Discovered by Maurice Dubreuil, November 1974. Revised 2018 by tmanhg
12 III2 5 C3a (Doubled 1-90) (190) I-2 R-5
Obverse III2 5 - Doubled 1-90 with 1 below upper serif. 9 at top outside and 0 strongly at top left outside as thick arc.

Reverse C3a-
Die 1 Die marker-Die polishing lines in wing neck gap.
Die 2 Die marker-Die polishing lines in wing neck gap.

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.
