1884-P VAM-2A

1886-O VAM-1A

1887-P VAM-1B

1888-O VAM-1A

1889-O VAM-1A (LDS)

1891-O VAM-1A

1. 1891-O VAM-1A (The fullest "E" is noteworthy on this Top 100 VAM)

2. 1888-O VAM-1A (This one is very distinctive if you've seen a few of this VAM in person. Perhaps on this quiz one might mix this one up with the 89-O clashed "E", which also does not show the full lower bar of the "E".)

3. 1887-P VAM-1B (not many people have seen one of these in real life)

4. 1880-P VAM-39A

5. 1878-P VAM-84A (you can see at the top of the photo that this is a Reverse of '78 coin)

6. 1889-O VAM-1A LDS (notice the double clashing under the top bar of the "E")

7. 1884-P VAM-2A

8. 1886-O VAM-1A (for this VAM, the lower bar of the "E" gets lost "behind the wreath" because of die position when the clash occurred and that the clash cannot reach deeply into the incuse devices on the die, as with clashed lettering appearing as if "under" the other devices.)

9. Which of the nine Clashed "E" VAMs listed at the beginning of the quiz did not appear above:

1878-P VAM-84A
1880-P VAM-39A
1883-O VAM-36A (5 of the clashed VAMs on the list are "O" mint marks. 3 of the photos show the "O" mintmark, but none are the oval "O" of 1883, which helps with the process of elimination. It would not be unreasonable to have guessed this one for any of the partial "E" VAMs shown above.)
1884-P VAM-2A
1886-O VAM-1A
1887-P VAM-1B
1888-O VAM-1A
1889-O VAM-1A (LDS)
1891-O VAM-1A

10. Which of the nine Clashed "E" VAM years/mints listed at the beginning of the quiz has two other clashed "E" VAMs?

1878-P
1880-P
1883-O (the reverse die from the 83-O VAM-36A is also found on the 1883-O VAM-22A,)
1884-P
1886-O
1887-P
1888-O
1889-O (VAM-20A and VAM-23A. The VAM-23A was delisted later as a double listing.)
1891-O (this answer is acceptable if you made it assuming the VAM-1A1, 1A2, and 3A)
