29B (revised) IV 19 - D2p (Doubled Obverse, Reverse Letters, Clashed Obverse Double I ) (189) I-2 R-5
Obverse IV19 - Clashed die with double partial incise of I of In from reverse showing next to Liberty head neck. Light vertical polishing lines in all fields , with couple heavy file lines at 5 & 6 right stars. Earlier die state than VAM-29A.
Reverse D2p - No die file lines. Earlier die state than VAM-29A.
1. New VAM 29B. Formerly VAM 1AG with die file lines at 5-6 rt stars. But Earliest die state with no die cracks on obv or rev. Rev has clear double vertical clash lines to I of In. Obv has faint double clash I bottom with light vertical polishing lines at neck and rt field. No Polishing lines on rev. Faint die crack below O of OF. This is initial die state of 1AG which is same dies as 29 & almost initial clash I state which would be without polishing lines at neck - but haven't seen one yet. No clear clashed s at hair vee, but polishing lines there may have erased it. So eliminated VAM-1AG which became 29B. Thanks for pointing that out!
