1900-O VAM-35A
Collaboration by: SD Members
OBVERSE FEATURES:
The Date is set further left than is normal with 900 doubled at the inside top. Additionally, the last 0 is doubled on the outside top. Die cracks run from the right side of the first Denticle to the left of the Bust Point and runs under 19 and into 00. This coin is a single Wing clash event with the Obverse clash line running from just below the joint between the Jaw and the Neckline and into the Field. A single counter clash running along Lady Liberty's Neckline can be seen. The clash event left a partial incused n of In on the Reverse, which is seen exiting the Neckline and entering the Field. There appears to be a counter clash running from the right bottom part of Liberty's nose to the outermost part of her upper lip. Doubling is seen on the right inside of the Ear and at the bottom of the Earlobe. A gouge is seen at the left end of the top bar of the I in PLURIBUS.
Obverse Markers:

  • Two raised dots can be seen at the hair edge above digits 00.

REVERSE FEATURES:
This VAM-35A shows a single clash line running from the Eagle's Right Wing to the bottom of the right side of the n in In. There appears to be a single counter clash just to the left side of the clash line at the Wing point. The Mint Mark is set high and tilted right. A die crack runs from the O in ONE to the top of the Left Star and continues along the top of UNITE of UNITED. Please see SPECIAL NOTE below about a feature that involves the E of UNITED. A die crack runs from the Rim above the right side of the M in AMERICA, proceeds through the letters ERI and disappears in the Field between the the letters I and C. Both Right and Left Wreath Clusters #1 and #2 show the results of the clash event.

COMMENTS ON THIS COIN:
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 that appear in Liberty's Nose to Chin area 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 back bottom part of the Phyrgian Cap (Cap Vee area).
SPECIAL NOTE: SPECIAL NOTE: The E in UNITED shows lines radiating from the interior of the E and into the Rim above D. What is interesting is that these lines do not appear on the raised portion of the E. I examined 36 archived non-attributed VAM-35As (single and double clashed) and did not see that feature on any of those coins; nor did I see that feature on any of the archived 1900-O Morgans that I reviewed.
I submitted this coin to Mr. Leroy Van Allen for his review. As a result, Mr. Van Allen notified me that he determined that a Revision in the VAM-35A MTP was warranted and that information on this feature will be included in the 2017 VAM Supplement. The Revision will note that, in some specimens, a band of parallel polishing lines appear in the area of the E and D in UNITED. Those lines run from the middle of the E to the Rim above the D.
