1. Has strongly dbld reverse of VAM 2 and matches photos in VAM book & David Close book Top 50 Peace Dollars. Not VAM 6 reverse which has much weaker dblg pictured in 2004 VAM Supplement. Must have been two obverse dies paired with VAM 2 reverse. This coin must have been first one since dbld reverse is so clear. Then when unlisted die breaks occurred on obverse, die had to be changed to die with markers pictured in 2009 VAM Supplement. So revised VAM 2 listing to include 2 obverse dies.
