1921-D VAM-1AA1 Die Gouge E of ONE
Discovered by Rob Joyce, December 2001
1AA1 IV 1 D2a (Die Gouge E, Scribbling Die Scratches #58) (189) I-2 R-5
Reverse D2a -
Diagonal die gouge from denticles up thru lower left serif of E in ONE.
Fine die scratches in various directions on over polished tail feathers around eagle's right leg and between eagle's left wing and body.
- Vertical die scratch below second from top right berry cluster in left wreath.
In the VAM-1AA1, a diagonal die gouge runs from the denticles up through lower left serif of the E in ONE. Note that
has a die break enlarging the 3rd left obverse star.
This VAM marked the 27th VAM assignment that fell into the VAM-1 bin. All the letters from VAM-1A through 1Z were used, causing this coin to roll over the VAM nomenclature to VAM-1AA. In December 2004, Jack Lee discovered VAM-1AG had the VAM-1AA die gouge on the reverse. VAM-1AA1 is actually an early die state of the old VAM-1AG. VAM-1AA became 1AA1 and VAM-1AG became VAM-1AA2.
There are three other known dies with gouges through the E in ONE. Be sure to also check the
to ensure you have the correct attribution. VAM-1U runs up and right, while VAM-1AA runs up and left. The VAM-1AK die gouge is more vertical than this VAM and VAM-1AK crosses through both the N and the E of ONE.
