'''LVA Note from a 2015 Submittal'''<br />
A very early die stage exists in proof-like that shows virtually no die cracks and no polish lines around olive branch/tail feathers. The best markers are the tiny die chips and subtle die cracks. Die cracks (visible only under 30x mag at an angle) in this stage start at TED of UNITED and continue STA of STATES. Very difficult stage to attribute properly.<br />
'''Comments:'''<br />
'''1-.''' Obverse: Over polishing of "LIB" of LIBERTY shows lack of definition and shows striations inside the letters. Due to over-polishing.<br />'''2-.''' Very little remains of the design inside Liberty's ear.<br />'''3-.''' There is a die chip on Liberty's cheek and Liberty's eyelid shows strong doubling.<br />Die chip on Liberty's cheek on the VAM-80 is higher than the chip on the cheek of [[1878-P VAM-79|VAM-79]].<br />'''4-.''' There are die chips on the eagles right wing in a couple places.<br />'''5-.''' There is a die crack that runs from "D" through "O" and past the "L" of DOLLAR<br />'''6-.'''
