1878-S VAM-74 Engraved Wing Feather, Broken R

Discovered by Calvin Cherry, July 2002. Revised 2005
74(revised) II 1 · B2w (Engraved Wing Feather, Broken R) (181) I-3 R-3
Obverse II 1– Die marker: Diagonal die polishing line at back of eye socket.
Reverse B2w– R completely broken to form Tiust. Latest die state with very over polished reverse.

1. The Reverse Die B2w was used for VAMs 35, 93, 19 (A,B) and 74 (A) I believe in that progression ~tbconcrete
2-The die polishing line at the back of the eye socket is plain to see.
