Re: 1888-O help, Blob Line in O

Thanks for the feedback. I have thought and really reviewed the other aspects of the coin. This coin has taught me to not dial in on one feature, be flexible and look at all 3 sides methodically and carefully. The 1888-O NGC MS-63 with the blob is............ A VAM 1-D, Pitted and denticle gouges in...

1888-O help, Blob Line in O

A little help on this coin, please. Bought this NGC from image, reflection from this fairly wide yet vertical blob line made O appear narrow, but obviously it is not. The O is set left and is an NGC-63. The line goes directly down the center, not an edge. It is raised, not a gouge... Any VAM Ideas?

Re: 82 O/S Die question

Thanks for clearing up my confusion that the reverse Die used was a new "extra". It would be wonderful to have been a fly on the wall when these decisions and discussions were happening... Why are we shipping our die? Why did they get the blanks? Why do these E's keep getting caught tween the tail f...

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 ...
