1879S Vam 54 question

Post by Jodemyer » Fri Sep 30, 2022 8:31 pm

I was reading the description of VAM 54 and it states it was revised to remove the die chips under the 18 of the date and added them to VAM 15. I have a VAM 54 I believe, all the obverse and reverse die markers are there but it has the die chips, although light under the 18. It also has light polishing lines over the reverse. So am I reading it correct or can they still be found with or without the chips? Thanks in advance...the doubling on the date matches 54 and not 15.

Thanks Vam-mysterio, I read it first before I posted and checked all the markers. The part at the beginning of the description says "VAM 54 is revised to eliminate die chips below 18 and added to VAM 15 description."
So since it started out with the revision I was not sure if the later statement of
" 1. Vam 54 is known with and without die chips at 18" was still valid.

The revision was made around 2010,
Before I started doing the 1879 s die study
And discovered that with and without chips
Especimens exist
