1921-P VAM 1BI1

Post by Kissov » Thu Jun 27, 2019 4:50 pm

A late die state VAM-1BI1 with virtually no scribbles.

The area around the left leg does appear to match the listing:

And there is a thread-like impression on the eye, although only part has enough relief to photograph well. The balance is apparent using a hand lens. There is also a small dot under the upper eyelid.

Scribbles on the wing match as well:

One interesting observation is that the lower inner ear appears to be tripled:

It warms my heart when others are working on 21-Ps. :)

Thanks.

21s are certainly the red-headed stepchild of Morgan Dollars. I like them for many reasons - plentiful, cheap (relatively), and seemingly with endless variety.
