Emission Sequence


  1. This VAM has a LOT going on...7/8 TF, clashed dies lettering, polished dies, "bearded" Lady Liberty... Examine a VAM-41-C & you see what VAM collecting is all about. This variety is last stage of the die state progression: 1878-P VAM-41, 1878-P VAM-41B, 1878-P VAM-41A, 1878-P VAM-41C. The suffixes are not in die progression order because of the times of discovery were not in order.

The strong obverse clash defines the 41C. This was the former late die stage of VAM 41A until 2004.
Here is the beard and the outstanding "In" clash:
