Discovered by ?, Leroy doesn't list.
This coin is a Top 50 Peace Dollar VAM.

4 III 2 - B2a (Double Obverse, Micro D) I-4 R-5
Obverse III2 - Doubled forehead, eyelids, nose, lips, and chin. Motto letters and date digits doubled slightly on right side with WE having large shifts. Rays in
tiara from midway between E and E back are doubled on left side with last three having very distinct separation.
Reverse B2a - Micro D mint mark

Comments:Shared obverse with VAM-3. The DDO with Micro D reverse is much rarer than VAM-3 and sells for a substantial premium.
The Top 50 Book called it the "King of Peace dollar VAMs".
*Note the complete separation on the ray doubling. The nostril, lips and chin are also doubled.
The inside top of the D in GOD is also strongly doubled.

VAM-4 Mint mark is open in the center (and of course smaller than the VAM-3 mint mark). VAM-3
is filled in the center of the mint mark, making it easy to discern even in many on-line auction photos.
