1879-S VAM-1D Closed 9, Clashed st
1D III2 1 ∙ C3a (Closed 9, Clashed st) (183) I-2 R-5
Obverse III2 1 – Normal die of III2 type with closed 9.
Reverse C3a – Clashed die with partial incuse st of Trust from reverse showing in hair vee of lower hair edge. Polished die with fine lines in fields and no other die clash marks showing.
1. 'st' clash from 'Trust' on reverse showing in lower right hair vee with no other die clash marks showing on reverse, which is unusual - must have been polished off Obverse & Reverse dies since there are polishing lines in fields. ONLY clashed letter variety for 1879-S so far!
2. Same exact reverse as VAM-91 and VAM-97
