1885-P VAM-6 Doubled Date
Discovered by Maurice Dubreuil, November 1974.
6 (revised) III2 6 - C3a (Doubled Date) (189) I-4 R-5
Obverse III2 6 - All numerals in date doubled at very top with large shift. Tops of 85 showing in denticles as raised curved bar in single denticle space below right edge of 1 and straight raised bar below left 8.
Reverse C3a - Very slightly doubled lower edges of arrow feathers.
- VAM 6 has 85 in denticles on some specimens.
- Do not confuse with VAM 15, which does not have 85 in denticles and second 8 is not doubled
- VAM 6 does have a C3d Reverse not C3a as listed
- Date Doubling is far more dramatic on the VAM 6 than the VAM 15
