1887-P VNA-19A
Collaboration by SD Members
OBVERSE ATTRIBUTES: The Date is set much further right than is normal and is slanted (Very Far Slanted Date). As a result of die polishing, the Ear is doubled at the right inside Wall. A die break is seen above the entire Phrygian Cap and has an elongated die break just before reaching the Cap Fold. That break continues through the Cap Fold exits into the Field and ends at the M in UNUM. A die break is also seen exiting the 4th Right Star with a very visible metal flow that runs to the Denticle below and continues through the gap between Denticles.
Obverse Markers: None.
REVERSE ATTRIBUTES: None.
Reverse Markers: None.
SPECIAL NOTE: VAMWorld's VAM-19A and VAM-19B MTP basic descriptions have been re-written to make clear that VAM-19A has a die break above the Phrygian Cap and a die break at the 4th Right Star. The VAM-19B has the die break above the Phrygian Cap, but does not have the die break at the 4th Right Star.
COMMENTS ON THIS COIN:
A) A number of die chips are seen along the route of the Obverse Stars. The most important die chips are located between the 7th Right Star and the E in the Obverse Motto, E PLURIBUS UNUM, and the die chip located to the right of the 1st Right Star.
B) Die cracks connect all 6 Right Stars and all 7 Left Stars are similarly connected. These cracks, which contain die chips, are thick and can be seen without a loupe.
C) Another important die crack is the one found running from under the Front Wheat Leaf, under the R in E PLURIBUS, and touches at the first U in E PLURIBUS. The crack continues into the cavity of the U and eventually makes its way to the Denticle above the left side of the U. It appears to me that that die crack is the Western portion of the die break found above the Phrygian Cap.
D) The Obverse shows the results of two separate clash events as two clash lines exit just below the joint of Lady Liberty's Jaw and Neck Line and run into the Field.
E) The Reverse also shows the results of the clash events as two clash lines are seen exiting the Eagle's Right Wing and heads in the direction of the n in the first word of the Reverse Motto, In God We Trust. One clash line reaches at least half way to the n and the other barely gets off the Wing.
F) This coin doesn't contain letter transfers that are sometimes produced when dies clash.
G) Clash marks are clearly seen under the Eagle's Neck.
H) Die cracks are seen on the Reverse as well; but not as bold as those seen on the Obverse. A crack is seen running from the F in STATES OF, crossing the wing, and through the letters AMERIC. A very weak die crack is seen exiting the letter E of ONE DOLLAR and through the letters DO.
The Obverse Clash Lines were created by the clashing of the Eagle's Right Wing. The Reverse Clash Lines were created by the clashing of Liberty's Neck Line.
