1890-S VAM-29 S/S Left Curved, Die Break Wing
Discovered by Mark Kleiman, December 2004. Revised 2016
This coin is a WOW! Morgan VAM.
29 (revised) III2 1 · C3r (S/S Left Curved, Die Break Wing) (190) I-3 R-6
Obverse III2 1- Normal dies.
Reverse C3r– Slightly later die state than VAM-2B die breaks wing and right wreath.
1. This EXACT reverse is shared with VAM-2,VAM-2A, VAM-2B. VAMs 2B and 29 are later die state reverses and have a die break across the eagles left wing.
2. Denticle chatter is marker for v29 obverse. VAM-2, 2A and 2B does not have this in any stage that I have found.(jth)
3. For similar break pattern that looks like an EDS without the RPM, see VAM-43.
