Re: New 78-S ??

Love the frustration brought on by the entire 78S series. I'm not an expert but this looks like a VAM-43 variant to me but it doesn't quite match the two dies exactly. Lots of different die combos for VAM-103, too, as we can't rule in or out any die chip on the E (E PLURI)... Yet, many of those can ...

Re: 1898-O V15 obv with normal and slight right tilt O mm?

Thanks, ljs123 . I believe it'll be a straight VAM-15 if the mm is designated as 'high' but it certainly doesn't appear as high as the other ones with that moniker. Tough part about vamming - vams are based on descriptions, not die combinations... yet many a vam has been put as a sub variety based o...

Curious - you selling one or looking to get one?

I've been looking for one - had one almost in the bag but someone out bid me recently at the last moment.

Re: 78-S VAM-28 with doubled LIBERTY?

Yeah, VAM 28. Take a look at the VAM 8 page. That doubling is plated by Van Allen Yup, see that now and blindingly obvious! Oops. Wondering if the guide page - http://ec2-13-58-222-16.us-east-2.compute.amazonaws.com/wiki/1878-S_B2_Varieties - can be amended to move the VAM-28 from the " 4th Star Br...

78-S VAM-28 with doubled LIBERTY?

ShamShield 's question about a 78-S that possibly turned out to be a VAM-16 ( http://www.vamworld.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=6823&p=56348#p56348 ) got me to looking at another coin I have. Definitely not a 16, but shares the reverse... therefore a 20 or a 28. Forehead and cotton leaf PUPs are th...

1898-O V15 obv with normal and slight right tilt O mm?

Convinced this is a VAM-15 obverse based on the date placement (normal, but almost near), the characteristic doubling of the 1 and a fairly similar doubling seen on the second 8: 1898-O 15obv-normal O tilt right mm date digits gredfeather.jpg but the MM is not high to my eye and and, if anything, se...

Re: 1881 S questions

Always start with the date and the mint mark. Of the pictures you posted, those are the two that are needed to attribute this coin. I don't see any clash marks of note. 81-S can be difficult to attribute due to frequent machine doubling, but this one isn't hard. Your initial assessment is on the ri...
