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.

1891-O VAM-9 I2R3 AW090817

Obverse: III2 4. Date set in the Far position. Second 1 in the date is a bit slanted and higher than the first one. Numerous die cracks throughout on the obverse .
Reverse: C3e. Mint mark set a bit high, centered and upright. The later die state of this VAM-9 has impressive die cracks. Die crack thru tops of UNITED letters with crack also going up to rim above E will eventually lead to a break with field displacement in VAM 9A.
Comments: This specimen has little cosmetic eye appeal due to improper cleaning before being attributed.
