2023 Morgan Peace open enrollments

If interested, US Mint just opened enrollments for 2023 Morgan and Peace dollars, uncirculated 275K, proof 400k, and reverse proofs 250K. Limit 3. I think reverse proofs are cool.

Re: 1882 GSA Carson city grand snake history.

From the newspaper article it seems the US Mint labled it a 1882 when sold to the first buyer, perhaps it came from a bag of 1882s. Maybe the obverse and reverse clashes, mint mark location help identify it as an 1882?

1923 P Peace dollar file lines VAM?

Is there a VAM number for this Peace dollar? It has file lines by TRUST, some doubling of TRUST, obv. is clashed but I can't see any letter transfer. VAM-1AV also has file lines by TRUST but they don't look the same to me. I don't see any file lines or clash on rev. Thanks.

Re: 2021 Morgan and Peace dollars

Some on Coin Community and others sent emails to the US Mint asking they lower the household limits on these for collectors to have a better chance to get them. The mint actually listened. The household limit just went from 50 down to 10. :D

2021 Morgan and Peace dollars

The US Mint just listed the release dates for the 2021 Morgan and Peace dollars, no photos or prices yet. They will be staggered releases depending on mint mark, starting May 24. Do you suppose they will get VAM numbers eventually?

Re: 1923 S Peace dollar double clash spikes VAM?

It does seem to have an obverse small chip on ray below B and a chip above O on reverse. Thanks David for sharing your knowledge. Mark

1923 S Peace dollar double clash spikes VAM?

I have this 1923 S Peace dollar with reverse double clash spikes. I've looked at all the listed ones on VAMWORLD and cannot find a match. Maybe I missed it. Of all the double clashed spikes shown on VAMWORLD mine seems to be the same reverse die and clashes position match to VAM-1CY. But this variet...

Hi crabscrape, I don't understand your comment. What do you mean or who are you referring to when you said "play DUMB and expect the real experts.....?" I've only been VAMing about a year and six months. I am learning. I posted the coin to get opinions about its attribution. Members here and on anot...

Re: VAM? 1922 S Pease obv. berry clash, rev. clashes

Hey all, I got the coin back from Leroy. He sent a kind note and a page of current guidelines for sending him coins. He highlighted with a marker the part about clashes without letter transfer don't get listed and single spikes don't get listed unless they are longer than mine. So the coin is a VAM-...

Re: VAM? 1922 S Pease obv. berry clash, rev. clashes

Thanks VernP,
The clashes on your 26s 1AF1 do look like my 22S clashes. The clashed rays on mine are shifted a little different. I went ahead and sent the coin to Leroy. I'll let you all know what he said when I get it back.

Re: VAM? 1922 S Pease obv. berry clash, rev. clashes

Hi, In front of LIberty's forehead and hair, the clash fades away before there would be any E transfer, at least I cannot see anything with 10x. I do see a little of the eagle's back feather where the rays begin. I'm undecided whether to send this coin to Leroy. Without letter transfer I assume a ne...

Re: VAM? 1922 S Pease obv. berry clash, rev. clashes

Wow, that would be nice to have a new variety. I don't know if the address for Leroy on the supplements page is current and correct? Would Leroy be able to look at my photos posted here or I could email the pics to him and determine if it's a new variety? Thanks for comments.

Re: VAM ID help please 1922 S Pease dollar

Hi davidkclose, You are correct about the reverse. Thanks for pointing it out. With 10x it does appear there is only one spike clash and maybe there is no VAM number for this coin. You'd think with the obv./rev. clashes there would be. Hello jrfaust, Here's more pics I took using bulb light and indi...

Re: 1878 8TF 14.2... N clash?

Hi TheYokel, That is a nice looking coin. Looks like there may be a faint letter transfer, holding it in hand with a 10x magnifier would help. There's so much other going on with the coin the lack of letter transfer isn't a big deal. Sometimes multiple clashes cancel out and eliminate letter transfe...

Re: New 8TF variety?...

I don't know much but I'm learning. Check out VAM-14.2 and the guide for non assigned varieties where it says there's a late die state of VAM-14.2 with die cracks not significant enough to warrant a new number. The photo of die crack behind Liberty's head looks like yours. The position of the neck c...

VAM? 1922 S Pease obv. berry clash, rev. clashes

Hello, I'm trying to identify the VAM number for this 1922 S Peace dollar. I'm leaning toward VAM-1F according to the position of the spike clash. There are file lines and seems to be a very faint second spike. Obvious clash areas on obv. and rev. but I can't find any matching photos on VAMWorld. Th...

Okay thanks. I'm learning. It would still be fun to have a short spike at a good price.
