1891-O VAM-1A4

Discovery 2013 Russ James

III2 - C3a (Clashed Obverse D & O, Reverse BERT, Die Gouge AT) (181) I-5 R-5
Obverse III2 1 - Fine vertical polishing lines on clash mark in front of forehead.
Reverse C2a - Two small diagonal die gouges between AT in STATES. Occurs after V-1a1 die clash but before V-1a2 die break.

Comments:
1- One other thing Leroy missed this coin has a very rusty reverse die
2- So the order in progression is:
  • 1st VAM-1a1 Clash
  • 2nd VAM-1a4 Clash Polishing and gouge
  • 3rd VAM-1a2 Depression to Bump
  • 4th VAM-1a3 Terminal break on Bump with non displaced radial break from UNITED
  • VAM-1A1 Through 1A4
3- This is a very grade sensitive variety in all 4 VAM's, AU-58 and up are extremely Rare! and the VAM-1a3 is just as rare in any AU grades.
