They are from HA, but HA references Collector Universe for the images. I guess better to be safe than sorry and not post them. It may be academic anyway since the obv and rev dies are shown on the other VAM pages.
Not VAM-13. The V13 date is only far, not very far, and the die chip is in the wrong place. A die study shows the UFO die pair shown above is unique.

There seems to be an unlisted 1884-S die pair. It is a very far date, and a mint mark placement that can be described as set right, maybe slightly high. The reverse is known with polished out wreath leaves, and the ones above ON in ONE are noticeable. On LDS coins, a chip forms on the second wreath ...
Well, after the bath, the 1880-P is not a VAM-13. It sure looked like it could be under a loupe. But keep in mind I have it at VF-20, so determinig the actual VAM is really not possible. The reverse markers for the VAM-13 were just not there. It is headed for the bargain bucket at my local B&M, as a...
Weth's description is pretty good. I think one of the things that is not talked about a lot is that die studies can identify which markers or PUPS survive all die states. Thus a die study can eliminate a lot of "but my coin has this". Some markers appear or disappear during the die life. Without a d...

I encountered a LDS 1921-D VAM-16. It is raw and looks to be AU50ish. I say it is a LDS because the die cracks are much more extensive than the die crack guide. But I would have no idea. I paid $35. You can have it for $40 and you pay shipping if there are any takers, which I doubt. But maybe someon...
