I simply asked if there was anyone who could clue me in to the variety of VAM-109's and did not think it was necessary to post photos of my own coins to show off the differences, but I see now that was in error. My camera broke over a year ago and I ceased at that time to do any more work on coin ph...
See the 1878s-VAM 109 photo of the eye spike above posted by Lewis, that spike doth not resemble the eye spike shown in the VAM 109 photos, in the slightest. I did not think it necessary to post photos when I started this thread, because of this great variation. Should I take the time to find exampl...
And so the big fat eye spike shown on the VAM-109 page must be from a coin that is an early die state. This eye spike looks ABSOLUTELY NOTHING like the eye spikes on later die state VAM-109 coins.
Oops, meant to say "die states" and not "die stages", I wanted to know what people know about the different die states of the 1878s VAM-109, as the eye spikes radically differ. I shouldn't have asked. I'm sorry.
Again, my concern is solely with the variety of eye spikes within VAM-109, wanting to know the order of production within the confines of VAM-109. There are different die states within VAM-109.
I've a few of these VAM-109's, I see that the eye spike varies greatly, some have a very heavy and easily noticeable spike, others have the spike greatly subdued. Any input in the matter would be appreciated.
You guys are quibbling about trivial matters, about mint condition coins that are graded MS62 instead of MS63, whereas I am stuck with a scratched VF20 that should have received a details grade.
Just received a PCGS 1878s VF20 in the mail, I saw damage on the coin in the seller's photos but bid on it and bought it anyway. Now I see that the scratches are significant, neither ANACS nor NGC would never have provided this coin with a clear grade. Not sure why people are so hung up on obtaining...
I guess there are close to thirty of these coins rolling around in graded cases, they are not super rare. I have two with clear grades and now this third example with problems.
Exceedingly hard to find coin, thought somebody would congratulate me over this. I also managed to obtain an extremely worn, and badly scratched details grade 1878-S VAM 106 this year, shares the same reverse, also difficult to obtain in any condition.
