There is also a long die break from the designer initials through Liberty's neck through ...

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".

Re: Does Morgan 1921-S VAM-4A = VAM-1AM

The 1921 S VAM 4A Discovery Coin does not have a radial die crack from denticles down thru the right T in STATES, thru o in God down to eagle's beak. I wonder if the 1AM Discovery Coin has the VAM 4 and 4A dot under the eagles left wing?

Re: 1878S VAM-45.....????

Has anyone else noticed this coin appears to be struck through wood shavings? Take a look from the bottom of the eagles right wing down through the right talon and into the arrow feathers.
