1878-P VAM-130B Spike above eyelid, semi-circular die gouges wing

Discovered by C. Logan McKechnie September 2005. Revision February 2007 by John Roberts
130B II 1 B2a (Semi-circular gouges on wing) (194) I-2 R-5
Obverse II 1 - Short spike above eyelid front. Slight doubling on chin front. Same die as VAM-185A .
Reverse B2a - Two nearly semi-circular die gouges on eagle's left wing near neck-wing junction. Overpolished die at eagle's right wing-leg junction.

Comments:
1. The former listing for VAM 130B was a duplicate of VAM 131A.
2. EDS is 2-sided PL. LDS is lightly 2-sided clashed (no letter transfer). Very scarce variety, rare in uncirculated grades!
