Catalog Number: 7128

Serial Number:  33176731

Grade: Mint State 63

VAM:  26 - Doubled 18

VSS Number:  010481


Comments:  The doubling on the first 8 is more obvious on the enlarged images than the doubling of the 1.  But when you compare other features on the VAM 26 page it becomes obvious that his is a VAM 26.


The toning on this coin might turn some collectors off, but for us it is an educational tool.  The state of toning on each side is different and worthy of a few words.  So take a look at the toned coin link to see out comments.


Speculative History

To us this coin has all of the earmarks of a bag toned coin, but with different exposure on the obverse and reverse.  Both sides also have the crescent shaped color bands associated with overlapping coins in a bag.


We also tend to think that it has a lot of moisture exposure, but not enough to make the color bands mottled.

Stages and Colors

On the obverse they do not run in a normal sequential pattern but contain powder blue, bright yellow, magenta, and burgundy.  All of these are indicative of bag toned coins.


Knowing that the obverse is bag toned then the reverse colors speak only to exposure.  There seems to have been more exposure on the left and upper left of the coin and it shows in the richness of the colors.  The spectrum seems to run from bright yellow, to magenta, to royal blue, to emerald green.  Then it picks up the richer burgundy, to deep teal, to plum.  If you want to include the rim, which may be black, then this coin almost runs the full gamut of colors for bag toned coins.
