Population of Vam 1B3 VS 1B4

Post by Coins1776 » Fri May 24, 2019 10:03 pm

The 1B3 has sold more times at auction. In fact the highest auction record for a Scarface was a 1B3. Mine is a 1B4. Does the difference in die progression affect a 1B3 to 1B4 value?

for a 1934-S VAM 3 MS 62 .

I think a prior post went over this but here is additional info.
The H-8 scar (break)goes just across the face, there are 10 in SSDC pop top pop is 64
The H-9 scar (break) stops at the neck there are 9 in SSDC top pop 63
The H-10 scar terminal stage goes into the hair There are 18 in SSDC top pop 63.
Yours is a H-10 and is known as a board scar. Most of the scars are from the board era.
Once you get yours graded, value can be determined.
Good luck
