It can't really be called a "pick" as the dealer website said it was heavily clashed. But if a person can't find an 1889 VAM 23a, this might be the next best thing? Will add a few close-up photos as I can.

Thanks for the comments, a nice VAM I am really happy to have located. Likely send it in with my next slabbing bunch to ANACS.

Wow! If I hadn't seen the date I would have guessed 1889-P VAM 23A!

Almost but not quite Dennis... this one was definitely one of the last cuts on the list and, if it weren't for the fact that my own status of "clash junkie" already made the set heavy on clashers and being that this one also has a not as "Wow" later die state (like the 21-S v15e), it probably would have made it because it really is one of the nastiest clashes there is.

VAM-19b2? The reverse is particularly incredible.

ya. it was years ago but that looks precisely what my memory recalls. i thought it was a 23a, at first, just a different die state.

i was so disappointed, i tossed the au back into the tub. i should have kept it for cool factor alone.

thanks for pointing it out. i tried finding it in the list for my last post, but did not.
