1888-O VAM-14 High Near Date

Discovered by Leroy Van Allen, June 1980.
14 III2 9 - C3a (High Near Date) (181) I-2 R-3
Obverse III2 9 - Date set high and further left than normal.

Comments:
1. The VAM book shows the date close to the very near position. There may be different die pairs that loosely meet the VAM 14 specification, but a die study of 1888-O will probably result in those being assigned to a different VAM number.
2. One specimen with a date that does match the VAM book has a long, vertical die scratch from between AT in STATES, alongside the o of God, ending in front of the eagle's beak.

Date clearly left of normal position. This is a match for the VAM 14 picture shown in the VAM book. (JB)
