1889 Double Reverse EVERYWHERE

Post by Pareidoliac » Wed Feb 12, 2020 1:44 am

I don't see any listing with all this doubling on the reverse. It's everywhere.

* Doubled In God We Trust
* Doubled top edge of eagle's right wing
* Doubled wreath bow, right outside and inside left
* STATES OF AMERICA and star
* Right and left wreath leaves and berries
* Top of eagle's head
* Middle arrow head top, and middle arrow shaft bottom
* Tip of olive branch under arrows

I'll post more photos. I was thinking this is VAM-31 because it has a strong boomerang clash up to G in GOD and because there are strong polishing lines in E of LIBERTY on obverse, but all this doubling on reverse is not mentioned in the VAM-31 listing. Plus, it is correct date position for VAM-31 with closed 9 and chip in first 8 between loops.

More photos. Has everything the VAM-31 has including the die scratch above the boomerang clash. Ear is slightly doubled inside, though very tough to pick up.

Is all the reverse doubling just unlistable hub doubling?

You might want to read the pinned post at the top of the forum.

Also, please post JPEG images rather than PNG images.

Sure thing. I’ve looked at the top post a dozen times if I’ve looked at it once. In my post I wrote “hub” doubling when I meant machine or ejection doubling. Just a foggy brained night typo. The machine doubling is so extensive that I questioned it. I’m getting much better at distinguishing one from the other, but I keep repeating the same visual error. I understand the impatience of seasoned vammers who maintain the hobby and this site, and who cannot appreciate the work they do?

Be cautious of lighting and the effects that has on your pictures
Some of those you took are a lighting effect also.
Good Luck
