1884-O VAMs

Mintage 9,730,000
Proof Mintage None
Dies Used 60 pairs
Rarity in PL 4/10 (less common)
Die Study none

One of the common dates, 1884-O has a few interesting VAMs included in the popular lists, including several repunched mint marks (VAMs 6, 10, and 25), but perhaps the most unique is the 2020 discovery VAM 56A. Two different mint mark styles were used for this year, with only a few reverse dies showing the round O. Several varieties are known for segments of overlapping reeding, resulting from an improperly made collar die. This date is typically found with nice luster, but can suffer from a poor strike, although fully struck specimens are available. PL and DMPL specimens are available, but they are not as common as some dates.
