1926 VAM-2 Top 50 New Obv Die?

Post by alefzero » Fri Aug 20, 2021 9:37 pm

I have what I thought was a Die at some point, but does not match it. The squiggle at the tiara is is absent and the die polish at TRVST does not match. It also does not have the Die characteristic crack. One might think that it is perhaps Die 1 before the crack developed, but the die is worn. There is very pronounce orange peel texture in the field by the forehead.

Since there are other DDRs for the date, not all in the the lists. Here are a few shots that had me believe it was the VAM-2 reverse.

Not Die 1, at least as listed. No crack near the base of the neck.

For Die 2, the die polish over TRVST is not present.

The thread impression does not appear there, though there is a hit about the same place. That worm is too long to miss. However, there is a die marker that someone might know or observe on their coin. I have an arrow to it.
