Re: die crack map is made

I was hoping I wouldn't need a big red line to indicate where a crack is...I was thinking; with today's Technology. ...I am Not talking about this: LP-825x340.jpg ZyGlo Rather, a series of photos with varied light only. Similar to the layer thingy mentioned: GCS4120.JPG GCS4121.JPG GCS4122.JPG Stack...

Re: Peace dollar Slanted reverses

Lurch29165 You have peaked my interest, especially that 1922 you mentioned. I am a little confused on overlay business. Here is a photo attempt of what is considered/accepted a +5 degree overlay: plus 5 degree attempt.jpg ...it is about 5'. (I put a protractor on the screen) Note: my drawing above ...

Re: 1923-S VAM help

The field on the Peace Dollar obv., under the R in LIBERTY and above hair ; is that area studied much as a clash area? Those die file lines in your first photo are there for a reason. This photo of a 1923-S VAM-1M obv. has a lot going on in that area, also 1923-S VAM-1R obv. I know you are familiar ...

Re: 1923-S Die Rust and Wear?

Clogged, cracked and over used die. No rust. Thanks for bringing this to my attention RogerB . I just looked over the 23-S VAM photos and found the word "rust" was not mentioned by Leroy. He used the word "pitted". Their is a difference in my opinion. Here are a few of his examples: 1923-S_VAM-1P_P...

Re: 1923-S Die Rust and Wear?

Could be VAM 1Ci. The photos are in the VAM updated , but there is no clear die marker other than the die wear/rust spots, and late die state of many dies have this feature with a similar pattern. Thanks davidkclose , is the VAM updated a supplement? Not much for die markers only this die crack/bre...

1923-S Die Pitted and Worn?

Hello everyone. I have been attempting to attribute this 1923-S. Please take a look at this obverse; could we be looking at a VAM-1Ci? I have not been able to locate a photo for a comparison...yet.

Kinda like a face Recognition for coins. Maybe putting a lazer eched serial number on the individual coin.
I think you are right, photos taken here 'are' that lazer.
