Discovered by Ben Wengel, June 2008
63A III2 37 - C3b (Doubled Date, Die Gouge L) (188) I-2 R-5
Obverse III2 37 – Entire date is doubled. 1 doubled slightly below upper crossbar. First 8 doubled on surface at lower right outside of upper and lower loops and at top right inside of lower loop. Second 8 doubled at lower left of upper loop. 0 doubled at left and right outside at top and bottom.
Reverse C3b – Normal die of C3 type with very large centered and upright VI S mint mark. Die gouge above L in DOLLAR.
1. Later die state of VAM-63. There are other C3b reverses but I've only listed the shared reverse of 63A and 92 as they both have the die gouge above L in DOLLAR.
2. This obverse shared with VAM-63 and VAM-63A. This reverse shared with VAM-63A and VAM-92.
