OT: Does file format .png take up space on a server?

Great site here: I have been working on trying to keep the server room for this site a little cooler. Do file formats make any difference? Thanks for any comments! Thanks Ant...got it, now...

Re: *insert catchy title here...*

Nice coin, waiting for the safe arrival of an 1883-O possibly?

Re: 1921-P VAMs 24A1-2-3 progression

What is the relationship between the 24A and 24B series? I see none. Their scribbles are different, which means the reverses are different. Thanks Dennis, great fun for me here. Your feeling is the two above photos are not ' common to each other '. My feeling is they may be simular... There, I said...

It worked for me if what I'm looking at is a 21P VAM-24 Thanks so much, hairfield1. I am trying to learn about this computer and VAM scribbles...Did you have to sign-in to something?

Re: 1921-P quiz for J.R. and J.B.

I don't own a scribble guide, but I did find this photograph of Leroys. Is this the same Scribbles # 168 mentioned in the 1921-P VAM-24 description? I will get one of those guides. That ANA library has everything you need, but is closed right now. Thanks.

One thing at a time Dennis! :D I am just kidding you. I have this coin I would like to try and photograph as a 1921-P VAM-24. I was calling it one of the VAM-35 's and is photographed here under the post title, "http://www.vamworld.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=4648". This new tool/laptop I use had ...

Re: 1921-P VAMs 24A1-2-3 progression

The 1921-P VAM 24 seems to be shrouded in mystery, for me anyway. The page mentions, "Die marker Die 2 - Single horizonal die polishing line from lower wreath berry opposite right L in DOLLAR", as a pup. Is there a photograph of this feature? Maybe it is on the V24A1? Thanks for the help.

Re: 1921-P honest eye?

Your coin looks totally natural to me. Thanks, Dennis. It would be nice to remove the crud from just part of a coin; leaving the rest untouched IMO. I am allergic to acetone. Here is that coin now: 1921 P 17b rev.JPG I just noticed that 'snaggle tooth' on the upper-lip...it is visible in the old ph...

Re: 1921-P honest eye?

Seriously, go to the bank and pick up a new roll of quarters. Take them home and look at your target coin carefully. Then take a couple of the other coins and hold them about a foot above your target. Drop the coins so they hit the target, then look at the results. Do this a few times and study the...

Re: 1921 P Morgan nostril Illusion

AU 1921s are good for stick poking practice. Ideal in fact. I am learning that about the 1921 S. All the 21s (maybe 3 raw coins) kind of look as if they are privately made. This coin is actually one of our beloved 1921-P's. It could be a VAM-35A. What do you think? It does have that anomaly from th...

1921 P Morgan 2 nostril Illusion

Hello, everyone
Just a quick question here:
Would you have this second nostril illusion cleaned by a third party, or go ahead and poke with the stick yourself?
Thanks for all the knowledge shared on this site.

Re: 1901-O VAM 34

That is exactly what I am going to do as soon as I can get out of this rabbit hole..... This 1901-O is just too tired to tell its story. Upon a closer inspection it's only chance was a doubled eyelid. IMO. I will still take photos, cause that's what I like to do. Thanks Dennis. GCS3578.JPG A Grand C...

Re: 1901-O VAM 34

Dennis, I :o didn't know you were also a Vam Dream Crusher. I am going to try more photos.
This coin is the only coin in an old Whitman No 9085. It has been there by itself since 1965, as far as I know. It has to be a rarer one.

Looks to me like significant contact impact, but not doubling.
Thank you Dennis. Here is the photo I should have shown you first of Rev., dirty as it is:

Re: 1901-O VAM 34

I have convinced myself this is a doubled eye lid. What do you folks think? I realize this is not a fair question with just the one photo (kind of like the Bay). Thanks for all comments.

Re: why do people do this?

pretty much the right diameter. Anyone have any ideas? Does it stay in a new 1.5" holder when told to stay? I find the circulation wear on your fifth photo of that rim to be interesting. There doesn't seem to be wear (as much) on the other four excellent photos...I agree with bigjayvee ... It is di...
