Acquiring an 1887 with a clashed E is considered a landmark event by most variety specialists, (as written by Jeff Oxman), clashed reverse varieties tend to be coins struck late in the life of the dies, as represented here with this Hot 50 Variety, clashed E die variety represents one of the hottest areas of VAM collecting! This VAM is on just about everybody's hit list.
