@ShamShield's question about a 78-S that possibly turned out to be a VAM-16 (http://www.vamworld.com/forum/viewtopic ... 348#p56348) got me to looking at another coin I have. Definitely not a 16, but shares the reverse... therefore a 20 or a 28.

Forehead and cotton leaf PUPs are there indicating a slot in for a VAM-28... but mine clealy has a doubled LIBERTY not mentioned. Is it possible this is the case and simply not mentioned?

Yeah, VAM 28. Take a look at the VAM 8 page. That doubling is plated by Van Allen

Yup, see that now and blindingly obvious! Oops.

Wondering if the guide page - http://ec2-13-58-222-16.us-east-2.compu ... _Varieties - can be amended to move the VAM-28 from the "4th Star Broken, r in Trust Unbroken , See Attribution Guide # 3 Under Construction" section to the "4th Star Broken, r in trust Unbroken with Doubled Liberty, See Attribution Guide # 4" section to help avoid confusion like I had.

Thanks again,
