1893-CC VAM-2 CC Tilted Right

Discovered by Melvin Carmichael, August 1951.
2 III2 1 - C3b (CC Tilted Right) I-2 R-3
Obverse III2 1- Some specimens show die chip in 3 on right side between loops.
Reverse C3b - Mint mark tilted to right

Comments:
1. Late die stage specimens are particularly desirable as these are believed to be among the very last coins struck at the Carson City Mint. Twelve branch mint proofs are reported and were struck from a strongly re-polished stage of this marriage.
2. vampicker- I have seen examples of the late die stage with the double clash polished down matching the "BMP" strikes that were clearly normal business strikes.

The specific obverse die may be further identified by several horizontal lines within
a gap in Liberty's hair directly behind her jaw. These are present on all stages of
this die including the branch mint proofs.

Late die stage examples of this marriage are identified by the presence of two
strong 'cap vee' clashmarks between the wreath bough and wing along with fine
cracks thru the letters of AMERICA as pictured. On the proof examples, the die
is polished to a mirror finish with just the tip of the 'vee' clashes remaining. The
cracks thru AMERICA are still visible. The proofs are thought to be the last coins
struck at the Carson City Mint.
