1882-CC VAM-2B2 Doubled 882, Faint Counter Clash Lip

A Sub-Stage of VAM-2B created by Leroy Van Allen in May 2010 and revised in August 2014.
This coin is a Hit List 40 Morgan VAM.
2B2(revised) III2 2- C3b (Doubled 882, Faint Counter Clash Lip) (177) I-2 R-5
Obverse III2 2 - .2nd light clashing episode with very faint clashed n tick at neck and faint counter clash line in front of upper lip. Sliver of diagonal bar of 1 top MPD below left 8 has disappeared from die wear. Dbld clash lines at bottom inside of left wreath on upper leaf cluster from second clash.

Comments:
1. When the faint 2nd clash that defines 2B2 is polished, coins become VAM-2C1.
2. Since VAM-2B2 coins must have been clashed twice but not polished, the portion of the VAM-2 Pairing Sequence that qualifies as 2B2 is quite small and has no DMPL or PL examples.
3. There is the very slightest, hardly-worth-mentioning remaining piece of the very bottom of the original VAM-2 MPD just above the denticle under the left side of the first "8", but there are no lines remaining beneath the first two Right Stars.
4. There is a chip in the top of the "G" of the Reverse Motto. This chip is first seen on a late phase of VAM-2B1 so is not indicative of 2B2, but coins without this chip cannot be 2B2.
5. Contrary to previous 2B2 page information, VAM-2B2 is not rotated.

2B2's clash line on the Eagle's Right Wing extends to the Motto.
The shorter vertical line on the right is all that remains of a similar line created by the clash that defines VAM-2A.

The next two photos allow for a comparison of the upper Left Wreath clash marks as seen on VAM-2B1 (Top) and those of 2B2 (Below).

Note how the 2B2 clash gave a blunted look to the crisp scalloped outer edge of the lower clash mark and filled the gap between the previous clash mark and the top of the inside leaf .
