1886-P VAM-6 051416

Characteristics are described with a degree of granularity intended for die identification more so than for die classification. A characteristic may not span the entire die progression. Thus, not all characteristics may be present in any one coin.
OBVERSE ATTRIBUTES: The 6 in the Date is higher than the other digits. This was inially recorded as a High 6. However, it was later determined to actually be a Slanted Date. Markers: Early and later mintage specimens on this Variety contain a very fine die crack that runs from the Neck Point to the first Left Star.
REVERSE ATTRIBUTES: None. Markers: Roughness and die file lines are seen in the Wing-Neck Gap.

COMMENTS ON THIS COIN:

  • This coin has all of the attributes associated with the VAM-6. While this coin appears to be a VAM-6, my Page Heading notes this as a Variety Not Certified (VNC) as it has not been certified by the PCGS, NGC, or ANACS; however, it has been confirmed as a VAM-6 by the VSS.
  • This coin has experienced multiple clash events. Due to die wear, no letter transfer is visible. Because there is no n transfer at Liberty's Neck Line, this clashed specimen reverted to VAM-6.
  • Two Obverse Clash Lines can be seen exiting Liberty's Neck Line just below the joint of Liberty's Jaw and Neck. These lines were created by the clashing of the edge of the Eagle's Right Wing.
  • A die crack can be seen crossing the Phrygian Cap Fold and continuing into the Field below the letter S of the second word of the Obverse Motto, E PLURIBUS UNUM.
  • Two Reverse Clash Lines can be seen exiting the edge of the Eagle's Right Wing and connects to the n of the first word of the Reverse Motto, In God We Trust. These lines were created by the clashing of Liberty's Neck Line.
