What makes a variety into a known variety, exactly?
I understand the concept...a die or die pairing which created unique distinctive feature(s).
I understand the process...attribution, like via James at Variety Vista.
I understand it could be from something like a die gouge...like many VAMs for Morgans.
But what is it that, for example, would make James want to list it as a variety???
Because a few people have submitted it for attribution?
Longevity of the feature? Like did it presumably strike a lot of coins (perhaps as the gouge changed shape or got worse/worn) before the die was replaced?
Coins are Neato!
