Send to Leroy? 1891-O BERT

Post by ShaVam » Fri Apr 26, 2019 7:15 am

Hello, discovered some extra attributes to my 1891-O BERT that are not listed in the attributions. This coin is similar to 1A4 due to the die cracks, but I also believe there is:

REV: Extra clashed letters/denticles at tip of eagles right wing, between the E and D of "United", and between the D and the wing.
OBV: Slight doubling in Liberty, the bottom of inner ear, ear lobe, and a die crack that runs from the front of the L in liberty up thru the wheat leaves.
Could find any of these in the attribution description or in the pics, but I know you guys know these attributions better than me. Thanks.

On most variety listings each VAM has other things or Pick up Points that are not in the listing. If every small pick up point was listed the Encyclopedia, the book would be 8 feet thick or more. With out seeing the full coin, I cant tell you if this coin is a V-1a4 or a VAM 1a2.

But to your question about sending this coin to Leroy......No its a waist of your time and Leroys as well unless your not showing something amazing on this coin.

What I see at E, D, and the wing tip is PMD (Post Mint Damage) not clash die transfer.
I agree with Russ, do not send.
