Re: Covid Shots

I have recommended to my patients who are over age 65 and/or have medical problems to take the vaccine, as the virus will likely be worse. Those under age 40 w/o medical problems should probably not take it, as the risk of vaccine may be higher than the virus. Everyone is in in between. For treatmen...

Re: 1926 S Peace Dollar

At one time we all started as novices. Keep on looking and studying, and asking questions, then at some point you too will be considered an expert, and others will be learning from you. In the mean time, enjoy the search!

Re: 1926 S Peace Dollar

First of all, Welcome Aboard! In attributing your coin - the easiest marker appears to be the overpolished area between the headband with separation of the 2 most leftward rays. There are several 1926S VAMs with "shortened obverse rays"; the mintmark appears to be in a somewhat low position, so that...

Re: 1925 Peace I'm stumped

What I see on the obverse appears to be machine doubling. What is on the reverse appears to be a long die crack, but it does not appear to have any displacement. I don't recognize it as a listed VAM, & Leroy usually does not list die a crack w/o some displacement.

Hope this is helpful,

Re: 1923-S VAM help

I don't recognize this one, but there are many which are listed for die file lines R. Are there any other die markers? Die cracks?

Re: 1923-S Die Rust and Wear?

Could be VAM 1Ci. The photos are in the VAM updated, but there is no clear die marker other than the die wear/rust spots, and late die state of many dies have this feature with a similar pattern.

Re: 1923-S Help Needed Update Possibly 1E1 or 1E2

As I posted on another thread, the VAM 1E reverse was paired with 2 obverse dies. This is the 2nd obverse.

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...
