Re: My Lucky 13!

Found this from a while ago and was wondering: can we get pictures of the variety? Would love to see what the MPD and die chips look like...

Re: 1879O Morgan help

Again, great pictures showing a lot of action on the coin. I'm not seeing the classical hub doubling seen on 30-36 and 39, so those can be ruled out but I'm definitely not the expert. I still love the gouge at the beak - it looks familiar to another coin I've seen (and likely described somewhere on ...

Re: 1879O Morgan help

For the hub doubling, be sure to look closely at UNITED as these are the key letters - can't miss them when they're there.

Re: 1879O Morgan help

Wicked cool polish lines in many places. Nice gouge at the beak, too. Looks like a tilted left MM? Or regular slightly shifted left? Can you see any hub doubling (see http://www.vamworld.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=7017&p=58254#p58254 for a bit of my own questioning on this lovely date and mint)? ...

1891-O V1Ax - a lit'l guidance?

Still insanely jealous of messydesk 's 1A2 pick up in such a high condition ( http://www.vamworld.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=6899 if any of you missed that great post).

Re: I don't usually talk smack...

Ah, my friend morganman ... if you have a few spares I'd be willing to be a recipient... I do love the hunt yet I do love feeling the coin as I enjoy looking at it in 3-dimensions. Kinda like how I like my wife - she takes a pretty picture but there ain't nothing like holiding her. (Of course, I don...

... so I won't, but I will vent a bit because I so had my sights on the 78-S VAM-50 on GC last night only to be out bid by someone also beliving this to be that coin. C'mon peeps. If this was you, please gloat about your purchase... Sure there are others in AU58 holders... as well as higher grades, ...

Re: 1896-P VAM-5A obverse scratches?

Whatever was happening in Philly was being echoed in the Big Easy. I've only begun scratching the surface of P (including a VAM-4, VAM-19 and VAM-20) and O flavors (the western ones being mostly out of my price range), but have already picked up these two beauties: 96-O v9 and v19 fun.jpg So many mo...

Re: 1896-P VAM-5A obverse scratches?

Embarassingly I do now see a clear mention of "Some heavy die polishing lines in Phrygian cap top" on the VAM-5A page. Oy. I'd not abuse anyone's graces any more but I'd recommend adding this coin to the 2023 top 12 coins to find list... Hardly any registered in SSDC but a wonderfully complex variet...

Re: 1900-P near 2x date C3 rev - not seeing it described

Brilliant and makes sense. VAM-5 most likely then? Don't believe it to be a VAM-6 based on descriptions.

Thanks again, John!

Re: 1900-P near 2x date C3 rev - not seeing it described

First right star appears completely normal as do the other stars: First two on the right: WIN_20221201_16_48_59_Pro.jpg First right star top (where I'd think the machine doubling would be): WIN_20221201_16_49_58_Pro.jpg And the bottom (that might indicate a VAM-23) - apparently clean: WIN_20221201_1...

1900-P near 2x date C3 rev - not seeing it described

I'm sure this is somewhere but I don't think this totally matches up the closest potentials. All digits clearly doubled and looking to be 'real' doubles - not machine doubling. Near date, so this rules out the description of the VAM-12 which is clearly very near but describes the digit doubling in a...

1896-P VAM-5A obverse scratches?

Was going to post this in the 'No one ever posts picks anymore' link, but this contains an additional question. Yes, I recently picked this up at a local shop (and yes, buying Morgans in England!) and loved it outright for the doubled 1 and rust patches on the right wing. Looking at the obverse I sa...
