If there are other ones out there, go find one!l

Short, need OB pic of your vam 60 eye,
Dennis , that “lump” is on all OB’s of 26, 60, & 57’s.
Your Vam 26 is a late die state which was remarried after Vam 57.

Hope this helps

Re: PCGS just graded an 1878-S VAM 58 SP65!

Background: Philly Philly sent 10 B-1 Die pair to San Francisco’s mint. (They also sent B-1 Die to the Carson City mint.) Of the 10 Die pair, the SF mint only put 5 Ob’s & 8 Rev’s into use. These combinations produced 10 different 78-s B-1. (If you include the 27A) If you can find another one I will...
