1878-P VAM-41B
Collaboration by SD Members and VAMWorld Vetted
OBVERSE ATTRIBUTES:
A die gouge line can be seen between the Fold of the Phyrgian Cap and the Cotton Leaf immediately above the both Cotton Bolls. This is a clashed die with a partial incused n of In from the Reverse showing next to Liberty's Neck Line. This is a later die state of VAM-41, but was reported later than the VAM-41A. Consequently, the suffix letters of this series do not follow the die's life stage.
REVERSE ATTRIBUTES:
The VAM-41B is generally the same as the VAM-41, except that it is clashed and no polishing was attempted at the end of the Tail Feathers. Consequently, the VAM-41B shows a 7/7 Tail Feather feature. The VAM-41A and 41C received polishing at the end of the Tail Feathers, which resulted in a 4/7 Tail Feather feature.
COMMENTS ON THIS COIN:
A) The Obverse clash line is seen a bit below the Jaw and Neck joint with an incused n of In from the Reverse is seen along the Neck Line.
B) The coin's Fourth Right Star is broken.
C) Liberty's nostril is missing.
D) The Reverse clash line runs from the Eagle's Right Wing to just right of the n of In.
E) Both the Left and Right Wreath Cluster also show the effect of the clash event.
F) A limb-like feature can be seen beneath the Olive Branch and positioned between the Olive and the Olive Branch Leaves.
The Obverse clash line was caused by the clashing of the Eagle's Right Wing and the Reverse clash line was caused by the clashing of Liberty's Neck Line. The clash marks seen on Left Wreath Clusters #1 and #2 were created by the clashing of Liberty's Lips and Chin. The bat wing feature seen between the Eagle's Left Wing and Right Wreath Cluster #1 was produced by the clashing of back bottom part of the Phyrgian Cap (Cap Vee area).
NOTE: This coin's heavy circulation has affected the coin's appearance, as the Devices and Field are severely worn. And, I wouldn't rule out that it received a cleaning at some point during its lifetime of service to the Public.
