1887-P VAM-13
Collaboration by: SD Members
OBVERSE FEATURES:
Doubling is seen on the first four Right Stars and the first two Left Stars. The first two Right Stars have more pronounced doubling than do the first two Left Stars. In all cases, the Stars are doubled at the bottom. Additionally, there is slight doubling at the top of the 7 in the Date, on the Designer’s Initial and Liberty's lower hair. The top of the 7 is seen in the denticles under the second 8. It's seen as a curved bar in the denticle space below the second 8 and short vertical bar in the denticle space immediately to the left.
REVERSE FEATURES:
Doubling is seen in STATES OF AMERICA in the Legend as well as on the Right Star. Also, some outer edges of the leaves on Right Wreath Cluster #3 are doubled. All the doubling face toward the Rim.
COMMENTS ON POSTED COIN:
All of the Obverse and Reverse Features can be see on this coin. The following additional features are noted:
A) This coin shows the result of a slight Obverse clashing with a clash line that runs from the Neck Line into the field.
B) The clash event left its marks on Liberty's Lip to Chin area, as well as at the back bottom part of the Phrygian Cap.
C) A slight Reverse clash line can be seen running from the Eagle's Right Wing toward, but not quite reaching, the n in In.
D) The clash event also left marks under the Eagle's Chin at the Neck Line and at the back upper part of the Eagle's Head.
E) Both the Left and Right Wreath Clusters #1 show the result of the clash event.
I don't believe that this clash event produced any letter transfers. If there had been letter transfers, the coin would have been a VAM-13A. Without the transfers, it is a VAM-13.
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 around the Eagle's Head and Neck were caused by the clashing of Liberty's Hair Curls. The clash mark between Liberty's Lip and Chin was caused by the clashing of the top inward leaf edges of Left Wreath Cluster #2 and the marks seen at the back bottom part of the Phrygian Cap were caused by the clashing of inward leaf edges of Right Wreath Cluster #1. 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 Liberty's Cap Vee area.
