Re: New Orleans MInt dollar coinage and dies used Feb 1904

I think it is very interesting and as pointed out it shows very low mintage for some die pairs. Unfortunately nearly impossible to match to a particular VAM but it still means some are very scarce. Thanks for posting.

Re: 1886-P Doubled Date-Pegleg on 2nd 8, clash Help please

@alefzero Thanks for looking. VAM-25 has mark at top inside of 6 that is different, and die scratches in the ear. The reverse clash is about the same spot but not as strong.

1886-P Doubled Date-Pegleg on 2nd 8, clash Help please

Been trough the listing several times. Can’t find exact doubled date or die break that puts pegleg on the bottom of the second 8. Clash on reverse goes to at least midpoint of right side of the n, so obverse letters may be there but metal flow along neck is convoluted. Reverse die cracks on VAM-19 a...

1880-P VAM-41 Hot 50 - Nice Find

Went to my favorite shop and made an unexpected find. Picked up four raw MS64s, one 1886-P that I have to post later, an 1886-P VAM-1E2, an 1884-O clash I’m still working on and an 1887-P with date/star doubling that has a nice die break above the rear letters. Looked at all the slabs but no clashes...

1880-S VAM -9 and -11 picks from Heritage Auctions?

Did anybody pick the 1880-S VAM-11, PCGS MS62DMPL (A 60315 Lot 52315), or the VAM-9 NGC MS64DPL (A 60315 Lot 52316) from Heritage Auctions last night, 4/17/23? No VAM number was marked on either holder.

Hi keilg1 thanks for the feedback. My bad, I missed the messydesk posting of Aug 6, 2022 that stated “Former 7A is 122. Since it’s not related to VAM 7.” However, there are still problems with the pages, and maybe the premise that the -7A is not related to the -7. Also the VAM-122 has not been poste...
