These full-coin shots are of what I will call the two discovery coins. The uncirculated specimen (ANACS 62) is the official discovery coin as designated by Leroy Van Allen. The worn specimen (PCGS 3) was the first coin upon which the far date was noticed together with the distinctive reverse. Due to wear, however, it could not be used to verify the existence of a new variety. Nevertheless, it was "discovered" before the uncirculated coin. Therefore, for the purposes of VAM history, both coins have claims to the "discovery coin" title.

1891-CC VAM-7

Discovery September 2013 by a cast of several (John Baumgart, Nick Capuano, John Roberts, Gary Voyles)
This coin is a Top 100 variety
7 III2 5 - C3c (Spitting Eagle, Far Date) (?) I-3 R-6
Obverse III2 5 - Date set right of normal position. Heavy die polishing lines in and around Liberty's ear. Raised spike at top of E in LIBERTY.
Reverse C3c - CC mint mark tilted left. Left C strongly doubled at top outside and lower left inside. Right C slightly doubled at top outside. die gouge shows below eagle's beak as spitting eagle. Later die state than VAM 3, with gouge slightly polished down and inside of 1st C devoid of stray lines.
Comments:
1- While the VAM 3 is easily the most common 91-CC, initial estimates of the VAM 7 show that it is somewhat scarce in comparison.
2- Can be found in mis-attributed VAM-3 slabs from all TPG companies
Threads:
1- [[1]]
