Discovery September, 2010 by Brian Raines.<br />Revised 2017, 11/2018<br />
'''1E (revised) III2 I - C3a (Acid Treated Obverse & Reverse Dies) (183) I-3 R-5'''<br />
'''Obverse III2 I -''' Over polished lower hair with small slightly smooth tops and rough edges from acid treatment at designer's initial M, two gaps about 7 and lower right hair vee to fill in missing hair from die over polishing. Raised dots on Liberty head from rusted die. (Same die as VAM-94 but earlier die state before re-basining. Weakly struck stars and date so 9 doesn't show slight doubling.)<br />
'''1.''' LVA wouldn't list over polished reverse saying it was too minor.<br />
'''2.''' Reverse top arrowhead broken and top olive leave misshaped due to over polish. Tail feathers shallow but complete.<br />
'''3.''' Same Obverse die as [[1879-S VAM-94]] but earlier die state.<br />
'''4.''' Same Reverse die as [[1879-S VAM-92]] but earlier die state.<br />
