gouge on obv of 78-S VAM-82

Post by lewisr2 » Mon Mar 28, 2022 8:53 pm

I was checking out a 78-S VAM-82 and noticed a gouge on the obverse.
The gouge starts at the lower edge of the ribbon cap, goes to the left; looks like it goes under a small hair curl then stops at the next hair curl.
Another very short part of the gouge is way over to the left almost to Liberty’s neck.
The photo points out the location of the gouge.
This is certainly not an attribute that is needed to identify a V-82; there are plenty of other attributes. However, it is interesting.
Would someone please add this photo to the V-82 listing.
Thanks.
