Re: Due Diligence

Agreed

There is no right answer here, which is what turns people off.

Anyway, before someone asks, just focus on the 2 please. The answer is on the pages.
Metal in date would be a good start...

Due Diligence

1882 VAM 42 duplicate listing...

See this is what happens when a slightly later state of an existing variety is sent in without the proper comparison coins.

Re: 1899O,morgen gouge on Eyes

I see doubling.

Always start the journey with date and Mint mark, to start narrowing the search...

What you are calling a gouge, Leroy may call a scratch, depends on the day.

I see doubling Obv and rev.

What do you think you have there? VAM wise...

Re: pic of 1882-P VAM24A

The 24 was listed for the MPD,... The 24 is the LDS, 24A should likely be the ULDS, the polishing, if same on both means they are the same pair. Right. You are looking for the Mid and early, I have an EDS rev....let me see the LFPC's please. Then I'll know where to tell you to look. Did the re-work ...

Re: 1882-P Open & Closed 2 confusion

What you are referring to was early attempt at distinguishing varieties. Not really used too much in "today's" listings. Most of the dates VAM 1-4 (up to 6) were done when Morris was still in the picture. The reason they focused on the 2 is that the 188 was in the Hubs, so I look more at placement o...

Re: pic of 1882-P VAM24A

Nice! Been hoping someone would "fix" the Obv 24 progression.

This Obverse was brought back to life after being shelved and rusted...then "Something happened"...

Now, Can you tell me where the reverse came from, for this marriage? :shock:

Focus on the Rev. polishing... :lol:

Re: Proof 1889 P ?

I'm not seeing the "die marker" and odds are a proof coin isn't going to be found as a clashed die pair.

Re: Guess the grade

Late, but... At first read and saw the pics, I said 65, to myself (based on PCGS photograde, it "makes" it. When I got to the bottom I went back to the holder pics...I would leave it where it is, Maybe a bit different in hand, but I think 64 is more appropriate for it, WTF are the "spots and that th...

Re: Congrats to the High Bidder

There is a number assigned to this variety yes.

The coin looks PL/DMPL, There is only 1 variety 1882 p that is documented to have 3 distinct die / die pairs. All 3 are pictured on our pages.

Happy hunting.
