1888-O VAM-9 091718

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: This Variety features a misplaced date. Top of 18 - 8 shows in Denticles as short raised tip on denticcle below the first 8 and a short raised bar in the adjecent right Denticle space (as viewed). Outline of a curved bar in Fields between Denticles in the space to the right of the second 8 (as viewed) and below the third 8. Markers: None.

REVERSE ATTRIBUTES: Doubling is seen at the middle and outside Right Laurel Wreath leaves. The top inside of the letters of the Denomination, ONE DOLLAR and the bottom inside of the last five letters of the Reverse Legend, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, are doubled. The Right Star is doubled, as are the bottom edges of the Arrow Shafts, Arrowheads, and the Eagle's Tail Feathers. There is less prominent doubling of the Olive Branch leaves. Markers: None.

COMMENTS ON THIS COIN:
  • This coin has all of the attributes normally associated with the VAM-9, and has been certified as a VAM-9 by the ANACS.
  • This speciment shows the top of the 1 and the first 8 in the Denticle and Denticle spaces.
  • There appears to be additional doubling in the Ribbon ends and some of the leaves of the 4th and 5th Clusters of both the Right and Left Laurel Wreathes.
  • Overall, the doubling of this Variety's features is about as good an example of doubling that I have seen.

Comment: Misplaced Date seen in Denticles (Arrowed). Please note that some specimens show only the 1 under the first 8. The other misplaced digits faded as the die wore. Comment: Doubling of the Arrow Shafts, Arrowheads, Tail Feathers, and some Olive leaves. Not all areas of doubling are arrowed.
