1879-S VAM-37 S/S Line

Discovered by Martin Field, January 1981. Revised 2008.
37 (revised) III2 1 ∙ C3l (S/S Line) (184) I-2 R-4
Obverse III2 1 – Raised metal at top inside of 8 lower loop. Polishing lines and raised metal below 18.
Reverse C3l – Medium IV S mint mark doubled with long line on right side of upper loop opening and a curved line on right side of lower loop opening. S mint mark centered and upright.

Comments:
1. On later die states, the polishing lines below the 8 will not be noticeable, but in the right light, a raised area will be apparent. Also, the chip seen just below the 8 at 6:30 will be present, but weak.
