U.S. Navy Silver Medal
Fantastic Tripled Date!

    This fabulous U.S Navy Desert Storm medal is made of one ounce .999 pure silver and is 39 mm in diameter (larger than a silver dollar)!  It exhibits some of the nicest die tripling that I've ever seen on a coin or medal.  The tripling shows particularly strong on the entire date on the reverse.  This tripling is super naked-eye stuff!

    As if this wasn't enough, the obverse displays a neat tripled die on much of UNITED STATES NAVY.   While strong doubling is most apparent, close observation will show that there is actually evidence of a very light early impression displayed as an almost complete and almost separate "A" that can be detected between the strongly doubled "A" and "T" of STATES and as a remnant of an extra upper loop of the final "S" of STATES.  Both of these tripled letters are extremely wide but too light to photograph to best advantage, (due to their lack of depth) but you can still see them if you are looking. You will be able to easily detect them on the actual coin by tilting it around in the light and looking in the areas noted above.  

    It appears that after the manufacturer created the three misaligned images on the NAVY obverse, he finally gave up on completing the die, as the full design appears incomplete; designs such as the flag and sails on the ship are floating in mid-air sans the mast. This is a magnificent treat for collectors of doubled dies and error collectors in general!  Collectors of military and/or Navy memorabilia will love this one too!

    The variety is listed in the Variety Coin Register as VCR#2/DDO#2/DDR#2.

    The photos shown are from one of several specimens that I have in stock.  They are a perfect representation of the die stage, strength and clarity of the variety offered here. 

$35.00 each
