bhinkle 's post about his 80/82/whatever it might be coin with WONDERFUL shark fin scrtaches all over the reverse ( http://www.vamworld.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=7330 ) got me to thinking about an unsung hero in my opinion: http://ec2-13-58-222-16.us-east-2.compute.amazonaws.com/wiki/1878-P_VAM...

Re: I need help, with my 1878 78 rev Morgan

Bert,

If you're unhappy with it because it is scratched up, feel free to drop it in the post to me. I'll take the clearly flawed coin off your hands and relieve you of your misery...

Re: I need help, with my 1878 78 rev Morgan

Holy sharkbait, Bert. What a lovely set of lines you got going on there. Way more impressive than what I pathetically questioned about the VAM-39A to 39B transition http://www.vamworld.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=5092 ... Same bloke, same tools, different die but impressive art?! Curious... the cr...

Re: Silver Dollar 1904 O

"when is a doubled profile a doubled profile?" I've had similar questions concerning date placement - near, far or slanted? And mint mark position and tilt. My education is a work in progress. As for PUP photos to be added to the VAM listing pages, I think Ihnumis1 has provided a few, especially th...

Re: 1891-O VAM-22 - all it's cracked up to be?

Thanks. I hear you about worn coins with cracks looking more advanced. The latter one here shows a lot more than the others - crack in the upper reaches of the M, more across STATES OF and the left wing (not shown but I can provide pictures). No offense to the darksiders but I think if this were on ...

Re: 1891-O VAM-22 - all it's cracked up to be?

Meant to ask, too: any of those owners of the six VAM-22s in the SSDC registry, how cracked up are yours?

Re: Help on 1882-P Metal in 2

Nice mystery. I'd suggest looking very closely and carefully at the date digits - any doubling at all on any of them? Most of the 82-Ps have some form of doubling, many of them very subtle. Looking at the non-doubled listings don't show any that match yours... If you can post up-close pictures of th...

1891-O VAM-22 - all it's cracked up to be?

Have two rather ugly 91-Os that I believe are both VAM-22s. I can post other pictures but want to concentrate on the cracking pattern on the reverse. Question I'm looking help on: When does a crack become a break? The two coins are different stages, one earlier one later... are both simply cracked? ...

You're on the right track, I believe that most of us do not want to deprive you of the joy of making your own identification. Great pictures and attention to detail.

Wow. I was raised to communicate and act as if everything would be seen and heard by everyone - and to judge it all under 'would this make your momma proud' flag. Disturbing on so many levels and a sad statement of how difficult it is for some people are to work through differences. Let's all learn ...

Re: 1882-P VAM 4, for the page

Curious, what do you mean 'as originally plated'?

Are these pictures from LVA from the coin Bill Fivaz submitted in 1974?

And has this been signed of by JB or JR? That'd rock if this has been found and clarified!

Re: 1882 - Dubious VAM 2 - Did I find it?

Looking forward to learning what this is.

:popcorn:

The 82-P coins are full of doubled date digits which kinda makes it a fun series. All I know is your coin doesn't match my VAM-32 discovery coin. 8-)

Encouraging you to continue asking questions when you've hit an impasse (assuming you've done your own homework as LateDateMorganGuy questioned). If you've not tried this yet, you can always do a search on the primary page for, in this example, "profile" as many of the descriptions have mention of a...

Re: 1885-P VAM-??

Boy looks like a 1G in some ways but the date doesn't match up? Don't think it this quite yet but some of the reverse cracks look similar - but not identical.

Definitely not a 1A.

Re: Doing a little deeper dive into 1891 o - VAMs 14, 14a and 20

SSDC shows zero straight 14s registered... I'm honored to own the 14A DC and have a few other ones but these don't help the hunt for what appears to be a very elusive precursor.

Re: Doing a little deeper dive into 1891 o - VAMs 14, 14a and 20

Be interested to see if this is a straight 14 and not just a worn-down 14A.
