1890-S shared obverse

Post by madbirder » Fri Jan 28, 2022 4:54 pm

Does anyone know if VAM-1B shares an obverse with one of the other VAMs? I've got all the markers from the Obverse 1-B but my reverse doesn't have a single crack in it. Thanks.

Thought I'd post a few pics of the reverse as I'm still having trouble finding the reverse on the VAM page.

And a few more with one particularly long field polishing line.

Check VAM 6. There appear to be a few die pairs identified for it.

Thanks messydesk, I scrutinized that one pretty good and nothing I've got matches. I've only found the obverse of 1B that matches all the cracks in the neck, chin, hair and forehead plus the polishing lines in the hair. That's why I was curious if the reverse die of 1B got replaced after it began to fail and crack up and made a new die pair.

It wouldn't surprise me if it did. This is the kind of thing that is discovered all the time when doing a die study.

Thanks for the reply. So where do I go from here. I can't seem to find the reverse on the pages at all so would that be a new reverse? If there is a new die pair do I need to submit that. Still at bit green at all this. :D
