I have two slabbed 1883-Os (one in a PCGS OGH @ MS64, the other in a newer PCGS holder @ MS63).
They both exhibit the same pattern of OBV and REV clashes, although the OGH MS64 seems to be a later progression and more pronounced.
The OGH MS64 shows:
- OBV: Clashes at the lips and a clash from the neck (at below the chin/neck connection). Can’t really get a shot of it, but a cylinder-like feature lined up against the neckline a bit below the clash at the neck. Lots of pitting.
REV: Clash extending up from the left wing to the “n”, what appears to be a partial E in the left top stalk, and a wing-like clash on the right top stalk. Some pitting.
- OBV: Clash from the neck (at below the chin/neck connection). No clashes at the lips.
REV: Faint clash extending up from the left wing to the “n”, nothing in the left top stalk (no E) but there is a wing-like clash on the right top stalk.
These don't look like the 1C or 1F families. Some similarity to 21A, but no clashed M above God on the REV. Not 22A either bummer (no E under tail feathers, no clashing above bonnet on OBV, etc.) nor a 36A. Not a 44A either (neck clash in the wrong spot).
I am only going to post pictures of the OGH MS64.
I’m sorry if this has been asked before (I read an early post that this is possibly the original die pair and considered VAM-1?). Am I missing something in the 1C1/2, etc.?
Thanks again for the help
