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.

1890-O VAM-10A I3R5 AW032219 Hot 50

Obverse: III2-6
  • Date set at the Near position.
  • Polished die with faint raised two bars to right of date.
  • Ear slightly doubled at lower right inside from polishing.
Reverse: C3a.
  • Round O mint mark centered and upright.
  • Vertical die gouge above O in ONE.
  • Minor pitting from the eagle's upper tail feathers into lower tail feathers.
  • Die break/chip in the upper part of the G of God.
Comments: The VAM-10A is often attributed by TPG's as the VAM-10. Be sure to learn how to distinguish the two or it could be a costly lesson. The VAM-10A sells for considerably less than the VAM-10, with the 10A having much stronger die gouges. The VAM-10A is the LDS of the VAM-10 and shows a heavily worn comet "tails" to the right of the date and reverse die gouge above the O of ONE.
