Comments:
1. The 1878-P VAM-18 is an eight tailfeather variety. The 1878-P VAM-18, 1878-P VAM-19, and 1878-P VAM-20 all share the same obverse with dramatically doubled date. Each numeral is doubled to the right. LIB in LIBERTY are doubled to the left. Visit this page to see 1878-P VAM-19 vs VAM-20 On the reverse for the VAM-18, there is an extra berry on the top inside of the left wreath. OF is doubled down and to the right.
