Characteristics are described with a degree of granularity intended for die identification more so than for die classification. A characteristic may not span the entire die progression. Thus, not all characteristics may be present in any one coin.

OBVERSE ATTRIBUTES: The Ear is doubled at the inside right wall. A faint dash can be seen under the second 8 in the Date. Marker: None.

REVERSE ATTRIBUTES: A chip is present on the rear of the top Arrow Head. Marker: None.

COMMENTS ON THIS COIN:
  • This coin has all of the attributes associated with the VAM-43 and has been certified as a VAM-43 by ANACS.
  • The interior of the digits of the Date appear to be doubled. Please see Section entiled Photographs of Special Interest. This doubling has not been noted as being present on the VAM-43.
  • The Reverse was subject to much die polishing below the Reverse Motto, In God We Trust, around the Eagle's Head and Neck, and along the edge of the Eagle's outer Feathers.
  • The cavity of the Mint Mark shows features that may suggest that the Mint Mark was repunched. Please see Section entiled Photographs of Special Interest. The possibility of a re-punched Mint Mark has been noted as being present on the VAM-43.

Comment: A dash is present under the second 8. From 1880-1883, the first two digits 18 were on the Working Hubs and the last two digits were punched into each Working Die. The bottom of the second 8 was centered over the tenth Denticle from the Bust Point. In some cases, a dash was placed on the Die as a guide to where the second 8 should be positioned. Comment: Doubled Ear.

Comment: Date Doubling: The 1 looks doubled at the top. The 8s look doubled in the cavity of both the upper and lower loops. The 3 looks doubled to the inside. Comment:

Comment: Comment: The Mint Mark looks as though it may be a re-punched Mint Mark. Can't say for sure as there could be many other explanations for the features seen in the Mint Mark's cavity that would have nothing to do with a re-punched situation.
