Discovered by John Robert in August 2007 on a coin from C. Logan McKechnie.

Obverse III2 35 – Entire date doubled. 1 doubled at top right of vertical shaft. First 8 doubled strongly at top inside and bottom outside of lower loop. Second 8 doubled slightly at lower loop. 0 doubled slightly at lower left inside.
Reverse C3c – Normal die of C3 type with very large centered mint mark tilted left.

Comments:
1. This obverse shared with VAM-56 and VAM-83.
This reverse shared with VAM-3, VAM-6, VAM-17, VAM-22, VAM-29, VAM-31, VAM-53, VAM-57, VAM-58, VAM-65, VAM-73, VAM-80, VAM-81, VAM-83,VAM-86, VAM-96.
2. Since VAM numbers are assigned by die classification, the shared reverses above are all C3c, very large S centered mint mark tilted left. All may not be the exact same die, but all fit the reverse die classification.
