Re: Would it be possible....... ??

For those of us that do not have edit capabilities but would like to add photos / discussion / theories - could we have an individual thread attached to a date / mm page for a running discussion of that specific date / mm. Would like to have someplace that could be a running dialogue for die study ...

Paypal. Thanks JB.

Update: Is a membership to SSDC juried? Or could I have possibly acquired a virus on my dated equipment? Thanks for any input.

Re: Cleaning or Residue?

My guess is anything we can find in our environment could interact with a coin. Electricity, radiation, chemicals, including all mentioned; combined. Then throw in a bunch of stuff we don't even know about, making it all hard to pin down. Experimentation with minimal damage....great idea, imo. If on...

Damn, I poked it under magnification and it is wax or even grease. Been there a long time but It moved. Thanks for the help. I really appreciate it.
Curiosity here. The debris moved, did it fall off? Just wondering what the flake may be... Thanks for your time.

Re: did acid cause this?

....as I agree with yours. Especially when in doubt don't. I use that all the time now.
I see in your photos the residue after clean-up on steel mortar working tools. An alkaline reaction.

Re: did acid cause this?

Ingredient of mortar, cement... some limestone based materal.

Excuse me please, DHalladay but, you are meaning this is die damage? Thank you for your patience, really.
I am recovering from VWRD. Not necessarily a bad thing.

Re: 1921-P honest eye?

You have me thinking now, before I say anything.... I feel it is kind of sad the way most coins are portrayed on the Ebay. The Raw don't seem to be realized for the bits our history they represent. The photography is terrible... by todays standards. A method to generate an awareness ; without ruinin...

Re: 1921-P honest eye?

I see a little bit of crud spotting, and a die-polsihed front of eye (somewhat common) but nothing from that tiny area zoom pic is screaming at me that the entire coin is has been cleaned. Let's get to the good stuff though... Please explain "Experimenting with this new nano-silver technology" :P T...

Re: 1921-P honest eye?

IMHO; This 'common' date coin has been cleaned. To what extent, a simple one. The coin shows dark 'blotching', a warning sign for me. It also shows signs of metal movement, once again, circulation. If your looking for advice on coins that are 'for sale', you should PM VAMmer's you trust with your l...

It's a little too close up for me to tell.
I will upload whole coin to compare in AM. Thanks.

@VamHelsing Here is that full obv. You can sure tell that eye area has been messed with. See what it looks like in a month.

Re: 1921-P honest eye?

It's too easy to hide alterations and defects with angles and lighting to tell you anything from a single picture. It's definitely an eye, though. Are you worried about the long horizontal mark or the diagonal one? Edit: are you worried that the coin is altered, or the photo ...? I'm having a hard ...

Re: I think Heritage made a BIG mistake

.....lets try it. On three, everyone crack all your coins out of their slabs...lets see what happens! .... It won't work unless everyone is on board. Just an idea... I would bet everything would work out just fine.
