1884-O VAM ID help?

Post by MrIheartempanadas » Tue Jul 09, 2019 1:40 am

I think I have an 1884-O VAM 15 on my hands. It’s difficult to see from just these provided photos, but it’s the best I can give at this current time. Anyone help me out on this? I’m still pretty new to this.

The mint mark and date positions look about right, but that's the most I can tell with the photos. If the inside of the ear and the inside of the mint mark match the pictures on the VAM 15 page, then that works for me.

Nice looking coin. Is that a 63?

The ICG holder was a 63 (I’ve since cracked it out) but it’d straight grade 63+ if not 64. The pictures don’t do it justice, but for a New Orleans coin the strike is really strong, and the fields/cheek pretty mark free.
