1927-S VAM-1B

Discovered by David Close.
1B (revised) II 1 · B2a (Die File Lines Reverse, Gouges Hair Bun) I-2 R-5
Obveerse II 1 - Several smooth top die gouges at top of hair bun. Slightly beveled field at hair front with slight seperation of first ray from hair.
Reverse B2a– Extensive die file and polishing lines in attempt to remove die clash marks.
Comments: Far more interesting than the listing indicates. Close examination reveals some impressive reengraving among other things.
