1879-S VAM-96

Discovery 2016
96(tentative) OBV lll2 1* B2i (PAF reverse)
Obverse lll2 1- Die marker - Polishing lines in RTY of Liberty. Tentative listing until examine better condition specimen.
Reverse B2i – R in trust not broken. Feather engraved between eagle’s right wing and leg. Die marker- Diagonal polishing line in middle of eagle’s left wing

1. My notes- has die scratches in RTY and lower Hair above 7 not matching 43,50,51,52,or 67. It has taken this long to find 1 specimen of this die and finding a nicer one is next to impossible.
2. This reverse die was used on VAM-52, VAM-67, VAM-43, VAM-50, and VAM-51.
