1879-S VAM-6?

Post by dorganmaulers » Tue Dec 17, 2019 4:11 am

I have what I believe is a VAM6, but it's missing a few things...

Similarities:

Open 9
Image

Full TIUST
Image

Diagonal Polishing marks (I think)
Image

Differences:

Mint mark almost straight, not as tilted as the other examples
Image

I don't see a polish line in the Y of LIBERTY:
Image

The wing isn't polished down to the field
Image

Any hints appreciated!

Try VAM-34, maybe.

The quest for 79 S Rev 78 is a wild ride. Very nice pics. I would try a V39.

Thank you all very much! I'm pretty confident it's a VAM-39 now.

My VAM-34 guess was very very close, giving myself a B+
