7A (revised) III2 4 · C3e (O/CC Low, Doubled 0 & Peripheral Reverse, Die Chips 90 Top) (181) I-4 R-7
Obverse III2 4 – Die chips and gouges between and above 90. Die breaks on rim below date on LDS.
1. Part of the 1900 O/CC family. Very rare and in great demand. AU specimens have traded for four figures. From the few VAM-7As that have turned up, the obverse appears to show rapid and progressive die damage that spreads from the '9' over to the first '0'. By this stage, a large rim cud has also formed under the date.
2. The 1900-O/CC VAM-7A is one of several O over CC coins. These VAMs include 1900-O VAM-7, 1900-O VAM-7A, 1900-O VAM-8A, 1900-O VAM-9, 1900-O VAM-11 and 1900-O VAM-12.
