General discussion board about VAMs, but no buy/sell offers

The old VAM-58A page is still there. All you have to do is click on the view history tab and select August 13.
The old 58A was listed as a clashed n. There were several thoughts floating around the old VW discussion board of what VAM the 58A obverse matched. When I found a VAM-70 (single clashed obverse), I checked it against the old 58A (double clashed obverse).It was clear that it was the same obverse and reverse. I also knew that the obverse letter transfer was the old I clash and not the listed n clash. Also the 3AR was the same obv and rev.
Going one step further, I recognized the old 70 obverse as the same as the 24B2.
So I packed up all the coins and sent them to LVA. This lead to a few eliminations including 58A being incorporated into 58. Now a finger feed gouge comes along and so now there is a 58A again. Same, but different.
Hopefully this helps. If you have any questions, please ask.
Originally, 58A was listed as a clashed n. It had a double clashed obverse and a single clashed reverse.
VAM-24B had a clashed I. The 24B obverse was then placed with a different reverse. That new die pair had a clashed I obverse, no clash on the reverse, and was listed as VAM-70. When 70 clashed again, it created a double clashed obverse and a single clashed reverse. The clash on the reverse was located at the n. So when it was listed as a new VAM, it was listed as VAM-58A for an n clash.
For years on the old VW, there was speculation of the relationship 58A had with other VAMs.
