the primary mintmark.
