VAM 26 Dies

VAM 26 - Doubled 18 is a pairing of Obverse Die 15 with Reverse Die a.  Obverse Die 15 is associated with VAMs 26, 26A, and 51.  VAM 26 has proven to be quite common and as of November 2021 we have twenty-two examples ranging from EF45 to MS64.  Fifteen of those are mint state coins, so a lot of material to work with.


The obverse die appears to be repolished and we have several proof-like examples, with others very nearly proof-like.  There is a lot of lost detail in the hair at the neck point.  The reverse die does not appear to have been repolished except on the proof-like examples and shows die cracks consistent with VAM 26.



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