1887 O VAM 5b Doubled Stars, Cud, Die Break B

Post by Dirtdoctor » Tue Mar 22, 2022 4:11 pm

I have 2 of these. Neither graded, both show some old light cleaning; otherwise low AU. One has a larger cud, and the other smaller.

VAMWorld description for interest and rarity is I-5 R-7. I see no records of any having sold in any condition. One MS61 for sale on EBay at $1070 including shipping. They show in SSDC as around $75 and no premium over VAM 5 (I-5 R-5) which is more common.

Any better approximation or sales records that I am missing? I will attach pics of obverses and die crack - reverses are not inconsistent with obverse.

I bought a PCGS AU 55 3 years ago for $55.00 off of eBay

Wow. Not much of a premium at all. Still cool with the cud and the break, but seems out of sort with rarity and Top 100.

Thanks.
