VAM:  23 - Doubled Profile, O Set Left

VSS Number: 012056


Comments:  This coin lacks a lot of eye appeal because of what looks like carbon spots on the obverse.  The appearance is almost like the coin was shot with a shotgun with little holes everywhere.  In all likelihood the sawdust used to clean the planchets retained a little sawdust and it became discolored over time.


That said, the wear is very light and the fields retain a little mint luster, so the grade is about right.  Because this is a circulated coin there is a little dirt clinging to the profile and the doubled profile needs magnification to see.  The mint mark set left is easily seen, but the offset is slight.
