Comments:
1. 1887-O VAM-5 Doubled Stars. On this coin, the obverse stars are doubled toward the rim. This feature is subtle and unless you are looking specifically for the doubling, it is hard to notice.
2. Rim cud was assigned VAM-5A in 2009.

The variety is frequently misattributed, even in certified holders. Care must be taken with any purported example. Several die markers will positively confirm a correct attribution.
