Never assume someone isn't going to accept your VERY LOW ball offer. He accepted it 2 hours after I snagged #1

I never figured this guy was going to come down that much, but a deal is a deal I guess, so I have 2 of these.

Looks like a touch of handling on the cheek. I'd be at MS-64, a strong MS-64, for this one.

I'd say MS-65. Agree with a very late die state of VAM-6, with significant die sinking and die cracks.

I'll go with MS-65, but could see why someone would say MS-64.

reverse strike a tad weak for this year but nice eye appeal. luster broken across cheek and the contact marks on the obverse may keep this one in the MS64 box

Just came today and I ran it under the microscope to see if I could confirm VAM-6

It looks like a strong argument.

What do you guys think?

Using

http://ec2-13-58-222-16.us-east-2.c...1886-P_VAM-6

as a reference, I shot these.



Roughness Wing-Neck Gap




The reverse has a curious bump in the die under the A of DOLLAR.




"Railroad tracks" clashing from wing to "n"




Die crack date with die sinking near denticles. This specific die crack from the 1 to the point of the neck is a key diagnostic:




Die break star with closeup of die sinking:




Clash mark at neck with no visible transferred lettering:




Reverse die sinking near denticles:




Die break through cap and in to the field:

I wasn't even supposed to get this coin, if you look back up, I had already purchased an identical coin, but I saw this guy had this listed at $365 and I shot him an offer of $210 and never thought he would take it. I didn't hear anything so I got the other one. Then he sent an invoice lol, now I have 2

I'll have to go back and look for the total.
