VAM 19 Dies

VAM 19 - Doubled 1--1 & Profile is a pairing of Obverse Die 11 with Reverse Die a.  This Reverse Die is almost featureless except for the small die cracks near the rim, a common die failure region.  As of May 2021 we have fourteen examples of VAM 19 for examination.  This VAM is readily available in mint state with many if not most examples stretching for a higher grade.  The fields are usually reflective unless the coin was toned or had a little moisture damage.  Our examples range from AU 58 to many grades ranging from Almost Uncirculated 50 through Mint State 64+.


All of our coins show signs of faint obverse die cracks, and the hair curls would indicate that this is an early use of the die before any repolishing.  None of our examples show reverse die cracks but we believe that this is the same physical die as the one used for VAMs 1B1 and 1B2.


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