1904-S VAM-10 Far Date, Spiked 1, Doubled 4
Discovery 2016 - pacificwr
10 III2 7 - C4a (Far Date, Spiked 1, Doubled 4) (189) I-2 R-5
Obverse III2 7- Date set further right than normal. 1 in date has short vertical spike above bottom crossbar on right side, a hub defect also on 1904 P VAMs 3 & 4. Slightly doubled 4 at inside and top right of lower crossbar.
1. Leroy had stated that this is the same hub defect (spiked 1) as the 1904-S VAM-10. This "spiked" 1 in the date is a flaw in the date digit punch or logotype, and was not in the hub. He has revised his thinking based on different date placements of the 04-O V4,4A,4B; 04-P V3,V3A,V4,V10, 04-S V10,V12 and V13. Note that the "spiked" 1 only occurs in 1904 at all three mints.
2. LFCP (Large Full Coin Photos) is identical to Wayne Roberts' discovery coin which Leroy Van Allen assigned as VAM-10.
---Discovery coin does not have the beard spike.
