VAM 52 Dies

VAM 52 - Doubled 18-1 is a pairing of Obverse Die 33 with a Reverse Die a.  As of June 2021 we have eight examples of VAM 52, and six of them are Mint State coins.  Of those six, two show die fatigue and the obverse cracks seen below. We know that these dies were used in the creation of a number of VAMs, so this may be the latest die use examples for VAM 52, but not the latest die usage.


Several VAM 52 coins we have located are below mint state, so obviously these made it into circulation in the New Orleans area.


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