Is your 1889-P VAM 22 clashed? (new photo added)

There isn't much remaining evidence, but mine is:

And yes, that is a raised line on the lower jaw in the first photo.

Sure it is not a misattributed 19A?

Yes. I double-checked before posting... no crack at the date and 3 full denticles of space between the point of the neck and the first 1 in the date.

I sold one or two on eBay within the past month and will look at my detailed pics later. I might have noted an additional PUP. IT may be possible this is a new obverse pairing or another state. But let's confirm the exact die first, before marching down that alley.

my 22 has light clash at the neck and the clash up from wing to right edge of n
but no scribble line on the jaw (mine is pretty marked up on obv so if the scribble was there no evidence now)

I had to go back and investigate the long line on the chin after oldcollector called it a scribble.
He was right! And the long one has several friends closer to the end of Liberty's chin.
I totally approve of this new feature! :lol:
