Re: 1878-S VAM-111

Flat-chested … I stand corrected. I've picked two 111's from online auctions and both times I used the MM position to make the call, as I couldn't distinguish the die scratch in the tail feathers from the online photos. What threw me with yours is that "phantom" diagonal die scratch in the perfect p...

Re: 1878s Doubled RIB

I'm not seeing a Doubled 'RIB'. All the doubled RIB have a complete 4th right star. Vam 6 has a complete nostril and 22, 77, and 111 have a polished nostril. You can eliminate all of these.

Re: Another 8 TF bites the Dust

A common numismatic practice is to engrave an 'X' on a coin the owner felt was counterfeit, thus forever protecting the community from this non-coin. Perhaps an overzealous previous owner missed the boat with this one. A crying shame.
