Hi all! This Peace dollar
is a recent acquisition of mine. When I originally got it I thought the orange peel was from a heavy overdip. Looking at the VAM
it appears this could be from a rusted obverse die. I believe I've narrowed it down to VAM
but a later die state than the plate coin because my coin has a die crack going across the E in LIBERTY that isn't present. The die markers appear to all be there, but the mark above the E is difficult to spot because of an unfortunate milk spot. I've taken pictures in the same locations as the plate coin pictures so you can compare.
Thank you all for the help!
