Picked this up at the Saskatoon coin show this weekend, I believe it is a 1880s VAM-28, welcome to add any of the photos to the page.

Traits shared by several other 1880s. The 5th left star is broken. There is a small spike pointing downwards from the eyelid.

Maybe wait a bit on putting pics up, I'll try to get better quality photos for you.

fantastic pics- plus i have loved searching and buying this date with
heavy die file lines, typical of PL/dmpl examples.
I buy em up if i can see deep dark fields in scans- re submit regular business
strikes in higher grade -hoping for PL/DMPL = I break em all out & submit raw
Congrads on a nice example

I am struggling to improve my photography, am thrilled to obtain this coin and still haven't finished photographing it.

Most of my small photographs are accomplished by cropping a full frame/full coin shot, instead I need to be using extension tubes or bellows to obtain better magnification of small items, such as the eye.
