Discovery coins are always a smile in a box.

Just a comment however, the 1902-O VAM-45 Die #14 is a duplicate of the VAM-45 Die #1 EDS. The die pair is difficult to ID because it is very plain jane. It fools me sometimes. Besides all the stuff Leroy mentions, there is a very slight vertical die scratch just under Liberty's eyebrow.

This is a stunning photograph of the V45 obverse. Was this taken with your new lighting?

This is a "striking" photograph of the V45 obverse. Was this taken with your new lighting?

Congratulations! Loren
Thanks all for the feedback.
Loren....no, the lights I got didn't work out. They were PAR30 bulbs, cri90+. They pin pointed the light too much for my setup and I couldn't get good overall light spread. I'll keep experimenting.....

I guess there is no interest in resolving the VAM-45 Die Pair #1 and Die Pair #14 listings? The VAM-45 Die Pair #8 was also listed by Leroy, but was shown to be a duplicate of Die Pair #1 and hence delisted. Looks to me like the Die Pair #14 is the same thing, a duplicate.

If there is interest, PM me.

Okay, I will punt first. Here is the official listing of the 1902-O VAM-45 Die Pair #1 from October, 2009. In order, my photo of the mint mark, the VAM Plate that matches your coin at the cap fold junction, the die scratch below eagle's talon, and the listing from Leroy. Let me know if you have any questions.

Yeah, looks like 45.1 and 45.14 are the same.

Alan Scott emailed LVA on the die 14. He agreed that it was a dupe of die 1 and will remove it from his list. The VAM listing has been updated.
