Re: 1882 GSA Carson city grand snake history.

The Error Trends Coin Magazine small booklet titled Mint Errors on Carson City Silver Dollars ©1973, has quite a few pictures and seven pages of information on this 82-CC off-center. Having this publication is another fantastic find! Love to have that reprinted so we could all own a copy... Any way...

Re: An 03-O find honoring @LateDateMorganGuy - and a story I'd like to share

That is a tough coin for sure! Welcome to the club - there are not many of us that can say we have one of them! Grade? NGC62 which I think is fair. Plenty of bangs across the whole coin that are somewhat hidden in the FCPs that'd prevent it from grading higher, but nice eye appeal. I see someone ha...

No small feat! Well done. I've got a looooong way to go to get there but I'm marching slowly toward that finish line.

Congrats again,

IMO, I'd call it a 7C since all of the lines above the left wing are gone.

Thanks. That's what I was thinking. Now if I can find a pretty 7, 7B and 7D... garsh, I'm not even half way to being 'complete.'

An 03-O find honoring @LateDateMorganGuy - and a story I'd like to share

Having had the distinct pleasure of chatting with Alan, aka LateDateMorganGuy , and getting to know him better as a person lately, I was absolutely thrilled to pick up the following coin. His original find prompted LVA to get all 'modern' and write things like "OMG! (OMG! is stronger than WOW! )" an...

Re: 1888-P VAM7 stage help, please?

I believe the end result of the original coin in question was a 7A. Have a different coin that I'd appreciate input on. What is the consensus? 7B on this one? Thanks in advance!

Re: 1900 p.... VAM-Misstrike- Error- What is it?

I'm not buying this as a die stage based on the pictures. If I was to hazard a guess, I'd say there was residue built up around the stars and then the coin saw further circulation. Later the crud was removed. If it crossed my desk, I'd most likely tank it for environmental damage. I'd really have t...

Re: 1882 GSA Carson city grand snake history.

@JackBnimble01, what a wonderful series of stories within a bigger story that is still unclear.

Myth? Lore? Reality? Doesn't matter... Joseph Campbell would approve of this version of a hero's journey even if the hero is a round slab of silver (or not...).

when entering a coin into the registry there is an option (now) to check for rotated die nd how much rotation. additionally there is a way to modify an exsisting entry. Brilliant.

Re: Calling ALL VAMMers - Rotated dies

Thanks for pointing out the rotated die page, lured_in_again Love the thought as these are fun to find. General question: How, though, to report ones that are actually rotated versus those that are not? For example, plenty of 1888-O VAM-9 coins in existence (I have three without trying to find them)...

Wonderful news. I was waiting to hear the end result as it certainly looked like an MPD to me (and my untrained eyes).

This is quite possibly one of my favorite posts because I'm an addict to the hobby and have been studying the human brain for 30+ years. In all its... er... glory.

Re: 1898-P far date?

Thanks, @DurhamJnKY.

Mine looks even a little further right. I can't make out the doubling of the 8 but the 14 was a good start and might prove to be it in the end.

Here's a low resolution of the date but more up close:

1898-P far date?

As I look at the described varieties, there are only near, normal and slanted (normal) dates - but none listed as far. Might have some slant to it, but none of the slanted dates are (apparently) as far. Do I read the date placement correctly as far? If not, none of the other pictures look to be 'as ...

Stories like this are just as valuable to me as the coins we have fun hunting.

Thanks for sharing a bit of your journey. Sounds like an amazing experience anyone would treasure.
