Re: 1926-S VAM 3K2

There is more to this story than I had initially thought. After looking at my coins, VAM 3K1 came first, followed by EDS VAM 3K2 (your coin) then LDS VAM 3K2 (my discovery coin), then VAM 3K3, which is paired with a new obverse die. My VAM 3K1 has minor rev die polishing, but not nearly as dramatic ...

Re: 1926-S VAM 3K2

I think the question is related to the number of distinct die states (DS) - DS 1 (VAM 3K1) has the die scratch neck w/o obv or rev die ;polish, DS 2 has either rev die polish of VAM 3K3 w/o obv die polish or obv polish in right field w/o reverse polish, DS 3 has both die polish on right field obv & ...

Re: Clashed Parical E OBV

I don't think that this is a VAM 1AF1,. The area where the clashed E is suppose to be looks polished, and the reverse isn't right.
If you can clearly see a partial clashed E, then you have a great new discovery.

Re: 1923-S VAM 5

My VAM 5 is clashed also, so I suspect that the unclashed version is more scarce. However, unless this reverse is paired with 2 different obverse dies, I don't see justification for a new listing. If it HAS been paired with 2 different obverse dies, then I would list them as VAM 5A, 5B as was done f...

Re: 1926-S VAM 3K2

It appears that your coin is a currently unlisted die state between VAM 3K3 (which occurred earlier) and VAM 3K2, as my discovery coin has the file lines in the LLQ of the obverse. Without seeing the discovery coin for VAM 3K3, I don't know if Leroy would list your coin as a subvariety (VAM 3K3a?, V...

Re: 1926-S VAM 3K2

Nice pickup! Does it have the file lines in the left lower quadrant of the obverse? Hard to tell from the photo.

I agree with VAMpicker. I saw the coin on the HA auction & passed on bidding due to concern re: attribution.

Re: 1923S PEACE VAM HELP.

Not listed. I am tracking about 100 more 1923S die varieties, this is one of the better ones. I would expect Leroy to list it, as the die polishing lines in the right field are obvious, and the die cracks are diagnostic.
Nice pickup!

Re: 1921 Peace 1H Obv/1F2 Rev.

The file lines above WE do not match VAM 1H. I cannot see whether or not there is the die scratch on E of ONE of VAM 1F.
Hope this is helpful.

Your coin is VAM 1Y, including the die gouge on 1 in date, & the die crack reverse at K9.
