Emission sequence involving VAM 1

1 III2 1 ∙ C3a (Normal die) (176) I-1 R-2
Obverse III2 1 - Normal die of III2 type.
Reverse C3a - Normal die of C3 type with tall oval O mint mark, centered and upright.


  1. Since VAM numbers are assigned by die classification, and not just by die pairing, multiple die pairings may exist.
  2. One die pair called VAM 1 has the same reverse as VAM 19, but a normal obverse.
  3. Five other obverses are seen with the VAM 1 reverse that shows the pitting at the wing-neck gap. The emission sequence is VAM 24.2, 52, 66, 1, 19, and 68.
