1887-P VAM-1K Erosion Band 18
Discovered by Scott Hamilton, September 2010.
1K III2 1 - C3a (Erosion Band 18) (?) I-2 R-6
Obverse III2 1 - Die wear lines at periphery with unusual diagonal erosion band between 18.
1. There is an example known without the erosion band 18,but remember TDITD BY:MYSTERIO.
2. UPDATE jan/15: I just came across another VEDS of the vam 1k without the erosion band at 18 , everything matches,die scratches at liberty,date position,rev die gouge at wing-neck gap,etc , I believe these early birds are rare and very hard to find.
