Re: ANACS grades in

Thanks, Dennis

Would I be safe to speculate (on the Bay) that you will continue your efforts involving those very few 'JOH' s that do remain?

I would appreciate it very much if someone would start the page, thanks.
@davidkclose I went ahead and got a start on the page you requested. Hope it is of some help.
It's a learning experience for me in an area I am not too familiar with.

Re: 1923-P Vam 1ck Vamcracker

As the die cracks are different, they are from different dies . For the coin at the top of the page, it is difficult to determine from the photo if this is some form of PMD, rusted or worn die, or ??. As you had noted, for this to be from a clash is very unlikely, & would almost certainly show stro...

Also if your into modern, will need one with the P and W. And if you gold plate any you will also need a C and a D.
Don't forget the ones made in Manila.
...another interesting direction new to me. Thanks

You guys make this the best Vam site!

Re: 1924-P: How would you attribute this Rim?

For 1921 Peace dollars, the mint was experimenting with which die should be the hammer die. The 1921 VAM 1F2 has a collar clash on the reverse, whereas the VAM 1K2 and VAM 1AC have the collar clash on the obverse. On all later dates, collar clashes occur on the reverse. Thank you for all your contr...

Re: 1924-P: How would you attribute this Rim?

Thanks once again, John.
I think the only way I am going to understand the minting process is to try and operate one of those vintage presses; in person...then you will see some errors. :)

Re: 1924-P: How would you attribute this Rim?

Thanks @RogerRock
I found info on another coin that I guess you could call an 'anvil die rim clash'. It is a 1921 Peace Vam-1K2. I think they have a different 'look' than the more common hammer die rim clash. Here is a picture:

Re: 1924-P: How would you attribute this Rim?

I am learning also a clash on the obverse of a Peace Dollar is a rare thing.
I have only found information on one so far in my search for some kind of comparison.
It is on a 1921 Peace Vam-1AC:

Re: 1921-S: can anyone help?

This coin was in a small group of D-mint coins I recently got, and I am profoundly clueless. Any VAM help would be greatly appreciated -- There are finger feed areas at TA and OF. finger feeds.jpg Dennis. I see the 'feed areas at TA and Of.' Is there evidence of a gouge I am probably missing? Thanks.

Finally identified this coin as a VAM 1Q2 but the radial reverse break extend through Eagle's neck as a displaced field break. Don't know if this qualifies as a new 1Q3 vam or a late die stage 1Q2. If someone has interest in posting these images on the 1Q2 page, I give my permission . I have added ...
