Re: 1923-P VAM 1AV

I think somebody broke some rolls of these recently. I have seen a number of them over the last month at shows. Pretty nice die file lines.

Re: Favorite Non-List VAM

Mine would be a toss up.
1879s vam 57 obverse of 34a with re engraved tf rev 79
1879s vam 1j monster clash for a 79s
1879s vam 68 obv of vam 50 overpolished acid treated reverse
. I can’t vote for 1898o v20 because it is a cherrypickers listed coin but I’d like to.

Re: 1899O,morgen gouge on Eyes

i think people are waiting for you to research it and tell them what you figured out. go to morgan vams by date, then click on 1899o and then start researching. ALL morgan dollars are vams, as someone previously stated. we don't get paid to attribute other people's coins.

Re: Help with 1880-P Overdate, Doubled Neck, Motto, Date & Reverse

i don't see any evidence of an overdate. i see very minor doubling that wouldn't get listed. examine date position, doubling of digits, and then look through listed vams with those characteristics that have doubling on the reverse.

Re: 1896-O oval O mystery coin

It took no time for me to tell this was a modern counterfeit. The surfaces and the obverse devices with that stupid chinese toning(it is so obvious to many of us), coupled with an awful reverse, Say modern. And just because you aren’t as familiar with them as many of us are doesn’t mean that you are...

Re: Fresh Back From LVA on 1881-O VAM 1L

This is seriously aggravating. I tried to prove that this was a denticle clash and was shot down repeatedly. I didn’t believe the “occluded gas” theory but i gave up. The coin sat in my box of vams until a few months ago and it got sold. I remember looking at it one last time and feeling sad that I ...

Not a1c reverse. I’ll narrow it down for you, and then I’ll let you decide which one it is. Vam 2, or vam 14.3.

Re: 1878 8TF VAM?

First, You need to determine which reverse you have. Once you narrow it down it will be much easier. This can be determined by the added wing feathers. All 8tf are at least doubled dies. Don’t worry about that part. Seeing the added wing feathers, there are only 2 possibilities. But i will let you r...

I found quite a bit but i had hoped someone else would have shared their finds by now. It was a really busy show. I sold boxes of stuff, and had great dinners, including the big one at the brasilian steak house(where i hit the salad bar).
