VAM-15 maybe? Hard to see your date position but looks like at least your 1 and 8 are doubled.

Do you have wider shots?

Somehow I knew when I ask 4 help I would get it pretty quickly. I did - VAM9.0 (the "classic VAM9). Feeling sorta thick at the moment! THANKS

VAM-15 says these lines are unique to VAM-15 in LIBERTY...

Can someone help clarify? Are these comments like the 86-P VAM-19 ones that just get entered in by a member?

V9 is it

V15 is a normal date
The lines in liberty are unique to that obverse.

There used be a great photo on the page
But that got destroyed down during the switch.

Just trying to follow along and learn from his coin...

So it's the same obverse die with a different date punched on it?

So same working hub made both dies and they punched the date in a different place? Same obverse with different date placement?
