1892-P Giant Die Crack

I'm trying to find the 1892-P VAM that has a large die crack running along the top of LURIBUS. It connects to the tops of most of the letters in that and almost touches the S. Let me know where I can find that, or if I should post pictures if it's something so far unheard of.

1923-S VAM-1Y2?

I'm trying to attribute my 1923-S Peace Dollar, and this is the closest I can find, but it's not a direct match: 1923-S VAM-1Y2 Die File Lines Obverse & Reverse, Die Break Hair Bun http://ec2-13-58-222-16.us-east-2.compute.amazonaws.com/w/images/7/72/DKC1923S_VAM_1Y2.jpg Here's my coin: IMG_20200118...

Interesting Peace Dollar

There's a big hunk of metal on this eagles neck. Doesn't look like damage to me, the coin is either MS or high AU. What VAM is this? I didn't see anything on the 1922-S page that seemed to fit.

Re: 1884-S Attribution

Thanks! Here's a comparison and maybe I'm missing something but the date doesn't look quite right to me. The top of the top loop on the first 8 looks larger on my coin, and my denticles look more elongated. The left bottom serif on the 1 seems to extend further left than in VAM4: https://imgur.com/1...

1884-S Attribution

Trying to figure out what this 1884-S is. Could be counterfeit. Would be nice to find any comps.

Yes, it's VAM 5. Engraved feathers and doubled nostril are the key pick-ups for that one.
Thank you very much!

1878-S VAM-5 Confirmation

I believe I have a VAM-5 here, but I'm unable to see some of the features like the polishing lines near the cotton blossoms and some of the doubling in the date (looks like the 7 is doubled). Please let me know what you think. https://imgur.com/7qInrNQ.jpg https://imgur.com/puOEIWy.jpg https://imgur...

Mirroring the wiki

I'm not sure exactly where to ask this but here it is: would it be possible for me to export and mirror the mediawiki periodically? I would really hate to see all of the effort that's gone into that disappear like so many other things on the internet. I've run my own Wikipedia mirror before so I kno...

Thank you all very much! I'm pretty confident it's a VAM-39 now.

1879-S VAM-6?

I have what I believe is a VAM6, but it's missing a few things...

Yeah I'm thinking you're right, it does look VERY similar. Thanks!

1890-CC VAM2 Perhaps?

Hello! I'm pretty new to VAMs but they're tons of fun. I was taking a look at my 1890-CC today and I noticed this one: http://ec2-13-58-222-16.us-east-2.compute.amazonaws.com/wiki/1890-CC_VAM-2 It says the CC is touching the wreath. It looks like the second C is doubled as well, similar to VAM5, but...
