Re: 1921 Peace Vam 1AD OR VAM 1Z?

As I am writing this, I have a VAM 1z and my DC VAM 1AD in hand. The VAM 1AD has rust spots in the right field behind the hair not present on the VAM 1z. The 1z has a line in the top curl of 2 shown on the VAMworld page which is not present on the VAM 1AD. The polishing lines on the reverse are simi...

The VAM 1E reverse was paired with 2 obverse dies. Notice the different file line on R of LIBERTY.

Re: June 2021 Whitman Baltimore show canceled.

Was it cancelled due to COVID? If so, it makes no sense as Chattanooga is still on for early March & Dalton is still on for mid April.

Re: Leroy Update

Please post your "unlisted" varieties here first. Leroy does not have coins to compare, so there is a risk that he will make a duplicate listing. It is much easier to get a listing made than to get one killed.
Thanks

1926S VAM 5A die break neverse

Has anyone else seen this? Vertical dir break thru A of PEACE on reverse, similar to VAM 3Q & 3T. My other 5A's don't have it.

Re: 1923-P my first Peace

I am not sure that this is VAM 1CZ. Do the file lines between E & R match those on the VAMworld page?

Re: 2020.... year in review

While I was able to find a few good coins mainly on internet sites, my best time was spent organizing my coins in order to get 23 VAM kills/revisions.
With the approval of 2 vaccines, & more on the way, things should soon get +/- back to normal with regard to coin shows & VAM collecting.

Stay safe, and at least consider getting the vaccine when available, as too many people still think that COVID is a hoax.

Keep doing die studies, that is what makes VAM collecting fun.

Re: 1922-P VAM 16

The problem that I have had with VAM 16 is difficulty in attribution. This VAM was listed many moons ago, & I don't know who has the discovery coin. There are a multitude of DDOs & DDRs in 1922 Peace dollars; does your coin have any other die markers?

Re: NEW 1926-S VAM 3AA

In his last letter to me, Leroy said that he no longer has internet or email. I am sure that he would appreciate letters, cards, etc.
