Have you seen this major clash before?

1887-P VAM 12A Alligator Eye.

Every marker is there on this NGC slabbed and attributed coin. However, I cannot find any reference to this major neck clash.

Have you seen this before?

I'm guessing you're talking about the struck thru grease area on the neck itself. Unrelated to any sort of clashing and not part of any particular variety. A minor mint error that's a coincidence.

The distinction between error and variety can be tricky with some pieces. This is particularly true when both are present.
