1892-S VAM-2 Double Date
Discovered by A. George Mallis, July 1965.
This coin is a Top 100 Morgan VAM.
2 III2 2 - C3a (Doubled Date) (190) I-4 R-5
Obverse III2 2 - All the numerals of the date are doubled. The top right of the 8 is significantly doubled.
Reverse C3a - Mint mark centered and upright.
1. Since VAM numbers are assigned by die classification, and not just by die pairing, multiple die pairings may exist. DO NOT DEPEND ON THE DATE CRACK. This is on SOME VAM-2 but also on ALL 1892-S VAM-7 examples. VAM-7 shares the obverse with VAM-2 but with some minor repolishing. The mint mark differentiates the two fairly easily.
