1904-O VAM-31 011318

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 Ear lobe is tripled at the bottom. The tripling may not be seen in cases of weak strikes and mintage occurring at the end of the die's production lifetime. The Date is set in the normal position.

Markers: None.

NOTE: Die 2 has been noted as showing nose bridge doubling.

REVERSE ATTRIBUTES: The Mint Mark is set high, tilted to the left, and positioned slightly to the right of normal. Die file lines are seen on the Eagle's wings.

Markers: Die file lines are present in the lower extremities of the Eagle and in the Wreath Bow. Coins minted by Die 2 show die polishing lines in the Eagle's wing-neck gap.


A) Because die file lines appear in the Eagle's wing-neck gap and slight doubling can be seen at the nose bridge, this is a Die 2 VAM-31.

B) This is a non-clashed version of the VAM-31. A clashed version of VAM-31 is posted to Silver Dye Photography @ http://www.silverdye.us/wiki/Main/NeOr1904V31AW102717.

C) Die file lines can be seen on the Eagle's body and Wings, with swirling lines in the Right Wing.
