1900-O VNC-23C 050117

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 Date is set a bit further left than is normal and is slanted (Near Slanted Date). Markers: None.

REVERSE ATTRIBUTES: A die crack runs from the Rim above the first T of the second word in the Reverse Legend, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and connects to the top of the A. A die break can be seen behind the Denticle where the Rim crack begins. The crack then continues along the top of ATES and produces a small displaced field between the ES. A small chip can be seen at the top left corner of the last S. The Mint Mark is set high. Markers: None.

COMMENTS ON THIS COIN:
  • This coin has all of the attributes normally associated with the VAM-23C. While this coin certainly appears to be a VAM-23C, my Page Heading notes this as a Variety Not Certified (VNC) as it hasn't been certified by the PCGS, NGC, ANACS, or confirmed as a VAM-23C by VSS.
  • Lady Liberty's Ear looks as though it may be doubled. This feature could be the result of Hub Doubling or Wear Doubling (Post Mint Damage).
  • This specimen's Mint Mark appears to be tilted slightly to the right. This apparent tilt is not noted as an attribute or feature of a VAM-23C.
  • A die crack can be seen running along the top of the last word of the Reverse Legend.
  • Starting from the O in ONE, a crack progresses through the Left Reverse Star and along the tops of UNIT of the first word of the Reverse Legend. The crack then enters into the middle portions of the ED and continues through the tip of the Eagle's Right Wing. That crack travels through the first four letters of STATES. Another crack is seen crossing the Right Wing, traveling into the Field, and through the first word of the Reverse Motto, In God We Trust.

Comment: The Date is set a bit further left than is normal and is slanted (Near Slanted Date). Please note the differences in the distance between the foot of each digit and the Denticle or Denticles below that digit. From the left to the right, the distance from each digit and it's anchoring Denticle or Denticles increase. Comment: The Mint Mark is set high and appears to be tilted slightly to the right. This apparent tilting is not noted as an attribute of a VAM-23C. Apparently the degree of tilt was not significant enough to be considered a listable attribute.

Comment: The Ear appears to be slightly doubled at the right inside wall. Because this feature was never listed as an attribute of the VAM-23C, it may have been considered as Wear Doubling. Wear Doubling is not listable. Comment:
