Can this be a new VAM or existing VAM? What do you guys think?
Seems to me you are not asking a yes or no question. Please clarify. I want to vote!
Thanks.

Nea.
I would first use 'Variety Slabbing Service' and get their opinion on how to proceed with your coin. IMO. That's what I would If I had any doubt. It maybe would help with pressure on you and Leroy.

VAM 2N is a pretty obvious one when you look at the pictures, and this ain't it.
Thanks John, I appreciate the input and patience. No VAM 2N.

Re: 1922-P

Thanks Longstrider for input. Do you mean those 4 photos may not be of the same coin? I can see how that could happen when taking a bunch of photos. I have a lot of these 1922 Peace.... I will double check with coin in hand. Note: It doesn't look like the photo listed here???🐍 I know what you mean. ...

(1882 CC & 1897 P Morgans) The similarity in the area of field, top of wreath bow to tail feather bottoms. Could a Wood Chip strike-through be of similar size and orientation on two different coins?

Yes, it looks like that. It's coming out of the coin, isn't it?
Are you not sure it is 'raised' ?

Have you tried poking it with a stick?ion/quote] if you decide to try a poking, please exercise caution. My last poke turned out to be a gas bubble on a Morgan that had somehow survived circulation: until I came along. It was not Vam/Leroy worthy but still interesting. I regret not not taking more ...

How is it not imprinted into the coin, instead of coming out of the field? Welcome to this great site!

1922-p Spiked V6?

I would like to add info/photos to my post without going to the top of the Discussion Forum.
Is this possible after the limit is reached?
I know that the photo limit policy per post is in place for good reason.
Space on server is expensive.

1922-p Spiked V6?

Hello Everyone, Judging from just these photos, do you think this Peace dollar could be a VAM 6? It looks to me like a difficult one to attribute. I've tried to take photos of the Reverse to accent any doubling. I also discovered on this coin what appears to be a 'Clash Spike on this Eagles left sho...
