Double ,Triple Hair Ends !!!!

Post by bigjayvee » Sat Oct 19, 2019 9:09 pm

What do you think :?: Found on an 1887-P, NGC MS64, looks like a Vam 13A, no mention of double or triple hair ends in description. Anyone else with a Vam 13A with these features :?: Thanks for looking and as always,all opinions and comments are welcome.

Strike doubling?

If you look at the photo showing the obverse designer's initial on the 13 page the hair there looks similar to yours.

Allowing for die/coin wear, I'd go along with doubling or tripling.

It's on all stages of this obverse. It came up in 2008-09 when I sent several submissions that ended up killing off the old VAM 16, but Leroy passed on adding it to the description back then.

Thanks for the comments and thank you J.R., for the Vam history lesson on this obverse.
