1885 O VAM 24

Post by ShamShield » Sat Mar 11, 2023 3:21 am

I got this VAM 24 and looked it over. The reverse has a cool triple MM and, hidden berry from the doubling 2nd batch left side, and some of the best tripling I've seen since collecting Morgans (which hasnt been too long lol) and just wanted to share!

Pretty sure the experts will call this machine doubling. The hidden berry is really hidden to me because I'm sorry to say I don't see it. :shock: Not really seeing the other 24 PUPs to comment if this is the variety although it's not a poor looking coin (as most of the 85Os can be stunning).

Here were the PUPs I used to determine the VAM. I had to look up machine doubling and it makes me enjoy this coin more now that it may be the only one! The berry is a result of that doubling I used the arrow in this picture to where it looks like a hidden (extra) berry to me but it could be overenthuasiam.
