Re: 1878-S Vam 62 (Long Nock)

This an excellent find. I agree a V-62.
Mintmark is set higher than normal (but not a high as V-60) and set further left than the other Long Nocks.

Re: 78-S V017 small gouge in lower hair

No clashing on this V-17. I consider it a V-17 DS3.

I have been looking for one of these for a while and finally found one.
I have seen one where the gouge goes thru the hair and continues for a short while onto the field.

Re: Phonescope Smartphone Digital Microscope

My son got me an Insignia Mobile Photography Kit a while back. I tried it on an iPhone and an iPad. The macro lens had to be so close to the coin (Morgan dollar) that there was not enough room for light to get on the dollar for an acceptable photo. I could not figure out how to get enough light, so ...

Re: 1878-S Vam 1, 54, 61, 85 and 94 need to be killed or put in the “May not exist” category

The listing of VAMWorld 78-S VAMs has a list of "Believed not to Exist" at the end of the listing of individual VAMs.
The 1, 54, 61, 85, and 94 should be moved into the Believed not to Exit group.

Re: New 78-S ??

I am going to be sending the 78-S to John Baumgart in a few days.
So far seems to have an earlier rev of V-95 with an unknown obverse.
John B and John Roberts will decide the fate of this 78-S.

New 78-S ??

I have looked at this 78-S for q few weeks. I think it is a new 78-S. Please look at the photos and give your thoughts and opinions. There are polish lines in the lower hair, around Phrygian cap, and around the cotton bolls and leaves. Eagle’s left wing has some small polish lines. LIBERTY is not do...

Re: 1878 S 1 of 4 "Funky Feather" question

This is a V-76.
The 76 does not have the "pimples" in the acid treated wing leg area.
Also, the 76 has an area at the lower part of the eagle's right wing that has an acid treated area that is smooth (no pimples).
This wing area has the smoothness like the leg wing area.
