Re: 1891 S VAM question

Tried to catch all the fields I saw in other VAMs. Not sure why this one is messing with me. Lol.

1891 S VAM question

Evening all! I have an MS65 1891S that I'd like to get some opinions on. I'm not sure which VAM I have here. It seems to have some doubling on 3 of the obverse stars (But they are on the wrong side to be the Vam 3) as well as a lot of polishing lines and potentially a RPM. received_753554421787858.j...

Re: 1884 CC GSA, VAM 2 Confirmation?

Thank you! My dilemma is that I haven't found any VAMs with the same die cracks that my 1884 has. I could have a new vam.... which would be amazing. Or I could have a vam 2 LDS. The grade would be hurt by the bag marks and I'm thinking she would only grade at best a 63. If I have a new vam of course...

Re: 1885 O VAM 21 and odd large marking

If you do it will add to the value of the coin. However, you will be paying additional fees for error attribution. The value of your coin may not add up to what your cost is. Thank you for the info. I'm planning on keeping this one so I will likely send it to anacs for a crossover and get the vam, ...

1884 CC GSA, VAM 2 or new Vam?

There are not many to choose from, I'm leaning towards VAM 2 because of the doubled 18. However, there are many die cracks that are not listed as diagnostics for VAM 2. Opinions always welcome here!

Re: 1885 O VAM 21 and odd large marking

Area on reverse of coin below OL is obviously a lamination where surface metal peeled off. The ragged upturned edges leave no doubt as a lamination! The deep half-moon area on rim in denticles is the result from a defective (incomplete) planchet. I'm not well acquainted with errors so thank you for...

The description is correct for the die chip. The EAGLE is facing you so the right wing is on your left.
