1889P...Are there any other differences between Vam 61 and Vam 39 other than die polishing marks on Liberty and clashing

The listing for the 1889P Vam 61 does not list doubling on the cotton leaves or the hair curl. I know they mimic each other but does the Vam 61 also have the same doubling as Vam 39? Thanks in advance!

This is the 1889P I asked about above. I just want to make sure it's VAM 61.

Looks like it's a VAM-61 to me based upon the polishing line above the Y

Thanks colwillys and hairfield1, I believe it is VAM 61. I just was not sure about the doubling that is listed on VAM 39 that it has. The date looks correct for 61 the best I can tell and the polishing lines. But both VAMs date placements look close to the same to me, but I am learning.

The date, clashing around the neck, lips and the die markers all add up to VAM-61. It's a good bet that VAM-39/39A and VAM-61 are the same.

Thanks PacificWR, I was wondering if that was a possibility! I appreciate you looking!
