1890-P VAM 25A Bearded Eagle but not listed as such?

Post by paralyse » Tue Jul 03, 2018 12:48 am

Testing photo posting here with this one as well as confirming attribution.

Picked this 1890 last night for $19 and change. Another pretty well known VAM maniac noted that this is a Bearded Eagle clash, and we both agree on VAM 25A, but he pointed out that the VW Bearded Eagle page doesn't have this date and VAM listed.

So I went back over every 1890-P VAM listing on VW and pretty sure that 25A is the only one I could find with a Bearded Eagle clash on the plate coin examples.

Here is the coin, not too bad for under 20 bucks, looks low-mid AU to me from these seller photos. (If I goofed and this is not VAM 25A please let me know so I can go back to searching!)

Thanks! :)

Agree with the VAM-25A attribution and grade. That's a nice find anytime, and for $20, outstanding!
