1878 8 Tailfeathers: Can't find VAM

Post by emargo » Tue Feb 23, 2021 5:27 pm

This coin has a very pronounced date doubling of the "1". The doubling slants diagonally to the right. The rest of the date is also strongly doubled as well as the stars to the left and right. Thank you!!

Thank you for the leads. Looks like it is a VAM 19 due to the 2 top berries on the left side of the wreath (VAM 20 only has one berry here).

Doubled eagle's beak is pretty attention-getting.
When in doubt... don't.
