I did just call this a VLDS and didn't split the listing. I don't recall my exact wording, but I think this is one I'd want to see with and without all the crack/break pattern to generate a distinct VAM stage listing
Pursuant to the current guidelines for new listings, I agree.
But that doesn't subtract from the present example being cool to look at
I also agree.

Way cool to see this dandy screw up !!!!
Just thinking how messed up Mint workers were way back 100+ yrs ago, for there to
be thousands of errors within one denomination. The lack of quality controls definately
led Morgan Dollars to forefront of Errors/ Vams as we know them today
I cant imagine what it was like to go to work everyday at various mints, then told to
try & fix certain errors by polishing out etc etc. Amazing, of which we vam nuts are all
thankful of these gazzilion screw ups ;LOL
Darn cool piece of history from the workers to the Equipt used at Mints, all still a mess.
We are so blessed it all happened during this 1878-1921 timeframe, as today would not be
possible, due to great equipt & quality controls.
