1897-P VAM-1B Die Scratches Wing
1B III2 1 - C3a (Die Scratches Wing) (190) I-2 R-5
Obverse III2 1 - Some fine scribbling scratches near back of Liberty's jaw.
Reverse C3a - Five vertical die scratches in middle of eagle's right wing. Also shows some small die gouges a little stronger than usual in the space between the eagle's left wing and neck.
Comments: (1)Since VAM numbers are assigned by die classification, and not just by die pairing, multiple die pairings may exist.
(2)Vertical die scratches start at the 6th right outer feather and is most noticable at the 7th feather.
