Re: over polished areas good or bad?

My first thought when someone mentions over polished hair on an 82-O is to look for an O/S. With the lines inside the ear, have you looked at VAM-5 or 46? The same obverse was used for both. http://ec2-13-58-222-16.us-east-2.compute.amazonaws.com/wiki/1882-O_VAM-5 http://ec2-13-58-222-16.us-east-2.c...

Re: 1921-P First known Example Vam 110.

The two photos I requested, confirms what I first thought. You asked why the photos I requested are important. For 1921-Ps, there are two different types of reverses, D1 and D2. One of your posts points out that VAM-110 is listed as a D2 reverse. Now look at the two photos that I requested. I think ...

Please post a close up of the eagle’s right claw. Left claw as you are looking at the eagle.
Also a close up of the top of the right wreath that includes the berries.

Re: 1921-P First known Example Vam 110.

You can only post 5 photos at a time, but you can post as many photos as you like.
Just hit the “Post Reply” and add another 5 photos. Do that as many times as you like.

I’m pretty sure it’s not a VAM-110, or I may need better glasses.

The 3ED die pair was discovered in 2009 before your 2012 discovery.

Re: 1900-O VAM 38D

I am going to try an post some photos of Pete's 38D.
Nice pick of a hard to find hard clash.
Pete can really find some great clashed coins.

Re: Possible new finds

I concede that this is not a denticle die clash. Though I don't see a bag mark or a contact mark from another coin. When I saw the pyramid shapes, excitement overwhelmed reason. Who hasn't felt that? Also, thanks for the advice Gary. But I followed all of the new protocols on Vam World, to the lett...

Re: Is this a denticle die clash?

Looks like PMD to me. In others words, a hit from the edge of another coin.

Looking forward to your photos later. Please make sure to show the reverse G clash. I do not see any obverse G transfer.
