Re: Clashes and Cracks

Two examples of clash & break that come to mind are 1890-O VAM-4C and 1921 VAM-24B2.

@Tekkie1

Felix,
Do you know how I got over my crying? I just took a look at my last two 80-P picks. :P

I'll chime in. Pics are of the same coin in different lighting conditions. Look at the PMD around the eye, etc. A shadow in the hair vee is plausible. Identical matching post mint scratches are not.

Thanks for the lesson. Too cool. 8-)

Re: 1880P Question

To be clear the first picture I posted is my actual coin, the 2 full size pictures are ones I took from the Ebay posting that I bought the coin from, that was supposed to be the coin I was buying. I will put up pic's I take later today of my coin, but back to my original question does it look like ...

That's one kick-ass coin Lee!! If I squint juussst a little, I can almost see a clashed "E"... ;) ;) Did I mention, "You suck"! Congrats! :D Felix, When I received the coin and saw the cotton blossom clash on the reverse, I went looking for an E. For half a second I was hopeful and then realized th...

Re: 1880P Question

I’m glad that you are happy with your coin.
But to be clear, a defined or polished hair vee doesn’t make one coin better or worse.
There are some great 80-P VAMs both ways.

Again, welcome to VAMworld and the madness. 😜

Re: 1880P Question

I’m using my phone.now. If I was on my computer I would crop the photos and clearly show you how the V in the hair curls above the first and second right stars are very different. If you look above the 1 in the date there is a mark on the neck. They are in almost the same spot. However, they are dif...

You know Lee, they look like different obverses but a couple of scratches, one right at the jaw line and one vertical scuff in front of a star and "UNUM" seem to match in both pics. Though I can't see the same thing under the digits. :?:
Look at the hair vee
Totally different coin

Re: 1880P Question

IMO (in my opinion), I would leave the photos as you already posted them.
If you make any changes, those that read the thread later think I have rocks in my head. Ha ha.

Between you and me, they already think that.

Re: 1880P Question

Tommytucker,
Welcome to VAMworld. I hope that you get into this very interesting hobby.

The two obverse photos that you showed are from two different coins. I look at 80-Ps regularly, and these are definitely two different
obeverse.

Re: 1880 Vam 33A

That's a real hard one.
That was a good buy at $500 in AU-53.
I don't think I'll find another one, so I don't think I would sell my XF-45 for $500.
Good luck

Re: just won this 80 p

Very nice chart Alan.

Just to be clear, I was referring to the strong obverse clashing above the cap that is commonly seen on clashed Es.
Sorry if I wasn’t clear before.
