Re: 1902-O VAM-4B Photos for Page

i am pretty certain that i have a vam 4b. it has a c4 reverse, and matches from memory. i sent it off to be graded today so there was no way to do a side-by-side comparison.

Re: 1891-S VAM-3 Die question

since i do not have any vam 2's to study, i will ask others to examine theirs to look for common or differing die markers, no matter how tiny they are. i have practiced this on 1879s, and 1878 8tf for years.

Re: 2021-O Polished Die?

these new dollars are soo bland. even the peace dollars. no pl, or dmpl's, so uniformly hubbed, and many details are soft. i don't care for them, especially the look of the privy makrs.

Re: one of the top letter clashed coins i've seen to-date non-morgan.

I have had several monster clashes from 1812, 1814, and 1814 where liberty shows in side and outside of the shield. I think i have two left.

Re: $85 coin sold for $7,125

I’ve been told about those 108xxx series. But that is stupid money for a holder. That’s more than a regency.

Re: 2022 Proof Morgan's and Peace Dollars

Yeah, like john said, if they struck them in clad(oh, the sacrilege!) and sold them cheap so everyone could have them, then i could be interesting.

Re: ANYONE ELSE HAVE THIS ON THERE 2021 D MORGAN?

i've seen quite a few people with cracks, strike throughs, and other stuff that were hoping to get listed as a new variety. all i could do was roll my eyes. you should see some of the stuff people are coming up with. as for this, it is possibly a crack/chip but could be metal debris.

Re: PCGS 2021 pops keep going up

this is one more reason that pcgs can't get our orders out in a decent time(yet they charge us the same stinking prices); i have see quite a few that had serious strike throughs, and other problems that were being returned to the mint.
