Unexpected find on a 14.14

Post by DHalladay » Tue Aug 13, 2019 2:32 pm

This morning I tried to take a clearer photo of the spike under Liberty's eye that is shown on our attribution page for 1878-P 8TF VAM 14.14. I was pleased with the result... and surprised by what I saw at the tip of Liberty's eyelid – it looks tripled! :o The coin seen here is just a VF30, so this feature may be very prominent on one of the few AUs known to exist.

Superfine photo. Thought a 14.14 was in hand last week...but it's another VAM 7 (rats!)
Refrain from computing the total number of poultry... before the process of incubation has fully materialized.

Mis-ID'ed...was hoping it was 14.5 (Not 14.14), but is a VAM 7 (rats!).
