1886-P VAM-20 Double Date

Discovered by Chuck Wishon. February 1998.
This coin is a Hot 50 Morgan VAM.
20 III2 19 C3a (Doubled Date) (189) I-4 R-7
Obverse III2 19 - Entire date strongly doubled. 1 doubled as horizontal line well below base. First 8 slightly doubled below lower loop. Second 8 doubled at bottom inside of lower loop. 6 doubled as curved line on left side of lower loop.
Reverse C3a - Normal die

Comments:
1. Strongly repunched date after the original date punch was, apparently, crooked. Fortunately for VAM specialists, this mistake was followed up by failing to completely polish of the error.
