VAM 17 Dies

VAM 17 - Dash Under 8 is a pairing of Obverse Die 9 with Reverse Die a.  The use of Obverse Die 9 is unique and only in this pairing.  We have thirty-two examples of a VAM 17 so there is an abundance of material to examine.  None of the coins show any signs of die cracks since the dash would have worn away quickly, probably before die cracks and breaks could appear.


This example of VAM 17 is an MS 65 and certainly a good representative of this VAM.  The dash is there, but like many other examples it is faint.



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