1888-O VAM-14 High Near Date

Discovered by Leroy Van Allen, June 1980.
14 III2 9 - C3a (High Near Date) (181) I-2 R-3
Obverse III2 9 - Date set high and further left than normal.

1. The VAM book shows the date close to the very near position. There may be different die pairs that loosely meet the VAM 14 specification, but a die study of 1888-O will probably result in those being assigned to a different VAM number.
2. One specimen with a date that does match the VAM book has a long, vertical die scratch from between AT in STATES, alongside the o of God, ending in front of the eagle's beak.

Date clearly left of normal position. This is a match for the VAM 14 picture shown in the VAM book. (JB)
