Discovered by Bill Fivaz, September 1973.
This coin is a
5 III2 5 C3a (Doubled Date) (190) I-4 R-4
Obverse III2 5
- Entire date doubled. The 1 is doubled slightly on top left side of lower crossbar. First 8 is doubled at top inside of upper loop and die chip is between the loops on the left side. Second 8 is doubled strongly at top inside of upper loop and die chips between the loops on both sides. The 7 is doubled below the crossbar and on the right side. Date set further left than normal.
The 1887 VAM-5 has a repunched date showing remains strongly below the horizontal crossbar of the 7 and inside the upper loop of the 2nd 8. Also note that the two eights in the date have extra metal in the middle near where the loops meet. Date set further left than normal.
2-LDS especimens exist with clashing on obverse/reverse but no letter transfer,some especimens show die chips in loops of 8's.
