Re: can an AU55 coin be PROOF LIKE

@morganman that was a vam 4 eds ngc62dmpl, and i helped get it from logan to ash. and as been said, pl or dmpl is separate from grade. pl and dmpl has to do with reflectivity.

Re: What is the correct term?

on other series, we refer to die chips as die breaks. small, or large depending on the size. or are we referring to radial, or curving ones? are not chips where a piece of the die has broken away?

Re: 1878-S VAM-96

78s v96 should never have been removed. I still have the vam 96 79s and it has die gouges in the lower hair that i have never been seen on vam 43.

Re: Availability of updates of the encyclopedia of Morgan and Peace dollars

several vam 13, and vam 11's have been examined< and they were found to be misattributed. i believe the vam 13's were vam 14.4. it's been awhile since we discussed these. a number of coins have been delisted due to improper attributions initially.

I have 2 1878s v96. Every v67/104 that i have seen has the same obverse/reverse markers. All are vam 67 in my book. V85 was my discovery and was sold to mark kimpton eons ago for a pittance but i have no idea who he sold it to. I do not believe that it is possible for vam 91 to exist. I have seen ma...

Well, all kidding aside, that is a super nice coin. The 1921 morgan 15% M.A.D. Was spectacular. I wish i knew where it was.
