Hello Everyone,
This is my first post as I have just joined a few days ago. Thanks for having me. I have an 1878 7TF B2 Short Nock with an Open O Rev. The Rev is similar to VAM 146, but I'm having trouble matching up the OBV. Even though the rev is similar the OBV is not. May be a different die pairing. I don't know because I'm far from calling myself an expert, more along the lines of an apprentice or something. Anyway, here are some of the attributes "I believe" exist on the OBV and hopefully I can get help matching it up. Thanks in advance for your help!
A. Doubling/Tripling in "LIBERTY"
B. Doubling in hair below liberty and other parts of hair on OBV.
C. Doubling in Cotton Leaves
D. Weak Nostril
E. Possible Doubling in Designers Initial and Date with an area struck thru/die damage between hair bottom and top of 7.
F. Broken point on left star #2 and possible clash mark on the neck.
G. Doubling in right stars and possibly the ear.
H. Motto may be doubled but beyond my ability to distinguish.
I. Rev is similar to VAM 146 but I believe it does show a little more separation in the stems due to polishing.
J. Possible doubling at bottom of tail feathers, stems, and leaves.

Not sure if any of the Open O's have the same OBV. I welcome everyone's input. Thanks for having me!

Open O in God + gouge through R in LIBERTY = VAM 146.

Welcome to the addiction. (No wonder that it's so difficult to locate '78 P's in the wild.)

Hey guys, thanks for the welcome and the comments. Sorry it took me so long to respond. My job sometimes requires odd hours. Have been collecting for a while. Excellent. I thought I might have been on the wrong track. Thanks again!
