82 O/S Die question

Just Curious, Has anyone ever VAM'd out which San Francisco Dies were used for the 82 O/S VAM 3, 4 & 5? And while I am on the subject of dies, do you believe that the "rarity" of the 2021 D Morgan MS-70 is attributed to the reusing of the previous obverse marks, and Denver had the hand me down's (in...

Re: A personal goal reached

A Humbling Feat, Congratulations!

Is there still prize money or is that a go fund me now? LOL

I remember an old B&W image somewhere of a previous success story, presenting his 100 rowed out in trays, in order. Any chance of a re-creation Image?

Again, a Huge achievement, and a most deserving owner.

Re: An 03-O find honoring @LateDateMorganGuy - and a story I'd like to share

Great Find and Great Story. Every coin, every quest has a story. How did it happen? Where has it been? Is it the only one Left? Why was it never spent? What was bought with it? Did it stay in one town and now found a home with me? And of course, friends that helped you along the way. You are a words...

Re: 1900 p.... VAM-Misstrike- Error- What is it?

Well, it's been 1 year to the day since my first original post. We have had a dramatic increase in values, partially due to the release of the 2021 Morgans and Peace Dollars. We have seen the Covid decrease and coin shows open back up, but please stay safe. We have seen LVA hand the reins to a very ...

Re: 89P- 23B, but what stage?

Yup- It's a 30... Double hair, double ear, Polish Line for sure.

Still like getting the Uncirculated Weird Fields that many non-vammer's take for wear.

Thanks for consideratley Crushing that stage 3, but I will keep searching!

Thanks WRPacific for your help as well.

Be safe

89P- 23B, but what stage?

So now that I have learned more and perused the 4 variations on the website, I need advise. This coin doesn't seem to fall into any of the 4 Die stages. 1) It does have the orange peel look on the obverse, like stage 2, but none of the stars have roughness. Each star has all of their point with like...

Re: How Long Have You Collected our Beloved Morgan Dollars ???

But technology is still flawed and we probably will never see the eventual rarities of all coins. Morgans and Peace Dollars are wonderful, but nearly custom as we dial in the lost information of vams by all of your hard work. And electricity was put into the Mints when? Collecting usually starts on ...

Re: Vampicker

PCGS also had 2 labels for First Strike, a Flag First Strike and a 100th Anniversary Morgan. Should they value the same since you are buying for the coin grade? Are the lower grades (68) worth more or less since they are rarer? And why did I see some MS-70 2021-D's on the bay go for over $500 recent...

Re: 80/79 P Maybe?

I really appreciate the insight, and the history of 1880. Agree whole-heartedly about the relief difference between 18 and 80. But this new information does lead to new questions. If the VAM system boil down to die differences, does it not consider the Hub? Cracks, scribbles, gouges, fingers are all...

80/79 P Maybe?

Picked this 1880P up. The glint under 2nd 8 drew me in. It appears as a grind-polish to remove the 7's bottom. The 0 seems to have a raised edge of the 9 inside the 0 near bottom. Unfortunately, the top of the 0 has a damage gouge. First star to the right is doubled. Haven't found the VAM yet, so I ...

Re: Vampicker

I actually prefer the style of the ANACS holder. It allows the reading of the Year-Mint when rowed out and wish I could find similar holders loose for temporary use. Maybe the issue is the color, the yellow tone is not an assertive color, nor does it contrast BU. It does looks great on a dark, earth...
