1896 Vam 4/4a

Noticed on the Top 100 value list published earlier this year that the 1896 Vam 4 and 4a are missing

Good ballpark value for a raw MS60?

Re: What is the correct term?

I asked because the 1889 23 A/B, Vam 30 and Vam 49 all have the same atypical die erosion. Could have been a bad batch of die material, like our wonderful 70's cars, just rusted sooo bad. But the Vam 30 has a brush pattern of this erosion by the neck, bolstering the argument that the die polisher us...

Re: peculiar 21d reed queation

I promise I will never use the term 'mini center reed' John, I never meant to squirrel you. I simply have a very unique coin and found this reeding on the edge. In one of the first contacts I had on ANA's discussions, I was reminded that every coin has 3 sides, so I check now. I appreciate your dre...

Re: peculiar 21d reed queation

Thanks for the advise and explanation. Thinking deeper about it, VAM's are dies, not reeds.

I will quit opening slabs now, LOL

peculiar 21d reed queation

Picked up a nice 21d and checking all 3 sides, we discovered a peculiar raised mini-reed.

Does anyone have the explanation for this and what it would correctly be called?

Thanks in advance

What was the cycle time? (ship to and received back)

I still like the curved top on the holders, it would be nice if the VAM # were up there too to find at a glance.

Re: What is the correct term?

Thanks-

I've also got a weird reed that I need to take a pic of and that I would like to know about as well, and what it's called. It's like a mini raised reed in-between regular reeds on a 21D.

Be safe

What is the correct term?

Wayne has got me down that '89 23B rabbit hole. What is the correct term for the orange peel type texture that fills the field on latter die stages?

Re: VAM PowerPoint presentations? Please share...

In conjunction with the 23A, the stages of the 23B are also economically obtainable die stages, not to mention that the 23 is an assumed coin? If I understand the methodology that the 23A had to come from somewhere and that out there somewhere is a 23 just waiting to be added to the VamWorld!

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?
