Re: OT - Feed Finger Gouges Or ?

Read an excellent description which seems to explain the die damage that created this Walker. See: ERROR-REF.COM Die Damage: Peripheral die damage (Die Attrition Error) due to accidental contact with the collar or other machine part Example: 1983 Lincoln cent (pictured) with numerous short obliquely...

Re: OT - Feed Finger Gouges Or ?

Jon Sullivan said " I can't tell based on the photos. Could be die damage or a clashed die."

Die damage is an obvious observation. The real question is what caused this die damage?

Thanks JR for your thoughtful consideration about this walker error.

Re: A link or brief explanation please

I also noticed 1921 D VAM 1AA3 was delisted from the VAMWorld Page. There has been no notice or information concerning this matter posted for the members of VAMWorld that I am aware of. :( :shock:

Re: OT - Feed Finger Gouges Or ?

ANACS grade/attribution posted. 1940 50c ANACS # 5420329 VF 25 Struck from Eroded Dies Comment - Most probably Die Erosion. Still uncertain about what may have caused this. It might be worthwhile to have this examined by Mike Diamond or Jon Sullivan. I would disagree with "Struck from Eroded Dies". ...

Re: 2 more unknown 1921-Ds

Coin #1 has no match that is presently listed on 1921 D Die Crack Break Guide. The die crack from D left into the wreath does not match up with a die crack from bottom serif of L thru top of A into right wreath.

Re: 1921-D VAM 1B1 EDS?

This 1921 D is one of the earlier die stages of VAM 1B1. The capped R break is forming off the die crack above R.
Please note that the listing for VAM 1B EDS is a separate very early die stage listing. See VAM 1B EDS Photos

1923 D Peg Leg Upgrade

Just picked an AU 58 1923 D VAM 1B2 Peg Leg with great details on the rim die breaks across from ONE on the reverse. This stage is slightly earlier than the VLDS pictured on the Page. High grade examples of the Peg Leg VAM 1B2 VLDS have been very elusive!

Re: peculiar 21d reed queation

RE: "A rotating collar die is noted as the cause of this overlapping." Please explain what this means. Think we've mixed a couple of things here.

Re: peculiar 21d reed queation

There was no definition on the Page about this term. I would interpret a "collar die rotation" as some lateral play or looseness in the collar die like mechanical doubling occurs with the obverse and/or reverse die. Comment on Page about "collar rotation" is under the 1884 O VAM 42B which says "Reed...

Re: OT - 1976 Ike Clashed Letters D WE plus INDENT

This IKE $ shows strong obverse clashed collar die marks below and right of date with adjacent rim die break.
Recent discussion about rim die breaks resulting from collar clashes prompted me to post this example. Another weaker obverse collar clash is also evident at 1:00.

Re: peculiar 21d reed queation

The collar die is the third die involved in striking coins. Overlapping reeding is a noted variety on the Page with the 1884 O VAM 4, 4A, and 4B as examples. A rotating collar die is noted as the cause of this overlapping. The centered lines between the reeding look like machining marks left when th...

Re: Another over graded ANACS coin.

Overgraded I agree. No reverse design left should equal the grade .5
However, I have never seen a fractional grade. :)

Nice to see VAMs 1i3 1J 1K3 1N3 1W3 and 1AA2 included on this order. ANACS population does not show a single specimen for VAM 1i3 or 1W3. Scribble photography must be challenging on those late die state VAMs. Thanks for updated scribble photos on the Page. Late die state 1921 D coins have to be grad...

Nice to see a new 1922 D VAM 2CG listing in 2022! Congrats Tom and thank you especially for that 1922 D VAM 2D3 DC listed in 2015. A VAM 2D3 was returned in my last ANACS order as an AU 58. Keep up the good work!!
