VAM 43 Dies

VAM 43 - Doubled Left 8 & Phrygian Cap, Die Gouge DOL & denticle impressions is a pairing of Obverse Die 29 with Reverse Die a.  Reverse Die a with the die gouge in DOL of DOLLAR is seen on five VAMs: 1B1, 1B2, 18, 43, and 49.  As of January 2018 we have two examples of VAM 43 for examination, so the VAM is rare.  Our two coins are an Almost Uncirculated 53 and a Mint State 63.


Our mint state example shows minor die cracks on the obverse and reverse.  The cracks line up with the ones on others in this series, probably pointing to a single die in different states.


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