I just found another 'funky feather' vam

Post by bhinkle » Wed Jan 22, 2020 12:19 pm

After getting help, remembering which lava or funky feather
wing vam my vam 76 was, I found another one.
I have a BU 1878 S, that after seeing pictures of the bottom
of the acid treated wing Feather and the acid field claw and
the top arrow feather, I think it is a vam 49.
I also see the dot, on the right wing.
I see the obverse is covered with some very strong die polish
lines.
I'm glad I found and got these out, after fifteen years or so.
What do you think?
Thank You, Bert

Thank you John and fogie,
I just read, about this vam, having a long continuous acid treated area, between eagle’s right wing and leg extending up between wing and body with smooth top and rough sides.
It looks like it goes, almost, to the top of the wing and body.
I also read, that 'latter die states have polished concave obverse with diagonal clash lines at neck' and I wondered if those are the short diagonal lines, I see, along the front of the neck, because I have noticed, that the obverse doesn't have much of a cartwheel effect, when I rotate it.
Thanks again, Bert
