Comments:

  • This coin is PCGS Certified as MS63
  • The Date is positioned further left than is normal.
  • The digits of the Date are doubled as described.
  • The Obverse Die Marker is present.
  • This coin is clashed slightly. Small wing clash mark on Liberty's neck line, beginnings of a clash line on the Eagle's right wing, and faint Hair Vee clash between Eagle's left wing and Right Wreath Cluster 1 and 2.
  • Collaboration by:rtm/rmg/lae2.

This is the LDS of the VAM-4A as the 7 doesn't show a vertical spike above the left serif that is present on the Early Die State of that VAM, and die file lines can be seen between the "O" of ONE and "U" of UNITED. The file lines are clearly seen between the "O" and "U", but difficult to see from that point on.
