1900-S VAM-29 Reed Clash Marks at Jaw-Neck Line?

1900-S VAM-29 Reed Clash Marks at Jaw-Neck Line? I’m working on a die study of 1900-S VAM-29 using the Heritage Auction’s full coin photos and three coins that I have. I have found what appears to be damage to the die at the jaw-neck line from the reeds of a previously struck coin. This was seen in ...

Re: OT

4" fresh fluffy snow last night, 5" wet snow Sunday, 2" Monday. Soon it will be winter in Northwest Vermont. No -30F for a while like when I moved here 30 years ago so yup climate change is real.

Re: Suggestion - Would a standard reference grid make attribution easier?

Hi RMG1883CC and jgrinz, Thanks for the feedback.
