1883-O VAM-17A Low 3, O Tilted Left, Tilted Field

Discovered by Michael Ash, March 2006.
17A III28 · C3l (Low 3, O Tilted Left, Tilted Field) (181) I-2 R-6
Obverse III28– Die crack thru top of PLURIBUS and another thru wheat leaves up to bottom of U and down to cap field with tilted field below it to top of cap.
Reverse C3a– Thin and shallow die scratch at top of eagle’s right wing.

COMMENTS:
1. I do not believe this is a VAM-17 daughter as the date does not match the plated one in the VAM book nor does it have an especially low 3. It seems to match the VAM-19 obverse (III[2]9).

The mintmark is set left with a slight left tilt. This agrees with the C[3]l reverse of VAM-17. However, the VAM book lists the reverse of VAM-19 as C[3]1. Probably a typo with the "one" supposed to be an "ell". This would more accurately be designated VAM-19A.
