1880 P.......VAM-43

Post by Prider358 » Thu Feb 17, 2022 4:04 pm

Hi everyone, I think I've attributed the coin correctly. On the bottom of the neck, is it Delamination ? Also, on the Rev on the wing's and breast it looks all spotty, does that mean a rusted Die was used ? Thanks all and all feedback always appreciated.

Yes. It looks just like mine. PCGS 64 with a VSS sticker.

Hi blh74, thanks for your feedback, does your coin have that mark on the neck? And does your reverse look like a rusted die was used?

Mine has a small crater about the size of the M directly above the M about a mm. Don`t see any rust on the reverse. Has all the other PUP`s.

I believe what you see on the neck is PMD, but you're correct on the VAM-43 attribution.

Here's a couple of pictures of my PCGS64 showing a clear neck:

Hope these help. You've got a nice coin.

I'm thinking PMD as well. I think mine is correctly attributed and it has no such neck.

what about struck through grease? 1880 v32a, 1901o v25a, and others are famous for struck through grease on the lower neck.

I do not think that is PMD. I have seen it before and there is no sign of PMD on the ones I have seen.
