LVA Comments:
1- Mr. Van Allen's letter to Mr. Emery on the discovery.
"Unlisted clashed ust at lower hair vee. Vertical clash line up from eagle's right wing goes between n & G. But is a strong line that likely produced clashed n away from liberty head neck. Unfortunately your circulated coin would have worn away the faint n- Maybe a uncirculated specimen would show it. Also could be clashed raised M above d-w but does not show on worn coin."
