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

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.

Re: 1925-p When to bug a friend

I agree with jfaust. I have not seen this before, so it would be listable, for the overpolished neck feathers, but I would need to see the coin first.

Re: 1923-P Over Polished

I have seen quite a few "file lines" varieties in 1922 & 1923. Given that there are so many, and some of these are a die state of other varieties, I would want to hold off on listing any for now. I don't want to see these become as some of the "scribble lines" varieties in Morgans, being a huge numb...
