Re: 1923-S darkside (& hopefully a non-micro-VAMming) question

Recently posted a LDS 1923 S VAM 1AG with unlisted reverse radial die break from rim below C (PEACE) on June 30. Photos were posted on July 18 2022. T...

Re: 1882O Morgan VAM 22a with split denticles

The odd dented denticles are very common on 1921 S VAM 1BV. Leroy called out the VAM 1BV as " the most severe case of overpolished upper tail feathers that I've seen."

Re: help identifying VAMs on this 1921 and 1922-D?

First things first - the 22 D has residue (tape glue) and needs an acetone bath

Re: over polished areas good or bad?

In the world of die varieties, an over polished area is good because it represents a departure from the original design intention and creates a design change which is the definition of a coin variety. Major design changes are the most interesting and often receive a listing (VAM number) whereas mino...

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:
