When some PUP's are missing?

Please contribute your thoughts on the subject of missing PUP's on a coin-

Example- I Have a 1884 Narrow O. In looking though, the closest I have found is a 19A....

It has the rust spots, wheat leaf gouge, date set with doubling and the vertical die break on the leaf cluster.

It does not have the Die Gouge by the leg or the radial die crack.

So Early 32A or enough for a 19A, what path would you take?

In general, when some of the later stage listing features aren't present, carefully read the earlier stage listing. As in read them. In this case, the VAM 19 listing mentions the pitting on the neck. VAM 32A has been eliminated, so there's no such thing as an EDS VAM 32A any more. If your verbal description is accurate, you have a VAM 19.

Pictures would help

Thanks for the advise, and the humor.

I read as you suggested, the Vam 19 fits the bill. I guess since I saw half of the die crack of the 19A and the 19 has no mention of the crack, I really wasn't sure what pushes it to the 19A.

I am still working on my photo skills, consistent lighting is my stumbling point which seems to be as important as the zoom. We will send testers up when we think we are dialed in.

Again thanks and stay safe.
