1878-P VAM 14.1A Doubled Eye Front, Clashed Obverse n

Discovery May 2003 by Mark Kimpton
14.1A I13•A1k (Doubled Eye Front, Clashed Obverse n) (188) I-2 R-5
Obverse I13– Die clash marks with faint partial incuse n of In from reverse next to Liberty head neck.

1. There is a late die state of the 14.1A that has a nice little die crack from the rim to the 5th star left. The 1st four links below shows said die crack quite well.To date, LVA has decided the crack is not significant enough to warrant a separate designation.Thread for the die crack: http://www.vamworld.wikispaces.com/share/view/80607103
2. Late die state is double clashed. It is not known if the small crack noted in Comment 1 occurred before or after or as a result of the second clash. The 3- Clashed version is available with some looking but is far less common than the single clashed example.
3. Known to have feed finger die scratches at eagle's right wing.

High grade, early die stages of this coin show the above to be die chips, not die gouges. [CLM, June 2013]
