Congrats on your new DC. Do you need help setting up the new page?
Thanks, and yes please!

Thanks again to the wonderful crew here for helping. The blob on the 1 was what attracted my eye at the start - funny how the minor things can lead us to see more than we think there if we just look.

Can a new slot get created in SSDC, too?

Re: Morgan newp via 3 different mints

Nice and thanks for sharing. Being raised in Wyoming and having multiple family members in Colorado, I'm particularly fond of the Front Range Coin Club and all the great people in the northeast corner of the state... Ah, the starting line of tornado alley... spectacular summertime storms, wintertime...

Update: Confirmed by LVA as a Die #3.

The webpage says "Die 3 should become a revision of Die 1." but I no longer think this true? Perhaps some die #3s lose the line as the die ages?

Re: 1878-P VAM-8 die and machine doubling? And extra pictures for the page

The combination of a doubled die and machine doubling is best seen on the E you show above. 8TF reverses are full of doubling, and to describe it all would introduce too much noise into the description, especially on VAM 8, where there are easily identified pickups. This would make it more difficul...

Strike doubling.
Thanks @fogie, as suspected.

But this is both strike and die doubling not just strike, right?

Like to welcome you in as well. I'll also hesitate to suggest which one you might have believing that 'teaching you to fish' will bring you more joy in the long run. You'll pick up the lingo, the method and the nuances (PUPs vs PMD, etc.) and other fun in short time if you keep at it and keep learni...

Realized a few more close up pictures might better illustrate what I'm seeing.

1878-P VAM-8 die and machine doubling? And extra pictures for the page

Love the description of this Hot 50 beauty. Looked at mine as I'd not examined the details in the text and saw some wonderful sights. Prompting me to wonder if pictures might help others enjoy this a bit more. What I also noticed was what I think might be a combination of regular (i.e., die) doublin...

Re: 1888-P non-slanted date VAM-39B?

Thanks, all. If this is a slanted date it might be the 39B. @PacificWR, I believe yours was the DC in 2017 -- if so, could you confirm yours and mine are a match? Thanks again, Yes. You have a VAM-39B. The crack pattern on the obverse/Reverse is the same. I just added LFCP's to the VAM-39B page. No...

1888-P non-slanted date VAM-39B?

Have a head-scratcher. I don't see this as a slanted date, but the die crack along the left stars looks eerily like the VAM-39B which is supposedly slanted. Was hoping some of the additional PUPs would help me, but the ones I'm seeing are interesting but not diagnostic... Thoughts to those of you wh...

1878-P VAM-116C additional pictures

See that none of the VAM-116 pages have detailed pictures of some of the PUPs so I though I'd add some from a 116C EDS I have (wished it were LDS so I could have the wonderful bow gouges, but no such luck). If these help, please feel free to add any or all of them. Gary FCO.jpg FCR.jpg Eye chip.jpg ...

Adding new DCs to SSDC registry please?

Put a message into SSDC but not had a response back so thought I'd ask here. Can an administrator please add slots for two of my recent DCs - 1886-P VAM-1P and 1887-S VAM-8A - into the registry so I can enter them (as can others if they have them, too)?

Thanks,

Gary
