VAM 2B Dies

VAM 2B - O/O Low, Pitted N-ED is a pairing of Obverse Die 1 with Reverse Die b.  Reverse Die b is used only in pairings for VAM 2 and subsidiary VAMs 2A and 2B.  As of December 2017 we have only two examples of VAM 2B for examination, so unlike VAMs 2 and 2A, this VAM is less common.  This coin is a Mint State 62, and our other example is a Mint State 61.  We believe that the progression of die cracks shows that VAM 2B actually is the earliest die state of the VAM 2, 2A, and 2B grouping even though it was discovered last.


VAM 2B shows only minor die cracks and they are in the same region and follow the same pattern as VAMs 2 and 2A.


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