Hmmm. What did I find?

Post by vamnuke » Tue Nov 30, 2021 2:50 pm

Got this funny little scratch at a cotton leaf; and some of the reverse motto on the left is pretty weak. Maybe I should return this eBay catch as damaged...or just keep and give thanks everyone else was napping... :roll:

Too many upper tail feathers. No good. Better send it to me for proper... uh... disposal. :D

Rev. of 78 is just the tip of the iceberg on this one.

Wow, that eagle sure has a lot of upper tail feathers.
When in doubt... don't.

The original scribble scratches, done right, as it were.

Rolled the dice and came up 7 twice? (77?) no luck involved there, just a keen eyed VAMmer on top of his game.

Due to wear and crud, I had to poke it with a stick on the right OBV places to confirm V77 when in hand; the weak letters and outline of the die scratch we’re visible on the eBay glam shots. Now to be slabbed and see how it grades…
