1890 O VAM 13A EXTREME DIE WEAR?

Post by bhinkle » Thu Aug 08, 2019 1:56 pm

I've been looking for the 1890 O vam 13A for a long time and I think I found one here.
It is an 1890 O PCGSMS63 and when I first looked at the reverse, it jumped out at me and I bought it.
Here are a many pictures
The only die marker, that is not there, is the die chip, in the fourth star, so I think mine is an EDS.
Enjoy, Bert

Nice! Are the green speckles on the reverse PVC or is it just an image artifact?

THANK YOU everyone,
After looking for this vam, for awhile, you can imagine how excited I was, when I thought I saw that extreme die wear.
I also noticed the tiny green specks John, in my digital microscope pics, but I couldn't see them, with my loupe, at any angle.
I was hoping PCGS would have spotted any PVC damage and list it on the slab.
Here are some pictures, showing the cool Lt wreath clash and the die wear, along the edge of the Lt wing.
Thanks, Bert

Wow. Sexy. :shock:

PCGS will slab minor PVC. Either because it's so minor they don't catch it, or, they either have a policy to let through very minor or it's up to the grader to determine if it's bad enough to warrant a kickback. My guess is it's the latter, graders prerogative.

Sounds like the specks are artifacts from your microscope. That's good to hear. Well, not so much if you rely on that microscope for finding PVC specks, I guess.
