1898-P VAM-2B Closed 9, Retained Cud NITED

Discovered June 2006.

2B III22 · C3a (Closed 9, Retained Cud NITED) (190) I-3 R-6
Reverse C3a– Die crack from rim above N thru tops of ITE and up to rim above D with slightly displaced and tilted field.
Small die chip between I & T.

Comments:
Specimens with no IT die chip are EDS and are called VAM-2 and should command less of a premium than the full late die state complete with die chip and clear field displacement. LDS specimens will exhibit a thickening of the break coming off of the top right of the E and die breaks beginning to form where the break meets the denticles in addition to a noticeable increase in the size of the IT die chip. Plate photo is of MDS specimen.
