1921-D VAM-1U Die Gouge E & Wreath Bow

Discovered by Jim Hart, June 2001
This coin is a WOW! Morgan VAM.
1U (revised) IV 1 · D2a (Die Gouge E & Wreath Bow) (189) I-2 R-6
Reverse D2a– Diagonal die gouge up from E in ONE thru wreath bow to #1 tail feather.
Fine die scratches in various directions on over polished tail feathers around eagle's right leg and between eagle's left wing and body.
Die marker - Die gouge E.
1- The VAM 1U has the longest die gouge of any 1921-D variety. It runs as a huge diagonal die gouge from the E in ONE through the wreath bow to the first tail feather on the right. This long damaged area can be seen by tilting the coin slightly so the raised gouge can be seen popping up out of the field. Seldom encountered, this is one of the longer die gouges in the Morgan series, making it prized by VAM collectors. As evidenced by the condition census, a few high quality examples of this VAM have surfaced but this is a killer coin.
