Re: Inventory Reduction Sale

I met with you two (Larry and Dave) and Allan a couple of times maybe ten years or so ago.
Last time I think was a place downtown STL nearby to Alan's work.
Would enjoy meeting with you again.
Is Alan now in Atlanta or Florida?

Re: 1878 S VAM-40

The engraved wing feather area makes me think V-45.

Revisions to 1900=O O/CC VAM-7, 7A, 10, and 10A

At the bottom of the VAMWorld description for 1900-O O/CC VAM-7, 7A, 10, and 10A is “Threads” that has clickable “1900 O/CC Revision Letter”. Clicking takes you to Leroy’s letter where he lists the revision to VAM7, 7A, 10, and 10A. Beneath the revisions he lists the revision for VAM-7 as it will ap...

78-S V-42B EDS

Russ James discovered the 78S V-42B in 2019.
Below is a photo of my V-42B EDS and a photo of my 42B.
The 42B EDS does not have the die scratch lines that the 42B has.
The 42B EDS does have the denticle impression marks that are on the 42B.

Re: Die Adjustment Strike ?

I do not have anything to weight the coin. The fields on the coin are semi-PL. When I tip and turn the coin to reflect the light I cannot see any change in the field above or below STATES, so there isn't any beveling. Yes, eagle's right wing tip is weak; much weaker than eagle's left wing tip. Denti...

Re: Die Adjustment Strike ?

I don't think this is a V-22A.
I don't see the notch on the inner bottom of the 3 of date.
I don't see the lines at the bottom of the Y of LIBERTY.

Re: 1891-O GSA soft pack population

If you mean the population of GSA soft packs that were in the GSA Sale in the early 1970's -there is only a total number of 84,476. To date there has been no data from the government on how many dollars (by date and mint) that were put into the GSA soft pack holders. The exception is the 1878-CC dol...

Re: 1891-O GSA soft pack population

The info on NGC soft packs can be found on their web site.
I just checked and NGC has graded and slabbed 28 1891-O soft packs from POOR/About Good to 55.
I did not check PCGS but if they have done any it would be only a few.

21-D V-1i EDS

The 21-D V-1i series has 1i1, 1i2, and 1i3.
This 21-D has die cracks in the right places for V-1i.
However, this V-1i looks like it is an earlier die state than any of the three 1i.

Re: 99-P struck thru wire obv & rev

Reply to JB question
I don't think the struck thru goes into the edge. nor the denticles.
The 99-P is in SDB - I will check next time I am in the SDB.
