1881-S NEW VAM 85.

Post by TVejr » Sat Mar 20, 2021 11:17 am

In January I sent John at VSS a few coins for attribution. John felt this coin might be a new variety and suggested I send it to Mr. Van Allen for further examination. Glad I did.

Congrats on your new DC. Do you need help setting up the new VAM page?

I will check my v43 next week to see if this is a 2nd obverse use of v43 or a dupe.

John should get all the credit. He discovered it, not me.

VAM 43 specifies III2 1 obverse. The reverses seem to match if I look at the VAM book and other pictures on the wiki. The question might be one of does VAM 43 as specified exist? The pictures on the wiki seem to be of the VAM 85 obverse.

I sent mine thinking it was a new Vam too back in August. Leroy rejected my coin and said it was matching v43. I guess Leroy forgot about it already. If anything v43 should be revised and v85 eliminated. My coin is in pcgs 64 and matched all the markers noted for this v85.
