1897-S VAM-13 Near Date, Doubled Leg, Spiked Lip, Gouge M

Discovered by Rickey Bailey, January 2011.
13 III2 6 - C3c (Near Date, Doubled Leg, Spiked Lip, Gouge M) (183) I-3 R-6
Obverse III2 6 - Tiny die gouge in front of lower lip. Horizontal die gouge thru designer's initial M. Slightly doubled profile of nose, lips, and chin.
Reverse C3c - Slightly doubled lower right including right side of eagle's left leg, bottom edge of both wings, bottom edge of lower arrowhead, left inside and right outside of wreath bow.

Comments:
1. Reverse C3c was assigned to VAM-8 high mint mark. Thus, VAM-13/13A should have been the assigned to the next reverse C3d.
2. There was talk back in 2011 or so to the rarity rating. June 2017 I looked at 590 Heritage Archived photos and found 75 VAM-13's, 25 of those being VAM-13A. RonH270
