Re: 1922-P VAM 2H

All will have the same doubling, unless it appears that it is a VLDS obv paired w/ new reverse. The photos do not indicate this.

Re: 1922-P VAM 2H

Nice find! Look at the reverse under PEACE - some have a nice collar clash.

Re: 1925-P LLDS

I will recheck mine. I would not be surprised if this die had a clashed E at one time, that was polished out.
In any case, this is a tough coin, nice pickup!

Re: 1923-P Vam 1ck Vamcracker

As the die cracks are different, they are from different dies. For the coin at the top of the page, it is difficult to determine from the photo if this is some form of PMD, rusted or worn die, or ??. As you had noted, for this to be from a clash is very unlikely, & would almost certainly show strong...

Re: 1923 s Unlisted Radial Die Break

The reverse die break is only on LDS coins. The variety was listed for the die clash.

Re: 1923 s Unlisted Radial Die Break

Is this the die break? If so, it is VAM 1AG. The ULDS has an obverse rim cud above RT.

Re: 1923 s Unlisted Radial Die Break

I would like to see photos first. I don't offhand recognize the description, but it may be a LDS of one already listed. In any case, nice pickup!

VAM 2A. The coin is worn enough that the doubling is difficult to see.

Re: I know, Darkside dementia.

It's a B2 reverse. I agree w/ Jody that it is heavily clashed w/ heavy polishing marks. Most likely it is a later die state (after polishing) of a listed clash such as VAM 2AV or 2BS. I don't see a letter transfer, so would be reluctant to list it other than VAM 2. Hope this is helpful, welcome aboa...

Re: 1924-P: How would you attribute this Rim?

For 1921 Peace dollars, the mint was experimenting with which die should be the hammer die. The 1921 VAM 1F2 has a collar clash on the reverse, whereas the VAM 1K2 and VAM 1AC have the collar clash on the obverse.
On all later dates, collar clashes occur on the reverse.

Re: Registering finds in the 'wild' versus bought attributed coins?

Most of mine in the Registry are "NAOH", & nearly all of mine in inventory were found "in the wild".
I am gradually getting the VAM attributions placed on the holder, at least w/ VSS stickers, but I am in no hurry, & have no inclination to pay a TPG to reholder a coin just for attribution.

Re: 1922-D new die cracks

I have not seen this before. If there is displacement across the die crack, then it would be listable, but I would have to be able to photograph the displacement.

Re: 1922-D VAM 2BN

I examined both of my VAM 2BNs, I was able to see remnant of the file lines of VAM 2Ao on the obverse, I was unable to see any remnant of file lines on the reverse. Neither obverse nor reverse had been clashed, and I know of no other die markers for the VAM 2Ao reverse. Neither die the VAM 2BN have ...

Re: 1922-D VAM 2BN

Good observation, Tom. It appears that VAM 2Ao is EDS of VAM 2BN. I will need to look at my coins (hopefully this weekend) to be sure that they share the same obv & rev dies. If they do, then a revision is in order.
