Discovered by Bill Deterline, July 1978. Revised 2008.
20 (revised) III2 17 · C3e (Doubled Date, S Tilted Far Left) (182) I-2 R-3
Obverse III2 17– Doubled date. Slightly doubled 1 at top right side of vertical shaft. Left 8 doubled right outside of lower loop. Second 8 doubled on left inside and strongly on right outside of upper loop. 2 doubled strongly at top and right outside of upper loop. Very slightly doubled top of Phrygian cap.
Reverse C3e - IV S mint mark tilted far to left and shifted slightly left. One of the farthest S tilts known for the Morgan series.
- This obverse shared with VAM 20 and VAM 27.
- There is a horizontal bar across the upper half of the mint mark
- Doubling on the date can be very hard to see due to ejection doubling common on 1882-S
