1886-P VAM-6 High 6

Discovered by Leroy Van Allen, July 1967. Revised 2010
6 (revised) III2 6 - C3a (High 6) (188) I-2 R-3
Obverse III2 6 - 6 in date punched higher than normal. Date in normal lateral position. Die 1 - Die marker - Fine die crack between neck point and first left star on early and late die states.
Reverse C3a - Die 1 - Die marker - Roughness and lines in neck - wing gap.
Comments:
1- The date is listed as a high 6, but is actually slanted upward, with each digit successively higher than the one to its left. The lateral position is the left side of normal.
Comments on Coin:

  • This is a multiple clashed die.
  • The date is set in the normal position with the 6 set high.
  • A die crack is seen running through the Phyygian Cap and into the field ending at the bottom middle part of the second "U" in Pluribus.
  • Collaboration by:rtm/rmg/lae2.
