1898-P VAM-1 Open 9
1 III2 1-C3a (Open 9) (189) I-1, R-2
Obverse III2-1 - Normal Die of III2 type with open 9
Reverse C3a - Normal die of C3 type.
1. Since VAM numbers are assigned by die classification, and not just by die pairing, multiple die pairings may exist.
2. The 'open 9' can really look 'closed' to the naked eye.--CLM
