1889 P Doubled Ears

For your convenience, the known 1889-P doubled ear varieties are shown below. This is a work in progress, and we still need Cotton Boll images for all the Varieties listed. When completed, this page should help greatly with attribution, as pinpointing 1889-P doubled ear VAMs is a difficult task indeed. Although 40 89-P Doubled Ear varieties have been discovered as of 2013, only four are members of the Hot 50 Morgan VAMs: the 1889-P VAM-16, 1889-P VAM-18, 1889-P VAM 18a and 1889-P VAM-20.

Diagnostic - Two short die scratches in hair right of jaw-neck junction. .
They are above the two red dots shown here. In this series there are quite a few high 9's. The tip off for spotting this VAM is the date and lower hair all the way to the ear is quite void of polishing, almost pristine surfaces. Unusually clean for this series so a quick glance where the PUP's live placed it as a 57.
