Re: 1887 s Reverse Planchet Error!

Welcome to VAMWorld ! Many folks are confused about what constitutes an error or a variety (VAM). An error is a planchet, die, or strike mishap. A variety is a design change on the die itself. The reverse of this 1887 S shows a defective planchet error, specifically, a lamination. Pressure from the ...

Re: 1921 d - VAM 1CQ

Another easily seen secondary PUP as small break in denticles. Good potential for progression of that denticle break into the field where connecting die crack extends to P.

Re: 1921 D VAM 1L[?] Is it 2, 3 or a new 4?

Submitted my LDS 1921 D VAM 1L3 twice to LVA, in August 12 2018 and again in April 22 2021. Both times resulted in additional descriptions as VAM 1L3. First revision "added breaks above TATES OF to description". Second revision added "plus break above wing tip to A". No plate photos were included on...

Re: Peace VAM update Q1 2022

Recently graded ANACS 1923 $ VAM 1AE MS 62 originally attributed VAM 1AE2 DC by LVA shows very little if any die gouges below GOD. This example will be submitted to Dr. Close sometime this year for re-evaluation. Perhaps this LDS will help determine listable stage for Tom Petrosie also.

Re: New ANACS sub

Congrats Tom on Genuine Trade Dollar confirmation and ANACS grades ! Sometimes planchet cracks combined with incomplete planchet clip translate into a Ragged Planchet Clip. Grading services may assign generalized error term descriptions instead of a more accurate and valuable specific error type.

Re: 1923 VAM 1AE Extra Hair

All of the VAM 1AEs that I have seen so far have the die break at neck point, Leroy mentioned this possibility when he gave the listing of VAM 1AE2. The other feature under consideration is the die gouge under GOD, of which I have included a photo. Has anyone seen this w/o the die break(s)? I belie...

Gary - The die crack/die break guides are woefully incomplete. Many VAM listings have not been updated into the guides.

1923 VAM 1AE Extra Hair

Does anyone have or know of this extra hair die break WITHOUT die crack across neck? The existence of an EDS is needed for corroboration of VAM 1AE2.
