Re: Vam designation "JOH-23" 1921-D

Not the H series, no scribbles and the breaks are different... particularly on reverse.

1921 Struck Through Obverse and Reverse

Here are images of what appears to be an obverse struck through and maybe a reverse grease filled die 1921 Morgan. Proper analysis? http://www.grandrapidscoins.com/images/Desktop/2021/September/1921struck1.jpg http://www.grandrapidscoins.com/images/Desktop/2021/September/1921struck2.jpg http://www.g...

Re: Vam designation "JOH-23" 1921-D

So my coin is a match to the die crack listing and it seem to be substantial enough for listing. Don't see any sribbling.

Vam designation "JOH-23" 1921-D

So apparently I have not been paying attention but can someone explain the "JOH" designation? I was looking at the die break page for the 1921-D Morgan and the last few listings do not have traditional VAM numbers but rather "JOH" numbers.

Need helps with 1880-S Morgan and 1922-D Peace

Can not identify either coin - 1880-S is medium size S and has a radial die break on obverse from rim to chin. 1922-D has a significant die break through PEACE. Any help appreciated. http://www.grandrapidscoins.com/images/Desktop/2021/September/1880so.jpg http://www.grandrapidscoins.com/images/Deskt...

1888 Vam 16 with die chips

This one fits the description of VAM16 with obverse die gouges but the reverse has die chips in UNITED. Don't see anything listed for this and the overall description of VAM 16 and the delisted VAM16A is confusing. Any thoughts appreciated. https://www.grandrapidscoins.com/images/Desktop/2021/May/18...

Very Late Stage 1921-D Vam 2B

Here are images of what I believe to be a very late 1921-D Vam 2B - Not certain if this deserves a new listing but it does have some pretty dramatic die breaks. http://www.grandrapidscoins.com/images/Desktop/2021/April/pjm1921d2b1.jpg http://www.grandrapidscoins.com/images/Desktop/2021/April/pjm1921...

Re: 1888 Struck Thru?

As an update on this post, I found a 1967 quarter with similar marks... this coin is a GEM uncirculated coin with the same type of marks... has to be mint error or planchet flaw. Again, welcome opinions. http://www.grandrapidscoins.com/images/Desktop/2021/April/196725c3.jpg http://www.grandrapidscoi...

Vam 13 fits except for the die gouge by F on reverse. Still don't understand what happened on the rim.

1888 Struck Thru? Updated

At first glance I assumed this to be a bag chatter coin - reeding damage. But upon closer look, I think it might be struck thru something.... not certain what. Welcome opinions. http://www.grandrapidscoins.com/images/Desktop/2021/February/18881.jpg http://www.grandrapidscoins.com/images/Desktop/2021...

1921 "Mush" - strike? Post Mint Damage? Acid Treatment?

Welcome opinions on what is going on with this 1921 Morgan. Assume acid treatment but surface is relatively smooth. What do you think is going on here? http://www.grandrapidscoins.com/images/Desktop/2021/January/pjm1921mush1.jpg http://www.grandrapidscoins.com/images/Desktop/2021/January/pjm1921mush...
