Re: Inconsitencies in comparing this 1884-O morgan to markers seen on vam page

Yeah date position and checking for any doubling in it MM Position and check for any doubling in that should put you on to where you want to be. I have it but what will you learn if I tell you Right 8-) Finally got around to cross referencing the site again, didn’t even think to check the mint mark...

Inconsitencies in comparing this 1884-O morgan to markers seen on vam page

So I have this 1884-O morgan dollar with me, and it has very visible clashes on both the obverse and reverse. I decided to see what VAM it was, and it looks very similar to 5A on vamworld. However not all the clashes are identical and some are missing entirely? Not sure if it has to do with a differ...

First coin back from LVA... and my first discovery piece!

Super pumped about getting my coin back from LVA, along with a letter describing the new sub-variety for the 1925-S peace dollar! See the letter below as well as the microscope photo from LVA. Also linked is going to be the original post I made here a while back talking about this coin which has a g...

After reviewing your coin , I say VAM 1 . What did I know , I do mostly PEACE DOLLARS .
And I respect that and I appreciate the comment :) sorry I’m new to vam’s just wondering how it can be a normal die state when there are all these markers on it that wouldn’t be on the normal die?

Re: Possible 1925-S VAM 3 but the markers do not match exactly?

Finished doing that this evening, I do not believe it matches up with any other of the die pairings or vam’s listed other than the partial of vam 3. I also did forget to mention that the talon seems to be doubled, but it is very likely to be mechanical doubling as it seems a bit flattened and at a ...

Possible 1925-S VAM 3 but the markers do not match exactly?

Recently got a new 1925-S peace dollar for the collection and immediately noticed a die crack on the obverse. Decided to pull up the vam world diagnostics to see what I could find. This coin has most of the markers of the vam 3 for the date, but not everything lines up. It has very rusted dies, both...
