Re: 1923 D VAM 1X2

Probably not. I imagine someone sent him the VAM 1X2 in 2010 because of the break above the 1 that wasn't mentioned on the VAM 1X1 because of the larger break by IN, causing him to list that break separately. Three years later, someone realized that the break above the 1 was there before the one by...

1923 D VAM 1X2

I recently picked up a 1923 D VAM 1X2 and have a question about the statement attributed to Leroy in the Comments:
"1. LVA letter Aug 12 2013. VAM 1X2 occurs before 1X1-made note of that in description." Is this a correct statement? It seems to me this comment should read VAM 1X2 occurs after 1X1.

Re: Can Anyone help Identify This 1922 D Peace Dollar?

ANACS has only graded two 1922 D VAM 16 B , both as AU 58. My DC piece was purchased around 18 years ago from Jim's Coins & Stamps Auction. The coin languished in an NGC holder after they failed to honor my paid attribution retained cud request. Resubmitted to ANACS in 2016 and finally got respectf...

Re: Can Anyone help Identify This 1922 D Peace Dollar?

VAM 16B John, you are the crusher of dreams. I must have been through the 1922 D list of VAM's 4 or 5 times, but evidently skipped over the descriptions beginning with doubling features. Can someone please add VAM 16B to the 1922 D Die Break Guide? Nice find BJ. Does your coin display reverse colla...

Can Anyone help Identify This 1922 D Peace Dollar?

This 1922 D has a B2 reverse with no significant PUP'S. The observe is a different story. There is a rim to rim die break through the top of the Y in LIBERTY terminating with rim cuds at both ends of the break. There is also a long die break from the designer initials through Liberty's neck through ...

Re: 1ST 2022 NEWP Wild 1878 S

The price was right too. I saw this listed and passed on it as I already had an XF VAM 58. Glad it found a good home.

Re: 1921 P VAM 32A "Capped A" Die Break Progression

I have two VAM 32A's. One with the die break in the bottom of the 2 and one without. The one without the die break appears to be a bit earlier then Dennis'.

Pictures for 1921-S VAM 21A

There are not many pictures of the 1921-S VAM 21A on its VAM page. I took a few pictures of mine. This is really a messed up reverse. Feel free to add some or all to the VAM page.

I vote for completely false dies, not an alteration.
Could be. Do you know of others like it?
Yes, I have one. It only weighs 22.8 grams.

Re: Clashed 1895-O

JR thanks for getting back to me on this. It is the first clashed 1895-O I have run across and it really spiked my curiosity. I never thought to check the full photo of the VAM 1.

Re: Clashed 1895-O

Help! JR and JB you have probably seen hundreds more of this date than I have. Have either of you seen a clashed 1895-O or have any ideas of what die pair it might be?

Clashed 1895-O

Is anyone familiar with a clashed 1895-O? If so what VAM number would it be? The coin I saw did not have a readily noticeable letter transfer. It appeared to have a slanted date and a mint mark tilted right. The closest match I could come up with was a VAM 6 before the polishing event, however I cou...

Sad news for sure. I did not know him personally but had recently purchased a couple of coins from him. The coins and transactions were seamless. Prayers for his family and those close to him.

Re: Horned O Die Break Progression

I have a couple 1921-D VAM 1BQ's. I will have to locate them and see how late the die states are. Seems to me at least one of them is a legit "Horned O".
