1900P VAM-16A HOT 50

Post by Prider358 » Fri Oct 01, 2021 2:47 pm

Hi everyone, I'm going for VAM-24 because of the 'Alligator eye'. Like's like a bit of pitting around Eagle's head. All feedback always appreciated and thanks for looking.

Looks more like a VAM-16A to me. I have three VAM-24s and none show the pitting around the neck (like yours, and the 16A), have a much more pronounced alligator eye (yours looks more light 'light parallax'), the date is 2.5 denticles from the neck vee (versus the little over 2 and small change I see on yours), I don't see much doubling (especially of the arrow head(s) and you didn't post a picture of the quintupled stars on the obverse which are fun to see), and more.

Give that a try?

If so, this is a Hot 50 which is to be celebrated.

Thank you vampicker for your feedback and thank you Gary for attributing my coin correctly. The date position did throw me of course a bit thinking V24 or V11 but I was way of course. VAM 16A it is Gary.

Some more photo's. Thank you Gary again for your knowledgeable input. I know vampicker would also of known the correct VAM but wanted me to work a bit harder at attributing the coin correctly, which is ok but sometimes it's nice to have a bit of help as staring at a computer for a ling time ain't good for my old eye's. :lol:

Yeah, you took note of the pitting, then missed it in the titles for the individual pages. VAM 16A is not an official listing, so 'it's unofficial'
