1921-P Peace VAM-3
1921-P Peace VAM-3 Ray through "L"
Discovered by Joe Lanzo, June 1999.
This coin is a Top 50 Peace Dollar VAM.
3 I 1 · Ac (Rays on Top of LL) I-4 R-7
Reverse Ac– Two rays strengthened by an engraver in vicinity of LL in DOLLAR. This resulted in ray over horizontal bar and right top tip of left L and over lower left tip on right L instead of normal letters over rays. (Master die has evidence of engraver’s touch up with five engraving lines on top tail feather, short engraving lines on lower serifs of E in ONE and LLAR in DOLLAR, top serifs of UNITE ST-TE F AMERI E U-I-U LLA, and long curved engraving line on top right of D in UNITED.)
1. One of the original rays in the high relief version of the Peace dollar was re-engraved so it passes through the first "L" in "DOLLAR" rather than under it.
