Re: What's the difference between 1878 8tf V22B & C?

the one i picked up has major polishing lines in Liberty, the ear is very heavily polished away, along with the hair area. the clashing at neck is over half gone and the hair-vee lower clash is gone completely. no grease at neck or jaw. there is some good commentary about a, b, c stages. there is a ...

Re: What's the difference between 1878 8tf V22B & C?

i'm so very glad to read this as i found a 22b/c today and was trying to decipher which one it was by the vam pages and although i was trying to do it on the fly, it is good to know i didn't pass up on some major rarity as the pops would indicate for 22c. if it is still avail i may go back and buy i...

Re: broken r 1878s vam 2

Also consider if 1E should be eliminated from the registry set. i have no dog in the fight but would 1e be an elimination or a re-assign if the 1e came before 103.5? i presume it is a die classifcation problem? presumptively to me if it is removed from registry, then getting leroy to do something w...

Re: 1884 0 / cc

that vam 6 look much more like a o/cc than the vam 10. when vamsterdam posted it i looked at the o/o on that page and wow. i know it isn't one but if that inner part of the mm wore down, shoo wee. picked a v10 this week. not a big deal but i was happy to find an unc even if the bullion is making pur...

Re: Key Date CC Cast Counterfeits

a good coin to post. it is above average for what i'm used to seeing.

they mess up the reverses and use obv of 21 with earlier dates.

i'd give this a 4.5-5 out of 10 for the public being able to detect it.

almost thought it may have just been whizzed a bit.

Re: 1881-S VAM-1B vs VAM-67

Re: 1881-S VAM-1B vs VAM-67

I see on the pages that there is a question about the two subject VAMs possibly sharing the same reverse die. Looks like JR has seen VAM-67 coins both with (LDS) and without the chip in eagle's wing. fwiw, a quick mm comparison shows they cannot be the same reverse die (not even possible). so long ...
