1. 1882-O VAM-7 O over O. The VAM-7 is a tremendous repunched mintmark with the remnants of a second O strongly visible below the true mint mark. There is also evidence of the underlying mint mark inside the top of the O as well. This coin can be found in nice mint-state examples. High grades are tougher and hard to find in 64 and above. Prooflike specimens are highly prized.
2. This reverse shared with VAM-12
