Discovery 2017 by Daniel Carr
(Privately made) (Normal Date, Medium O Mint Mark) (180) I- R-
A die struck counterfeit coin with rounded design where meets field.
The obverse die matches 1894-O VNA-A
But the reverse die does not match ANY previously-reported privately-made coin.
But neither coin is related to the known Micro O or medium O mint mark counterfeit series. So no VAM # assigned since not related. May be later this coin and 1900-O of Brady Johnson will eventually be shown to be part of one of these known series.
