1898-S/S

Coin has a diagonal line in the bow like VAM-8A, perhaps is an earlier die state of the 8A... is my best guess.

in my opinion, the S has some metal that was "pushed" outward.

i can't comment about the rest of the vam features.

Not a V8/V8A. The coin has seen too many parking lots for me to try and help. :roll:
