#Top1923-P VAM-1C Tail On "O"
Discovered by Richard Deters, April 1973. Revised 2009.
This coin is a Top 50 Peace Dollar VAM.
1C (revised) II 1 · B2a (Tail on O, Die Break Rear of Tiara Rays) I-4 R-6
Obverse II 1 - Short thin diagonal die break to right of last ray in Tiara. Shallow wide vertical die gouge thru bottom of S to rim in TRVST
Reverse B2a - Die break from lower part of O in DOLLAR extending diagonally down to left. Collar clash on rim below and right of LAR.
'Comments': Revision 2009: A specimen has been found with collar clashes on the rim below LAR of DOLLAR. This was not enough for Leroy to give a new number. So your 1C may have a collar clash in that area.
