Doubled 1, Tripled 7
Discovered by Francis Klaes, June 1963.
This coin is a
2 III2 2 C3a (Doubled 1, Tripled 7) (181) I-5 R-4
Obverse III2 2
- The entire date has been doubled with shift to the right. The top points of the original 1 is visible to the left of the new 1 with dot of metal at top. The 7 is tripled with doubling at the top and a dot of metal to the left of the crossbar and metal at the extreme lower left. One of the largest shifts of date doubling known.
1887-O VAM-2 1887/1--7 multiple punched date This variety has an interesting overdate. Many of the 1880 overdates have the last digit, possibly the last two digits repunched over the 1879 date. In this case, both the first and the last digits are repunched. The remnants of the first punch are seen to the top left of the one and the bottom left of the 7.
When attributing this VAM, be careful that the coin is not an 1887-O VAM-3 where the repunching shows stronger on the outside of the 7 rather than the inside.
