1923-S VAM-1BP Thin T Top, Over Polished Field RTY
Discovery July, 2010 Discovered by C. Logan McKechnie [May, in fact, be the same listing as the VAM 1G]
1BP II 1 · B2a (Die Break Between Right Rays) I-3 R-6
Obverse II 1 - Die file lines at RTY in attempt to remove die crack going thru hair bun over thru Y and to rim. This resulted in over polishing with bulge in field between T & Y and thin top bar of T.
LVA Plate Photos:
The crack extends into the bun and the polishing attempts are clearly illustrated by the R and outside the bun fold.
The two rays to the left of the R also are polished down on the right sides.
The reverse has a long die crack from the lower olive leaves up and thru the A. It is not yet a wide break but on the discovery piece,
small chips are seen along the path of the break.
