INTERESTING 1881 O

Post by bhinkle » Sun Dec 01, 2019 1:01 am

I saw the rim cud forming along the bottom, of this 1881 O and I couldn't find any
vams, with the rim cud fully formed.
I saw no vam die markers, but I wanted it anyhow.
I just received it today.
what do you think?
Thanks, Bert

It's not significant enough to have been mentioned when any of the varieties for 81-O were listed. Other features (mint mark, date, wing-neck gap) will be needed to attribute this one.

Thanks John,
I understood, about the insignificance of the 'forming' rim cud, along the bottom on the obv.
That is the only reason I bought it, because I liked that and I thought it was interesting,
I have not seen an 1881 O, with a 'forming die cud', before.
I said that I could see no other die markers for a vam.
I tried to make that clear.
There is no clashing or doubling.
Here are some other pictures, of the areas, that I looked at.
Thanks, Bert

I classify this type of thing as "rim crumbling" rather than a CUD, even if it technically can be classified as a CUD(s)..

The pretty significant polishing around the eagle's head is interesting in its own right.
Neat coin; thanks for posting.
When in doubt... don't.

There's an 83o with very similar lines in the same general area. Not sure which VAM it is off the top of my head but I do come across it with a modicum of regularity..

Thank you EVERYONE,
I think it is closest to a vam 30 John, Thanks
Here is a better picture of the polishing lines, around the eagle's head, Dennis.
With the " crumbling rim", Thanks Chris on the obv, which is the reason I bought it,
when the seller came down to $30, plus $3 S&H.
Thanks again, Bert
