Re: Two 1881-S questions

Die chips between the loops on the 8s are not cause to consider a coin "abnormal". You may however wish to keep looking (beyond VAM-1). There is surface doubling on that same 8 and compare your second 1 to the same on the VAM-75. Hope this helps.

Re: 1883-O VAM-39A ??

It is very conceivable that the specimen LVA looked at did not display the ear doubling. It turns out that many of the "double ears" are transitory and therefore make poor PUPs. There is a theory that some "double ears" develop over the dies use - another theory says they degrade over the dies use. ...

Re: 1883-O VAM-39A ??

LVA has ask (emphatically) that we NOT submit coins based on the pitting all over the devices ( as seen on many 1883-0). This sort of pitting is clearly of a different origin than the "rusted die" typically seen on the rev. ( but not always). See the big VAM book - 1883-0...

I would stay away from it. Even in the unlikely event it is real.
