Monster grade, super-PQ 80s HELP please.. Possible VNA page coin ..Should be easy, grrrr

Post by CascadeChris » Fri Dec 20, 2019 8:17 pm

Hey guys, got me a super sexy 7+ CAC girl. So, so close to 8... and she will make it into a PL holder one day due to a fresh polishing. Shes all there, whoever sent this in must have been slightly disappointed. I haven't owned, or even had, an 8 pass through my hands yet. So amazing ANY survived in such a high gem level with how they went from stuck coin to bag, from bag to bank etc. Amazing.

Anyway, back to the coin. Shes really lacking much in the way of minor PUPs but the date and mint mark doubling should nail her down.

I tried matching the rev by way of the S/S mm doubling with no success of even confirming which rev.

So then I did a brute-force attack going down the medium-S mm page one at a time using the date doubling, again, no-go.

Then I took a look at the VNA page and I'll be damned, this one has the "dot on leg" (similar to the v11) that looks like a match to the HA VNA coin pictured. Couldn't tell much more tho. And it says it is a "dash-8" coin but mine is not. Possible same rev? Or maybe the "dot" is in the hub??

So, if anyone can help I'd appreciate it. Cant let such a PQ 7+ pass through my hands without nailing her down for the SSDC Reg!... This one shouldn't be hard with such distinct date doubling especially on the first 8 combined with an RPM.

Thanks guys 😎...

I'm not sure that the S is repunched. That could just be some unpolished slop from the center of the punch.

Thanks for looking Ant. The date doubling, while somewhat similar isn't a match.

That thought did occur to me, the "thing" inside the lower loop is what gave me pause as it appears more vertical like a baby gouge but the upper loop appears to have that typical "fang" we see on s/s RPMs so I went with occam's razor. I did however forget about it being an s/s and tried to match the mm position only and still couldn't nail it down. Do you have any suggestions on which rev it is JB?
