1878-P VAM-131B Die Scratch Thru RT
1. The typically encountered V131B shows fairly extensive reverse die cracking especially at TED-wing-S; however, the cracking does not displace the field so it does not warrant classification as a sub-variety per LVA. EDS specimens do exist for the variety with one attributed by ANACS as VAM-131B EDS AU 55. The EDS coin does NOT exhibit the reverse die cracking and the coin has reflective surfaces on both sides.
2. This obverse shared with VAM 195A and VAM 210A
