1886 P VAM 1F/6A question

Post by demetri » Mon Aug 02, 2021 3:19 am

I need help seeing the ST clash. There seems to be just a line going thru not a letter???

So 1886-P VAM-6A High 6, Clashed Obverse no makes no mention of an ST clash if that is what this is???
Other than that it seems to match the 6A but there are surface impressions on reverse that maybe could be the multiple clash on the VAM 1C but I'm guessing not. Can any one shed some light on the ST clash........

"I need help seeing the ST clash. There seems to be just a line going thru not a letter???"
As you mentioned 6A "makes no mention of an ST clash". It is listed for an n clash. So you shouldn't expect to see an st clash. Why do you think there should be an st clash? I do not have your coin in hand, and from the photos that you show, I have no reason to think of an st clash.
Do you see the listed n clash?


This is not a 1C. It doesn't have the 3+2 Clashed Reverse that the 1C is listed for. Also, your coin can't be related to VAM-1C because your date location is different.

I realize that, I said it matches pretty close to 6A but I missed adding a picture of the marks I mentioned,
sorry

I think they are just surface marks or maybe related to clash, your thoughts

I dont think there should be one, the same slight N clash is present as shown for the 1F but there is a mark where the ST would be i one one were listed. So Im asking what this IS????

I think your right, maybe I'm looking too high for ST, I guess a crack or part of the wing

The mark in the reverse field next to the right wreath is a clash mark. It is from the back of the cap on the obverse.
Reading Attribution 101 may help you. Look at the overlays and the section on Clashing.
