Re: 1900 O/CC VAM 11A Question

The crack transgression to a break happened slowly. Plenty of Vam 11’s out there with the crack but much less with a true field break.

Re: 1900 O/CC VAM 11A Question

I would say it’s a Vam 11 but it’s hard to say for sure just from the photo. Looks like a crack more than a break.

Re: 1900 O/CC VAM 11A Question

Leroy has the 11 at an R4 and the 11A at an R6 on the rarity scale. The 11A is without question more rare than the 11. The first TED crack is visible around the clash event of vam 11 but does not qualify for a break until VLDS. I think R6 is appropriate on rarity.

Re: 1900 O/CC VAM ID

I’m in the Vam 11 camp. Early Vam 11’s don’t have the crack through the wing.

Re: FOUND! 1900-O VAM 29

Nice find! Vam 29 is a tough one for sure. Agree the break happened early. I did find a nicer example of a 29 quite a few years ago that was right on the cusp of a 29A, crack not break. XF45 I believe and I released back her into the wild a few years back. I’ll see if I can drum up the Leroy letter ...

Nice find Dan!

Can someone add the Vam 9 to contemporary counterfeit page?

Re: Grade this. Top 100 Details?

Top 100 Vam! But not too popular of a variety. Cool ring, I’d buy it!

Re: O/CC VAM 7/7A listing error?

Vam 7 does not have the die chip on the 9. Looks like an error to me.

Nice find Dan!

Any PUP’s on the reverse worth noting? Hard to tell from the photos but looks like a possible raised dot above the A in America?

Re: 1900-o Morgan offset mint mark

There is only 1 other 1900-O with a high left MM. There is a particular die crack on that variety I’m not seeing. No clash. Vam 15 is a safe bet.

Nice coin! But unfortunately not an O/CC. Mintmark and date position don’t match any known variety.
