1880 S LRG S, Dbl'd Date VAM?

Post by jrfaust » Sat Mar 18, 2023 4:57 pm

I've got an 1880 S that I've been working on & off for the last few months. Can't seem to nail it down. I've been working with @Jodemyer and we both are stumped. I see that Brent @fogie has several discoveries for this Year and MM. You can't miss them, seems like every VAM page I open, he's discovered it! :lol: So, hopefully I can get you experts to chim in.....
Here's what I see:
OBVERSE
Doubled Date
Doubled Profile (Lite)
Doubled Cap that extends down thru back of hair/UNU is doubled lower inside of letters
PUPs: Die scratches near cap foldand tip of cotton leaf.
REVERSE:
Large S tilted slightly left with some shrapnel in lower portion of upper loop.
3 Die scratches in upper left wing and what I believe is a die chip near upper tip of left wing.
Here are some photos, I've got plenty of them but I'll just post what I feel will be helpful.
Thanks everyone for your help on this :popcorn:

Thanks @Vam-mysterio The doubling on the date is a bit different as well as the mm seem lower and more tilted left than mine. Also the pups don't match mine coin.

Thanks Juan! Hopefully other will give me some insight. I have several coins to be verified going to JB, maybe I'll send this along. Again, thanks for your response on this coin.

Hey Mitch! Nice to hear from you! I looked at V84 and V35, the date doubling is different and the MM is lower and tilted more left than mine. Hope that made sense? :D
