TRIGGER Happy GEM !! worth the wait.

Post by RMG1883CC » Wed May 29, 2019 4:50 pm

Waited a while to find a GOOD one ;) TRIGGER shows well.

COLLABORATION BY: SD MEMBERS---

[1904-O VAM-28A] Doubled Reverse Legend, Clashed Obverse G
Discovered by John Roberts, January 2003.
This coin is a Super CD Morgan VAM.
28A III21 · C4j (Doubled Reverse Legend, Clashed Obverse G) (181) I-3 R-5
Obverse III21 - Clashed die with partial G of God of reverse at front of neck. Rotated reverse of 10° CCW caused clash die marks shift. Same die as VAM 2A.
Reverse C4j - Later die states show polished die. Die marker: Horizontal die polishing line below LA.
Comments:
1. Nicknamed the "Trigger" for the two curved lines in front of Miss Liberty's neck that look like they were made for a finger to squeeze. They are the remains of the strongest clashed "G" that can be found in the Morgan Dollar series. Other varieties have more of the "G" showing, but none have the depth of detail of the 28A. This VAM is the first of the clashed "G" type varieties discovered, and is part of the Super CD collection.
2. The "G" letter clash was the result of both clashing and clockwise rotation. The clashing occurred in a very early die state, resulting in a very well defined letter transfer. This also means that the 28A is one of the few clashed die varieties that can be found in DMPL (Deep Mirror Proof Like) condition.

Nice one! The 28A is one of those VAMs that make 04-O fun to collect...

Nice looking Variety you got there, Ron. G transfers are a lot of fun to acquire and you got a good one.

I recently sold a 4DM in tiny white ANACS. Such deep mirrors made it such a fun coin to look at..DM clashers are so cool.
