Hub Doubling?

1880-P VAM 50A:

There's slight doubling of the letters STATES and more noticeable doubling of the letters in IGWT. Is this hub doubling or strike doubling?

I would appreciate your help. Thanks.

Re: Date Doubling

Thanks for the information, Mitch. Appreciate it.

I'll ask Andy about attaching a clean copy of the date on the V50A Page.

Re: Date Doubling

It might be reflection, but I'm not sure. As you know, photographs can be deceiving. Examination in hand is the only way that a definitive determination can be made. Unfortunately, I'm not sufficiently skilled with a loupe to make such a determination. Through my AmScope, I see the same structure th...

Date Doubling

I’m in the process of photo-documenting my 1881-O VAM-50A. I have noticed that all of the date digits appear to be at least doubled. However, the description of the 50A doesn’t list date doubling as a listable feature. If the date is hub doubled, why wasn’t the doubling mentioned in the 50A’s descri...

Re: Microscope or a set of Bellows?

I use a Kaiser Copy Stand (205510 RS-1 with an RA-1 Arm - 42"). For the shots, I used 2 Cree 100 watt equivalent LED Daylight bulbs and 2 LOHAS 150-200 watt equivalent LED bulbs. Image 1 was taken with a Nikon D750 DSLR with a Nikkor 80mm Englarging Lens and 138mms of tubes attached. Image 2 was tak...

Re: Die Stage versus Die State from VW10 Board by VAMPICKER

I’m in the process of photo-documenting a single clashed 1887-P VAM-3A and a double clashed VAM-3A. I have been told that the single clashed specimen is the EDS version and that the double clashed is the LDS version. This seems to be supported by Mr. Van Allen’s Plate Photos posted to VW’s VAM-3A Pa...

Re: Back from LVA today

Congratulations, Andy. Just keep them coming.

Good thing my interest is photo-documenting Varieties rather than being a Variety detective. "Two-fer"; the mind boggles.

Rod.
