1924 VAM 1D? 8B?

Post by DarksideVAM » Wed Jun 02, 2021 4:16 pm

Please let me know your thoughts on the coin in this image. Could this be 1D 1 or 2 or 8B? Sorry for the image quality. These are not my photos.

I'm not an expert, but I have a couple vam 8's around here somewhere.
I think I see the gouge in the eye, the diagonal lines running on the back of Liberty's
neck up to the hair and the diagonal clash under Liberty's jaw, above the W, in WE,
the tiny curved clash, above the A, in DOLLAR, between the rays for a vam 8B.
Do you have any close ups, of Liberty's forehead and between the top two rays,
on the top of eagles? Bert

Thank you. I don't have this one in hand yet. I'll post some better images when it arrives.

VAM 8C. The VAM 8B did not last long before the clash was polished out.

Thanks for the feedback. I agree with 8C in review. I saw what appeared to be a cashed E and went after it. It will be interesting to examine when it arrives.

Listing these in the order in which they were produced: VAM 8 > 8B > 8C > 8A > 8D. They are out of chronological order as the VAM 8A was listed before the die gouge in eye was recognized or the unpolished clash was discovered. Part of what makes VAM collecting fun!
