1881-S repunched mm?

Post by madbirder » Thu Jan 27, 2022 7:15 pm

I've got an 1881-S with what looks like a repunched mm but I can't find it on the reverse guide. Any help would be appreciated. Looks like a serif in the upper loop left with a couple of polishing lines and possible surface doubling but there is PMD there as well. Date looks doubled at least the 881 and there are a few chips inside the loops of the first 8 at 11 O'clock upper and two O'clock lower loop. Thanks in advance.

I'm far from an expert, but for what it is worth the bottom right inside of loops, of the 8s both
look tripled to me, on yours.
I saw the vam 58 has tripled 8's, but I'm not sure if the mint mark looks the same as yours

Thanks for the help but it doesn't fit. MM is wrong and I don't have the die scratch at the wing.

I do have engraved leaves but it still doesn't fit with any of the ones listed.

I also have one V on the second one but not two.

No repunched mint mark. There's doubling on the surface of the first 8, though.

Looks like the obverse of VAM-39. It's got the faint dash under the second eight and the second 8 has a flat base as opposed to rounded like the first 8. First 1 has the notch under the upper crossbar. First 8 has the doubling on bottom right inside loop, surface of upper right loop. The one has the single V near the bottom but the problem is the reverse mm looks like its doubled which mine is not. I can clearly see it on the mm photo but not on the full coin photo on the VAM-39 page. VAM-39 is the only dash 8 with the dash close to the base of the second 8. Any thoughts would be great, I've been racking my brain with this one.
