1878 8TF VAM 2A?

Post by ShamShield » Wed Aug 24, 2022 4:11 pm

When looking at the overall picture I think I see the clashing to make this a 2A. Opinions/Observations welcome! :popcorn:

The picture of the engraved feathers confirms at least it's VAM 2. It is clashed, so it might be VAM 2A, but the pictures aren't sharp enough to see the specified letter transfer.

I apologize I'm not the best photographer lol but here are a few more and I will make another post with a few more.

Top photo is of the left leaves reverse

Next is "t" in trust which looks like it has a wide field around it

Next is the bottom of the tailfeathers I'm not sure what that perfect rectangle is between them and the bow

Next is left wing (eagle's right) clashing

Finally is the field between the left wing and the leaves

1st photo looks like leaves clashed with the bonnet (I can count 3)

4th picture is the field above motto

5th is some clashing at the curve of the hair (best one I could do)

And finally, more of the leaved clashed and I don't see anything in the obverse field as far as lettering

I can see the clashed 't' in one of your pictures, so it would be VAM 2A.
