Discovered by John Roberts, August 2005. Revised 2010
2A (revised) III21 · C4b (O Tilted Left, Clashed Obverse G ) (181) I-3 R-5
Obverse III21– Clashed die with partial G from God of reverse next to Liberty head neck. Same clashed G die as VAM 28A but later die state than VAM 28A or VAM 32. May have rim cud between B and U.
Reverse C4b– Slight doubling of top two leaf clusters in left wreath. Same die as VAM 6. Die Marker: Polishing lines in wreath bow.
1. The VAM 2A has a heavily polished reverse. Heavy polishing lines all over reverse The VAM 2A does not have a polishing line under LLAR, which is a prime pick up point for the VAM 28A and no doubling of OF or Trust.
2. The BAR O was removed from the listing of the VAM-2A in 2010 by Leroy. The reference to the BAR O in the VAM Title was a typo. The VAM-2A and VAM-2 are completely different die marriages. The BAR O is now the new VAM-45, as of 2010.
