Sorry, I misunderstood. Yes, this particular VAM is all about the obverse die state.

Definitely fingerprints but that is an awesome coin for what you paid. Where did you find that for under $20?
Just got this little guy in the mail. Very flashy and I love the bright blue rims.
Thankful for PCGS's database of TrueViews, I wouldn't have bought this coin with what looks like a reverse scratch above the "F" if I wasn't able to instantly see the same mark on about half of the proofs from this year and know it was just a small die crack.
I wonder how early on the die cracked. This one is a cameo which (correct me if I'm wrong) were usually only the first so many struck back then right? PCGS has only graded about 40 in CAM or DCAM and about half have the crack so I wonder if it cracked after only striking a few dozen.\
Edit: Also just found the same mark on a lot of the business strikes from 1868.
Two coins I’m happy to add to my type set.
Ultra cool CircCam Maine Half!!!
my first two enhanced finish in my collection.
I’ve been wanting and searching for one exactly like that for probably a couple of years now. It was an “insta-buy” when I saw it!
I think that nickel obverse design is awful, but with that finish the coin doesn’t look so bad.
Driving by had stop and pick something
Is that this year's NAD? I don't remember seeing that reverse before.
no. 2017. there no enhanced for NAD for this year
This was an eBay listing. I received a $25 PayPal credit because my wife signed up for this vitamin/protein shake promotion. The seller accepted my offer of $42. So with the shipping charge added, along with the credit, it ended up costing me $19.85. So, the actual price wasn’t less than $20. It just cost me less than $20. Heck, she was going to sign up for that promotion anyway, so I might as well have the free bucks!
The most recent addition to my 7070.
Just got these back from NGC.
Coin show pick ups from last Sunday
I went to the Gulf Coast Coin Show in Biloxi, Miss., yesterday and brought these three home.
