Another "re-identified" VAM - 1921 VAM 3FS "Discovery" now listed as VAM3ED???

Here is another puzzle. I have the discovery piece (Discoverd in 2012) and the letter from LVA for VAM 3FS which no longer appears on VAMWorld but the exact coin is now listed as VAM 3ED (discoverd 2017). The 3ED page even uses my original photos!!! What happened? http://www.grandrapidscoins.com/ima...

Re: Help "Re-Indentifying" 1922 VAM Discovery Piece

Here is an image of the lower part of the letter. Clearly my coin is very different from the current VAM 2EM listing.

Help "Re-Identifying" 1922 VAM Discovery Piece

Here are images of a "discovery VAM" of my submitted to LVA in 2015. Now the VamWorld listing simply saw pitted reverse (which this coin is not) and no images. I don't think it was delisted but I can't find it otherwise. Any help appreciated. http://www.grandrapidscoins.com/images/Desktop/2022/Septe...

Re: 1923 Peace VAM 1Q2+

Here are two additional photos. 1. one showing that it is the radial break from the rim and what convinces me the neck is a break and not a planchet flaw. 2. the second show another small die break on Liberty's neck above date. http://www.grandrapidscoins.com/images/Desktop/2022/May/19231q23.jpg htt...

1923 Peace VAM 1Q2+

Finally identified this coin as a VAM 1Q2 but the radial reverse break extend through Eagle's neck as a displaced field break. Don't know if this qualifies as a new 1Q3 vam or a late die stage 1Q2. If someone has interest in posting these images on the 1Q2 page, I give my permission. http://www.gran...
