1885-S conundrum

Re: 1884 O Questions

Doubled Bow - I do not think so - looks more like "ejection doulbing" or strike doubling rather than true Die doubling. Die Chip wreath - yabut it really is terribly common so not really helpful for attribution. Clashing on the neck on the other hand looks pretty cool and significant. Not really sur...

Re: 1886-S VAM-2 oddity

JR - This one did pass your desk at some point (I am sure) - ANACS MS-62 #5198987
I suspect it is a lamination sorta feature. It looks like it "peeled away" from the inside/side of the upper loop of the 6. (If that makes any sense to you ...)
