Re: Printed 2022 VAM Supplement

When the supplements become available, do they have a VAM kill page for that year's changes ?

Re: guess which 1888-O

If you haven't, go to VAM issue 32 in the newsletter archives (sept 2007 issue 9) to view the progression of the crack. Those old newsletters are wonderful, and I can see that they were a TON of work.

Another great resource and reason to be a menber.

Re: 1884-CC VAM 5...A?

Here you go.... will the stars align for a new listing?

Line form the olive branch to the wing also.

A sincere thanks for those that have contributed. Whether it gets listed or not, clashes are cool!

Re: 1884-CC VAM 5...A?

Thanks for the responses. I will take a pic of the Upper wing clash and post it.

The clash (what I call a bat wing) extends midway from the wing towards the center of the n, but doesn't touch.

Andy, you are on your game!

The only other clash not posted is what I call "the flame" of wing feathers in the field on Liberty's Lips.

23 Morgan/Peace limit increased

FYI-

If you are subscribed and pre-ordering, the mint 23 Morgan/Peace limit increased. The mintage quantity did not.

1884-CC VAM 5...A?

Does anyone have record of an 1884-CC VAM 5 with neck clash and right wreath clash, or is that not notable?

I would call this VAM 8A EDS. VAM 8A refers to exactly one die pair, while VAM 8 may not. Referring to the coin as VAM 8A EDS removes ambiguity as to which die pair it is. It is not incorrect to call it VAM 8 LDS, but it may be ambiguous.
Thank you for clearing that up.

EDS vs LDS

Good Morning, VAMed out a 21-D. Followed the crack guide which lead me to the VAM 8A, flagged R. However, my coin does not have the triangular fill over the R, but does have 3 breaks though the denticles (among others), wing gouge and polishing lines, so definitely right die. Would this be a VAM 8 L...

Re: 1896-P 14?

Thanks for the helpful responses. I have been experimenting with lenses lately and wasn't happy with detail loss on that configuration. The "big book" looks like a big help. I have noticed on some LVA plates they appear to have been printed on 3 hole paper and scanned but the work was phenomenal. I ...

Re: 1896-P with die scratches

I noticed there are no full coin images on the V38 VAM Page. Here they are from the discovery coin. @PacificWR could you drop these photos onto the page? Thanks in advance! 1896 V38 OB.jpg1896 V38 RV.jpg It is a done deal. The Wing Die gouges aren't part of the description. Wayne- do you want the H...

1896-P 14?

As there are no pictures and only a definition...

"Obverse III2 14 - 6 doubled above top loop as a dot on left and curved line joining top of loop and doubled slightly at bottom outside of lower loop"

Does this fit the bill... has a dot on left ?
