1900 O VAM help

Post by ShamShield » Fri May 06, 2022 1:48 am

I have been trying to place the VAM on this coin and it feel like it hits a few. I see some 29A, 35A, and 52. There is a die crack in the date, O looks high (possible slight left) and there is what looks like a crack going from the left reverse star continously through right wing tip and then again through MERIC. I tried to get it all. Any VAM suggestions?

Might check out VAM 21D1, possibly early die state, not full cracks / break - which could revert it back to being VAM 21

It's a VAM 21 family coin, no doubt. May be a little early for a 21D1. Checkout VAM 21E and see if the denticle impressions are still there under the Eagle's tail feathers. I can't tell exactly from your photo, but it's likely.

I don't see the denticles under the tail. But I believe you are all right about it being 21 family.
