1886-O VAM-20 Double Ear

Discovered 2009.
20 III2 13-C3a (Double Ear) (181) I-2 R-5
Obverse III2 13- Ear slightly doubled at right inside. Date in normal lateral position.

Comments:
1. Since VAM numbers are assigned by die classification, and not just by die pairing, multiple die pairings may exist. 2. Leroy writes New VAM 20. Yes, has unlisted slightly dbld ear with date in normal lateral position. Vam 17 has doubled ear but with far date. O m/m very slightly set to left but still within normal tolerance of position guide on pg 116 in VAM book. There is a shadow outline at bottom of date digits between date and denticles from die sliding sideways into the denticles below date causing surface metal flow below date digits. Denticles above RIBUS aren't pushed in.
