1889-P VAM-7A I2-R5 WR031821. High 9, Slightly Doubled Ear, Reverse of VAMs 5G, 23.

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.

Obverse: III2 7 Very slightly doubled right inside of Liberty head ear, but not enough to list separately. Slightly high 9 with date at right edge of normal lateral position and set lower than VAM 23B date.

Die marker - Die chip on right side of right 8 on later die states. Patch of diagonal fine polishing lines right middle outside of Liberty head ear.

Reverse: C3a Same die as VAMs 5G, 23, 23A, and 23B, but later die state and no die clash marks present.

Comments:

1. There are four Die Sequences (major die states) for VAM-7A.
