LVA Comments:
1. The 1885 P proof has 2 different dies: VAM-31 and VAM-38 Proof listed, Dont know why two sets of proof dies were used in 85, "a rare coin
as only a 930 proof coins were struck". correct 179 reeding for proof. Interesting coin!
2. Submittal VAM's-2,10,11 and 13 were submitted with this coin for comparisons of the doubled 5 Top
