1885 Struggle

Post by JASONKFLO » Sat Feb 26, 2022 8:55 pm

I feel like this is some variation of A Vam 26 but it has a dash under the 2nd 8.
Coin looks really nice but unfortunately appears to have some minor hairlines from a wipe possibly so maybe sending her back but I am curious if anyone has any ideas from what I am able to post . ( The light on my magnification went out so it was a struggle to get pics)

The date looks off though and the crack which is hard to see goes from A Short ways up from the bottom of the neck to about the middle of the 1 there is a crack from the one to the 8 about half way up from where the crack hits the one to the top of the one.
On the reverse the Right star is either tripled or quadrupled but hard to see, Same with the bottom of CA ( There is a Crack from the R through the middle of the star.

Does have a dash under the second 8 of the date

Hoping I can get a nudge in the right Direction before I decide to return it or keep it.

Try VAM 1F.
I may not be the best, but I do not know anyone better.

I see a far date. That star really speaks. Vam 7 is as close as I can get. Check out that neck gap. GL

I do not think its this one , though it looks close from a distance many of the key points are not there when zoming in plus the date is farther to the right on mine.

On this the A in America is not quadrupled on the top and there is nothing at the wing gap.

Hard to tell from my phone but I do believe
It's a V7

They come clashed and unclashed

Thanks all it looks closest to 7 for sure but it doesn’t have the mark between the wing gap . I’m not sure if that’s a deal breaker for vam 7 or not. Otherwise it seems to mostly match up
