Re: Tried the rose thorn method

Soaked about 2 days, then lightly used a Q-tip on it. The rose thorn helped take the remaining stubborn goop out of the date area. I should have done a closeup of the date prior to the soak.

Tried the rose thorn method

Recent find was all gummed up, but thought I knew what it was based on date position. A little acetone soak and the gentle use of the thorn exposed this 91o VAM.

My first impression is post mint damage, a hit from the edge of another Morgan.

Re: Grade opinions, please! :-)

So you're the one that grabbed it. I was away from computer when it got posted and would have snapped it up if you hadn't. The price was definitely right on it.

Appreciate the replies. When I get time later this week, I'll try to sit down and go through the list again one by one to see if I can spot something I missed earlier.

1922 D B2 reverse - help?

Might just be missing it in my searching, but it has me stumped. Many die cracks and maybe displaced field below Y?

Re: Die Marker Question

I found I had that question when I first started looking at VAMs - was told the primary page would have the markers noted on the original VAM, and subsequent VAMs (i.e. a, b, c or .1, .2 etc. ) would only need to show the added feature which created the new VAM listing. After reading this, you'll be...

Re: 1883-P - Basic die information including overall averages

That is a great information source for one doing a study. I need to look back on here and see what you have posted from 1891. The E clash of 1891 o was informative for this collector. Thanks for posting these historical pieces of info.

Re: Proof of existence? VAM-130 or 185? (1878)

I have an 1891 o VAM 4a in an ANACS holder that I would love to use to fill the SSDC empty spot (that likely doesn't exist)..... but since it is an 1890 o, I can't make myself fill that empty slot either..... LOL

Re: Found another 1893-O VAM-6 privately-made, post your 1893-O/1894-O PMs

Curious if any of the 93 o privately made are known to have a rotated reverse. Several years back at a local show, there was a dealer that had 5 or 6 of the 1893 o's in his stock that all looked "funny". Each of them had approximate rotation of 45 to 75 degrees. He said he had bought them all from a...
