1889-O VAM-13I Far Date, Polished Eye & Forehead

Discovery November 2013 (John Baumgart and Nick Capuano)
III2 - C3a (Far Date, Polished Eye & Forehead) (181) I-2 R-5
Obverse III28- Fine Vertical polishing lines on eye, front of eye and forehead. Very slight doubling of forehead edge and Phrygian cap top.

1. 89 O PCGS 17132 - New VAM 13 I. Has far date of VAM 13. Very slight doublig of forehead and Phrygian cap top edges. Normally like to see doubling on cap top stronger before listing and also doubling of profile longer than just forehead. But did mention in description and took photo of forehead doubling.
2. It wasn't mentioned, but there is unusual fine vertical polishing lines on eye, front of eye and on forehead. Made this basis of sub-variety listing.
