2 III2 2 C3a (Doubled Ear) (189) I-3 R-4
Obverse III2 2 - Ear strongly doubled at bottom and halfway up side. Hair strongly doubled just above the ear. Small die chip on forehead just in front of the hairline.
1. 1891 VAM-2 Double Ear. This variety has a fantastically doubled earlobe. When it is encountered, be sure to check Liberty's upper lip for a die break. If the break is present, the coin is a VAM-2A, a much more rare variety. The normal VAM-2 is available in high grade mint state examples without too much hunting.
