VAM 42 Dies

VAM 42 - Doubled Left 8, Die Gouge DO is a pairing of Obverse Die 28 with Reverse Die a.  Reverse Die a is used in many VAM pairings.  Obverse Die 28 is only used with VAM 42.  As of April 2021 we only have two examples of VAM 42 for examination.  These are both Almost Uncirculated 58 condition.


Neither of our examples show any die cracks, but on AU and below grade coins that is not unusual as light cracks wear away quickly.  The distinctive die gouge on the reverse distinguishes this VAM without die cracks.  This die gouged reverse is shared with VAM 14 - Doubled First 8, Die Gouge DO.


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