1878 S Need help with Vam. Eye spike and TIUST

Post by Jimbob87 » Thu May 14, 2020 6:30 pm

I looked it up and it says from a while ago on this site to send in for help. No real doubling except a little in Liberty to the left(lower part to the right). Thanks.

Thanks. No die cracks or scratches that I see. Broken point on star on right, 3rd from top. It's difficult to get the eye spike and liberty doubling to show up but it is there.

My friend Lewis nailed it. The die chip below the chin/hairline is a 100% ID marker. One can almost tell what VAM it is by the amount of R in IGWT.
