Obverse III21 - Clashed die with partial incuse t of Trust from reverse showing in right hair vee of lower hair edge for late clashed dies with seven clashes.
Reverse C3a– Multi Clashed die with full raised E below eagle’s tail feathers on left side and partial B & R next to E from obverse LIBERTY.
Comments: The Multi clashed VAM-1A2 is the "7 clash type" the grade of this coin will determine it would qualify as a V-1A2. While the "T" clash in theory is present with all 7 clashed type, standard prodigal is that the letter transfer is visible. On lower grade coins this clash may be worn away or hidden by circulation. While Leroy tagged this as a discovery, its been around for some time. The double clashed type is most common and the Multi or 7 clashed type seems to fall second in rarity in MS grades. The Single clashed VAM--1A1 is by far rarer in any grade and to date of this discovery only 1 MS example of the single clashed type is known in PCGS plastic.
