LVA just sent me a hand written note regarding a mystery 78-s Vam that perplexed many of us.
It was AQed Raw earlier this year. It has the engraved wing feather so thought it would be easy
To ID. After grading, knowing LVA was updating the 78-s guide, sent it in for LVA inspiration.
He wrote “the EWF at wing matches Vam 112 as does DBLD wheat leaf RT side. Two faint closely spaced polished lines RT side of rt cotton boll & Rev polishing line on eagles rt wing 6 feather from
Bottom.
Vam 112 was reported by Doug Binder in May 2013.” This is the second one found now resides in
A PCGS 63 holder

The blob was first that I noticed when I examined the coin. It's not clear from either the pictures or the text if it's on the discovery coin or not.

When It was raw, I saw the blob lower than usual on the breast., knew it was Not Vam 28, so knew it was something I’d never seen
Before.
