1. Great example of a re-punched date, where the original date was punched at an angle. '1' is doubled below the upper crossbar, '9' is strongly doubled at the top, and the '0' is doubled above where a curved line is still visible. Probably the most interesting variety in 1890-S VAMs. Some specimens show two diagonal polishing lines under Liberty's ear.
