Yes - that is a no doubt WAM. Congratulations as this is the tough one to find.

Agree that would be a third confirmation pick-up, but it's not needed. The spacing of the A between the T in STATES provides positive identification by itself.

Too bad about the corrosion/toning and the big gash above LIBERTY. Still, definitely worthy of a 2x2 and does still carry a numismatic premium.

100%. Excellent WAM find. The FG are spaced correctly and confirm the AM spread. Closer pics would be nice, but I feel it is spot on.

Many thanks to everyone for your help.
I have one question, please answer if possible, how much will its price be if I offer it for sale, and I will offer it first to an expert. Thank you very much

Might check on ebay to see if any in this condition sold recently. Thanks, Doug.

My opinion on value - since you asked.

It's not worth a lot, primarily to its quite unappealing surfaces and distracting toning. The aforementioned gouges above and below LIBERTY might be construed as damage by some folks.

It is indeed a difficult to obtain variety - and its numismatic appeal will reside with a very small population of LMC variety collectors who seek to acquire this as a 'filler' coin until something better comes along.

ebay is a guide - but I say maybe $10 to $20 - total guess but my value judgement.

If this were a pristine gem MS65 or better fully red coin - then moon money.
