- The photo in the 2014 supplement is incorrect. From Leroy, 3/2019: "88 O VAM 42 photo of O m/m tilted rt in 2014 Suppl was for original 42 listing of Bill Latour coin in June 2014 that was later determined to be same as 1B1 in Nov 2014 & eliminated. Subsequent 42 listing in Dec 2014 was for different coin but photo of 42 listed in June was never corrected or erased. Don't have photo of correct 88 O VAM 42 m/m since was just listed as C3d O Set very High like VAM 8 listing. Likely different die."
- Discovery Coin photos shown on this page are the December 2014 piece.
