1880 P VAM-33a E Clash EDS "Picks"

Post by twohawks » Sat Jul 28, 2018 6:38 pm

Well I just got this in the mail and it is an extremely impressive example of this rarer VAM! The mid die states have an N clash as well as an UST clash but are much lighter :D

You don't see what? The E N UST clash or the grade? The coin is nicer in hand and I think its a low MS-64

I am still shocked the previous owner did not send this to Leroy. It has been quite some time.

I sent it to Leroy for the former owner awhile back, but with Marilyn's heath issues Leroy was sending everything back due to caring for his wife. The coin is in Leroy's PO Box currently, so the V-33a should be re validated shortly. I included a photo overlay and photo's, but I am sure Leroy will see it with out them. This example has a nice micron clash of the wreath that if you look closely and rotate the coin you can see it from below the chin, in front of the nose and eye as well as the back side of the bonnet.

The clash episode looks to be much like the Scarface, that being a vary centered die clash. If you look around the Eagles head you can see the hair clashing around the head of the Eagle.
