Got this in a lot of three coins from a coin dealer. Cost me 162Ç for the three.

They were advertises as "vz-stgl", which translates approximately to "high AU to low MS".

What do you think?

Yes, I noticed that long die crack mark. No idea. I will try to find out though.

Seems to be the same VAM as this:

The spike at her lip is also present at my coin (seen trough a magnifying glass).

Die crack is long, I like it. I'm in at MS62+ for this, sorry I can't quite squeeze to 63. The cut under 'P' looks deep as does the one at the base of the jaw.

the long hit through the hair held me back to 62,
As far as the VAM I believe it's this one. http://ec2-13-58-222-16.us-east-2.c...87-P_VAM-13A

Along with the die cracks there is a clash event with letter transfer and the Eagle has a beard and antlers...

dave 700x, I belive you are right about the VAM. Is that super-desirable or does it not change the value of the coin much?

Anyway thank you & all the others for your answers!

luster across cheek is broken.
on all the high points of the devices I dont see any signs of circulation
the strike is a little weak for the year
the hit in the hair is fairly deep. if it wasnt for this I think the coin would grade MS63+. I cant get a coin to 64 with broken luster but on the other hand Its way better than most 62's

I'm at MS63
