Very impressive Bearded Lady, congrats. What is that below the cap fold down to the tip of the second cotton leaf? Is it a seemingly impossible clash from the reverse wheat wreath or a strike through of some kind? Does it appear on all Bearded Ladies? If so I have never seen anything written about it.

If I am looking at what you are looking at, then it would not be "a seemingly impossible clash from the reverse wheat wreath". The shape doesn't match the wreath.
Also, I do not see that on my 41C.

Thanks Lee. I agree given the rotation it does not appear to be a clash from the reverse wheat wreath. My guess then is it is a strike through and I must have it's first cousin, cause it is on my coin too.

Nice! I love the bearded ladies. The clash detail on these just jumps out and grabs you :o

Is this in an NGC holder? I've picked 3 or 4 of these over the years, and strangely they were ALL NGC slabbed. One of them was even listed as 7TF. God bless their hearts.

@Shyatt01
Yep the same with this one
Just a lowly 7TF from NGC

I have one also. MS64 7TF NGC VAM 41C. About 25 yrs ago I cherry picked it for $100.00.
