1886-P VAM 1 VNA Die Progression Project
NOTE - VAM-1F was reassigned and became VAM-6A, & VAM-1G was reassigned and became VAM-6B.
Order for each is VAM-6, VAM-1F and VAM-1 VNA.
The crack through the Eagle's left wing from the middle serif of the 'F' to just above the bottom serif of the 'A' is consistent across all six coins, although in the later die state it has extended, deepened, and widened.

What follows is an image of the date position for the VAM 1-F LDS coin in this study.
The numbers in front of the coin discriptions is the sequence numbers I have assigned to the coins in this study. Lower numbers (1) are coins at the beginning of the study and higher numbers (99) at the end. Gaps between the sequence numbers and at the beginning and end allow additional coins to be inserted as discovered. Larger gaps indicate that a group of coins may be missing.
