1884-O VAM-51

Post by madbirder » Thu Sep 16, 2021 12:42 pm

I've got an 1884-O which I believe is a VAM-51 as it is the only listing for a round O doubled ear but some of the features don't jibe with the photos on the vam page. It has a doubled date, eye, profile, leaves and a few letters but these might not be enough to have been listed. It's also got more cracks than an earthquake pavement. Several through the hair, through the face, neck, stars, cap, in front of the forehead, through the forehead, both wings. Die seemed like it was on it's last legs. The date seems to be in the right position for the vam but the mm looks tilted slightly right on the vam page where mine is centered and upright. Just wondering if this would just be an LDS of this VAM or something else.

I have 2 V 51 but they do not match yours. Yours looks familiar.
