1921 P Morgan VAM 3A1B/3A1C

Post by RogerRock » Tue Jun 14, 2022 7:01 pm

I have a 1921 P VAM 3A1B with die gouge from tail feathers. The die scratch from left wreath to left star is weak and incomplete. There is pitting from first A (AMERICA) towards the rim. Coin is AU 58 White. Would you still call it VAM 3A1C ?

If it has the gouge from the tail it is either 3A1C, 3A2, 3A3 or 3A4.
When in doubt... don't.

Confused by the paper trail on these. This thread indicates no tail feather gouge on 3A1c.

The 3A1C attribution page heading very clearly says and shows that it has a gouge at the tailfeathers -- "1921-P VAM-3A1c Scribbling Die Scratches, Spiked Tail Feather, Die Gouges Stage 1"

The old thread was, as I recall, an embarrassing mess. But the attribution pages were cleaned up and are correct, as is this VSS sticker:
