Re: Before Morgans, Seated, Bust, ...

is the heritage coin double-struck or just have a LOT of recutting? perhaps one of the working dies spiffed up to strike some special pieces?

Check this link from the 1878 page: 7/8 Attribution Guide.

The pictures are all quite usable.
i really like how often you link to the attribution pages. SO much time and effort has gone into those, it'd be a shame not to use em. :)

RE: "how are these numbers affected by shared dies between mints, different years of coins and reworked dies?" These were dies used by and destroyed by the San Francisco Mint for 1878. Mints did not share dies and there are no extant records about the quantities of repaired dies. All dies cycled th...

Re: 1878-S VAM-1i Rev, Unlisted Obv Die

In 1878 The San Francisco Mint used 90 obverse and 84 reverse dies for the standard silver dollar. [ Ref: RG104 E-229 Box 16 of 17 ] how are these numbers affected by shared dies between mints, different years of coins and reworked dies? not looking for specifics, just general commentary. nice resu...

Re: 1878 VAM-84..Washed out 'L'. Broken 'D'

Hi everyone, thanks for your feedback. Apart from the 'PUP's' mentioned, another one is the Die Chip on the eagle's right wing. As for experience cleaning with chemical's, I have none. Will leave this for a later date. acetone won't hurt that coin in probably a hundred year soak and a high probabil...

paint.net is pretty useful and free. you can also use PtrScr on the keyboard to get snapshots of what you are working on completely circumnavigating ANY software program but you aren't saving as nice of an image. also windows "snip" is one of my all-time favorites. does the same thing as above excep...

Welcome. All Morgan and Peace dollars are vams, some are just worth a lot more than others. What you have on the "S" in PLURIBUS is a strike thru and/or an impurity streak. Vams are not identified by these. Hope this helps.
i agree. +1

nice group. i do enjoy someone posting early dollars here. the bb-181 info i think is a bit out-dated. it is the 2nd most common in the pops with several pieces over vf. a quick search only shows 1 in ha.com archives which is a big statement in itself but other venues are known to sell a lot of earl...

Re: Name That VAM - 1891-O edition

i can't help but wonder if the "fracture" that they, whomever they are, are referring to, is that monstrous eye clash on the reverse and fracture was simply the term applied that that "damaged"? good point about the person giving the coin to Preston being the technical discoverer but that does not h...
