Re: Die Studies

Alan, Sorry for getting you into this 1888-S die study,but you know you love it!!! Those figures you pointed out are quite amazing and show that this date and mint are understudied. Maybe because of the cost of this date & mint and low mintage. Kind of like the 1884-S. I have no doubt that the 88's ...

Re: Polished 1888-S Proof, Vam ???

I checked the Vam 2 and Vam 13. No arrow gouge on either . Took another photo of the date placement, it seems to be a near date, which neither the Vam 2 or Vam 13 look to be, in hand this looks like a near date.
