1900-o/cc VAM-7A

Post by madbirder » Fri Mar 18, 2022 6:36 pm

Hi All, I picked this up yesterday and wanted to check with more experienced eyes if this is indeed a VAM-7A. The coin isn't in great shape but it was the first o/cc I've found so I picked it up. It seems to have all the pups for 7A but since it is rare I wanted to make sure I wasn't getting ahead of myself. Any opinions welcomed. Thanks.

Yes, 7A. Nice pick, hard to find in the wild.

Thanks, was really pleased to find that "in the wild" as VAMmers say. :D

It's easy to miss in circulated condition due to the small parts of the CC that are visible.

That's why I always carry a loupe when I head to a coin shop.

As a side note I noticed in the description on the VAM page that when talking about the chip over the 9 the description says 7 instead. Not sure if those who are reading can correct this. Not a major edit, in fact I didn't notice it till the second time of reading.
"This 7A has the characteristic die chip over the 7." :D

Well, maybe it's a "secret overdate" that happened during Mardi Gras?
