1882-O Vam 22A Reverse Gouges !!!!

Post by bigjayvee » Tue Aug 13, 2019 2:45 pm

The 1882-O Vam 22A, discovered in 2012,has no photos on page,but says in description "two distinct gouges above right wing tip,probably made by feed finger ejection". Can the discoverer or someone here verify that these photos are of the gouges and placements for the Vam 22A? Tough to photo,but if needed and these are correct,please use on Vam 22A page.
Thank you.

They appear to be slightly longer in the 2012 update plate, but those are the gouges in question
often the crusher of hopes and dreams

Since you have coin- could you look for any Rust pimples on eagle breast or anywhere else
Trying to view these various 1882 O vams for any correlation to O/S dies that had rust remnants from rusty stored
outside dies. Vam 38B has exact rust pimples as 1882 o/s series- so finding more O vams with rust would open
up further discussion/possibilities. thanks Scott

I've got a couple 38B's if you need comparisons...

I'll check all my 82o's when i get home for chicken pox for you if you'd like.

Thanks a bunch; I have the 38B's which really show rust on eagle
Rust was initially believed only on O/S -- So the more we find could lead to future discovery etc

I've been keeping a collection of unlisted obverse pitting on 82's... I'll start checking for the reverse as well. I thought it was common on that series. PM me and I'll remember to send new pairs/pics as i notice them.

Hey Scott,
Checked the Vam 22A for rust pimples and found a small amount on Eagles UTF's and some on LTF's, but nothing like the 38B or the O/S's and the obverse of the 22A is covered with them. While I was looking at this Vam 22A I found something else that might interest YOU,Take a look !!!! Honest opinion though, think it's one of those "poke it with a stick features",guess will never know,unless I crack it out :shock:
