1881-O VAM Not Assigned Varieties
I believe this may be a VAM-42 Obverse or a VAM-31 Obverse paired with a VAM-48 Reverse
since there no gouge on D O of dollar this could be the VAM-48
I believ this coin has a doubled 18 and minor legend doubleing on reverse so I call it a C3A WITH A NEW OBVERSE
However, looks can be deceiving. Leroy put the case to rest and described, "VAM-1. Surface roughness into coin around 81. Likely coin was struck thru some grease. Not die pitting which would be raised on coin."
This second 81-O specimen was submitted as having potential pitting around the date.
This is an unlisted "teardrops" variety. Leroy notes, "Tiny die chips at eye front are a little unusual being in a line but are way too small to be readily seen with the naked eye and list."
This is now a marker for VAM 9 and has been listed with the descriptor "Teardrops"
