Re: Silver Dollar 1904 O

I sure do enjoy and appreciate all the shared insights on this site. keilg1 "The road of good intentions is paved towards... well, not necessarily hell in this instance. But not necessarily where we'd like to go?" Great question. I wish I could share with you all the excitement I felt when I first d...

Re: Silver Dollar 1904 O

"when is a doubled profile a doubled profile?" I've had similar questions concerning date placement - near, far or slanted? And mint mark position and tilt. My education is a work in progress. As for PUP photos to be added to the VAM listing pages, I think Ihnumis1 has provided a few, especially th...

Re: Found a neat way to measure relief with a ping test and spectrograph

I am pursuing this interesting area with the equipment and knowledge I have available to me here, at this time. Disappointing and woefully inadequate so far...I was unable to get the http://friture.org with my OS; which is understandable. I did download two other software apps. courtesy of Google. (...

Re: 1921-D JOH-25 Small Breaks D, S and S

The huge problem is, the 1921-D Die Crack Break Guide is horribly not up to date. Only 77 different VAMs are represented in it, out of the 228 that currently exist. I would like to try and help fix this somehow. Any ideas how I can contribute? I own 3 raw, circulated 1921-D that you folks have seen...

You have that correct. Usually happens on Dennis' 21 photos, and that is real, not a cut. For some reason his photos, sometimes, makes my brain wacko. But he does take great photos.
I remember back when @DHalladay used to take LFCP's. :) They are some of the best.

UNCLE BINGO I think I am having a similar experience with the 1921-S thornhead pg. photos that you are having with the 1880-O Vam-2 photos. Please take a look and compare these two well known Thornheads. They are the same Vam and are pictured on the same page in the catalog. I really concentrated o...

Thank you John and RWB.

Re: Found a neat way to measure relief with a ping test and spectrograph

You can infer relative differences, but not absolute. Now, if you could develop this test so that Vampires need only "ping" a coin to determine its variety -- then you'd really have something or should that be "someping?" :D I am downloading the Linux version as we speak. Interesting! Thanks for sh...
