Help ID,ing an 1880 P Check Mark

Post by twohawks » Thu Jun 06, 2019 1:54 pm

OK I won this coin on Heritage and its a MS-63 PL coin. I cant find a check mark listed like it. It has really strong tooling inside the hair under the neck line. I have compared my VAM-16 EDS to it and its not right as well. From the photos, "Keep in mind the photo" not coin in hand, looks like it could have a knub and I think I see some remnants of a cross bar.

Russ,
I'm not sure yet because I think I need more information.
But if I was forced to make a guess from the information given, I would say VAM-23.
Maybe someone better at 80-Ps can say with more confidence.

Lemme get a clear picture of the 80 and I'll check against (rimshot) the ones i own.

Check for connected or disconnected leaves. That would narrow down the list to less than a handful.

I can't see your E gouges too well, but look at VAM-16 to start.

23 is an overdate but not a checkmark. I can't see the number surface in the pictures through the slab clearly enough to know what we're looking for :(
It's coming... :popcorn:

Russ,saw your first pic with the doubled neck bottom heading toward the designer's intial. It reminded me of the 45 series,V45,V45A,V45B,but some pup's don't match. Did have one that I thought was a Vam 45 possible,but when I got it, was some other Vam with doubled neck bottom. Have to check and see if I still have,seems I remember that crack going from date to the first rt. star.
