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.

1882-P VAM-1H LDS AW091717

Obverse III2-1
  • Left 8 has chip at the top and bottom inside loop. Very slight doubling on right side of 2 ball at top.
  • Fine polish lines in the lower hair and D-void, LIBERTY banner and around the cotton bolls.
  • Die marker - Long vertical polishing line below lower cotton leaf.
  • Two vertical polishing lines in front of eye. Polish lines in the upper hair curl behind the eye.
Reverse C3a
  • Polish line at the top inside of the wreath bow opening.
  • Diminished pitting above the D of DOLLAR.
  • Die chip at the bottom inside of the G in God.
  • Overpolished left wing.
Comments: May be a LATER die state as pitting by the D has nearly disappeared due to striking and wear. Reverse die may be linked to VAM-23 as this coin looks to be in the early stages of V23 with the cracks et al.
