Die Crack Characteristics

Obverse Die 36 is associated with VAM 55 and its derivative VAM 55A.  These are discovery VAMs, but in actuality we discovered VAM 55A and VAM 55 is assumed at this point.  Our one coin, the discovery coin, is not great for this analysis and is only an AU 50.  If there were minor cracks they have long since worn off this coin.



Our one example does not show any signs of obverse die cracks.
