|Dies Used||3 pairs|
|Rarity in PL||8/10 (rare)|
1894 is one of the key dates of the series. While 3 die pairs are cataloged, only one, VAM 3, was used to make business strikes. Alterations of an inexpensive, circulated 1894-O can be detected by looking for the VAM 3 die markers. Prooflike coins are extremely rare.
