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.

1888-O VAM-14 I2R3 AW112417

Obverse: III2-9 Slanted date is set in the leftmost Near position.
Reverse: C3a Normal die. Heavy file/polish lines in and around the wreath bow. Heavy die/polish lines in the eagles scribbles zone, the arrows, the eagle's wing/neck gap and the olive branch leaf cluster.
Comments: The fields on this coin are very smooth and lusterous, almost proof-like. If the one in the date was on the right side of the denticle gap and had the tail feather gouges, it would be VAM 41.
