Re: 1878 7TF Minor Renumbering

I agree! Using the same number for different die pairs since they have a common attribute, like "Low Date" is confusing at best for newcomers and sometimes frustrating for those that have been at this for years. It also doesn't help to determine population and often ignores some very interesting die...

1897-P VAM-11 Doubled 1-97, tripled 8. Misaligned Die Need help on minting process, die adjustments, possible recutting?

Based on die wear this VAM-11 is a later die state than the two RonH FCP on the page, both of which are well centered. The Acc version does show some die migration but not nearly as much as this one. I am trying to figure out if the obverse die was loose and retightened off center or if it was remov...

Re: Minor 1882-O shake-up

Thanks for the clarifications on this messydesk. None of these tasks are simple edits. We all have a lot of work to do to 'adjust' the many similar issues that are in each Date/MM list. Is there still an experts list so we can consult on this? The criteria for adding a new VAM has improved over the ...

Re: Help with 1896-P Near Slanted Date, Doubled 1 Tripled 896, Doubled Motto and Reverse

Yup, you are correct. For at least one of the multiple die sets and ours isn't explained. I let the Die set 2 pictures with lots of polishing lines confuse me again. I just cropped some features from the RonH FCPs and they match what would be die set 1 but don't show the detail in the date needed to...

Help with 1896-P Near Slanted Date, Doubled 1 Tripled 896, Doubled Motto and Reverse

Picked this flashy lady up raw as nicely struck and thought I saw doubling in the six. Looking closer there appears to be slight doubling in the 1 and tripling in the 896 plus other interesting features. The 1896-P page has a shorter list than most and I went through all of them without finding this...
