VAM 1B1 Dies

VAM 1B1 - Die Gouge in DOL & Denticle Impressions above DOL is a pairing of Obverse Die 1 with Reverse Die a.  Reverse Die a with the die gouge in DOL of DOLLAR is seen on five VAMs: 1B1, 1B2, 18, 43, and 49.  As of January 2018 we have eight examples of VAM 1B1 for examination, so the VAM is neither common or rare.  We have examples that range from Almost Uncirculated 53 through Mint State 63.


Only one of our coins shows any signs of an obverse die crack and it is minor, but there.  All of our examples show some reverse die cracks but this coin represents our latest state.


Die cracks are shown in green and die breaks in red.  Click on any image for a larger view.
