Hello - I am a major coin collector and seeking advice on what I think is the rarest coin error I have seen, the ear has been miss stuck along with the spitting eagle - the coin is BU/UNC in original Hoard case. I have been told VAM have not seen this coin with the ear error for the date and told the coin is worth 6 figures. Any thoughts or advice before PCGS grade the coin for me. Thanks

If there are no varieties listed, except the spitting eagle, it may well be an error. You may have to send it in the get verified.

I can't see much with your low quality photos.

Could you show a photo of the entire GSA case, close ups of the ear and eagle's head, and maybe sharper images? The spitting eagle is an 1891-CC variety, so it would be pretty unusual to find it on an 1884-CC.

Couple of close ups Zurie - The coin will be sent for grading - a numismatic specialist said the coin is high grade and no errors of this type have ever been recorded and he said it would by very rare, especially with 2 errors and most likley the rarest coin for the year from the hoard

The pictures are still too blurry, but it certainly looks like a spitting eagle. I can't tell much about the ear. Before sending it to PCGS, you should find out from them whether they would attribute a new variety. The first step might be getting high quality photos and posting it on VAMWorld to get some opinions.

Thank you again for your valued advise Zurie, I do recon you will see this coin as a new rarity and another attribute with VAM, we have had a lot of interest in the coin - we'll organise some professional images and send them to VAM, I'll keep you updated with the progress

Better photos would be great to try and save you some money and consternation later. Really good photos can allow folks to try and help you before you spend a lot of time and energy on this.

Hello VAMsforMoney, thank you for your friendly advice, yes I totally agree the images are not the best.
We have spoken to a coin dealer who is going to examine and image the coin before we seek VAM advice for a new attribute. He said the obverse ear is very unusual and none have been recorded and also the reverse clear die chip hasn't been noted on the 1884 CC as a variety (Spitting Eagle) he has advised the coin will have a high premium value when it fully researched. We feel his opinion will be worth while, although the fees are high we know this should be worthwhile. we haven't used this forum before and finding it very helpful so far. We will keep you up to date with new images and any news from VAM - Thank you VAMsforMoney
