I need help, with my 1878 S

Post by bhinkle » Fri Dec 06, 2019 7:38 pm

I have an 1878 S, that I see doubling in most of the letters,
in PLURABUS, LIBERTY and maybe the ear.
I looked at the doubled RIB vams 6, 16 and 111, but all that
I saw, there were differences.
I think it has an engraved wing feather.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You, Bert

I believe you have a VAM 6. R in trust broken and 4th star unbroken.

Thank you John,
I thought I looked at that and saw something different, but everything matches.
I'm very happy, with a HOT 50 vam 6.

Sure some nice clear photos here. What equipment did you use to obtain these close-up photos?

Thank you Daryl, on my close up pictures.
I use the cheapest digital microscope, that I could find.
I do however spend a "lot of time", making sure I have the right focus, angle and distance
and I try and hold it steady and then snap the picture.
It even has eight tiny LED lights, all around the inside of the end, that you can adjust the brightness.
I think they are now selling for about $15 delivered.
PM or email me and I can give you the information.
