Re: VAMweenies Rise

pardon me, but what is there to comprehend being "smart enough"? this is a reference for all the varieties. one looks up the date/mint combo and then the variety list comparing what they have to the detailed known possibilities. and then hopefully identifies theirs. am I misusing this site/forum or ...

legitimate 1889 CC?

I couldn't find a reverse with the CC set the way it is here. I did find what looks like a lowered second C that looks fatter at its 'belly' but it is not set as low as on this coin. http://ec2-13-58-222-16.us-east-2.compute.amazonaws.com/w/images/c/cb/1889-CC_RonH_VAM-2A_REV_03042012a.jpg I'm think...

Re: performing exact search

thanks for your reply. yeah silo'd search is oft notoriously difficult to get practical success from. But thank you for considering it. vam is definitely a term to avoid ;) but running the search with duckduckgo actually sort of gives the desired result since this forum is publically indexed. site:h...

performing exact search

Hi messydesk, Love the site and forum. Great stuff! Thank you! Question: how do i perform an exact string search? +ing seems to return reordered matching keywords, i.e. +1890 +o +vam returns 1890 o vam vam 1890 o etc. and in any matching order irrespective of relative distance of each keyword from e...

Re: Imaging my coins

Scanners do not capture luster. Use a camera. As for what camera, as well as other equipment, that depends on your budget and goals. I could write a book on this, but someone else already has, and I have other stuff to do. Start with a smartphone camera, with the phone about 5" above your coins. Re...

Re: Which 1891 O vam could this be?

thank you lured! you got it, i'm certain! maybe the title of that vam should include "right shifted mintmark" or similar. subsequent question, if pcgs doesn't list this vam, https://www.pcgs.com/coinfacts/coin/1891-o-1-vam-1a-clashed-e/133938 is it safe to say it's pretty ordinary and doesn't comman...

Which 1891 O vam could this be?

Hi all, Newly afflicted vammer here - lovely community and repository of die varieties here - love it! I believe I've looked through all the title descriptions of the 1891 O vams, and many but not all of the reverse pics but could not find what I have I think. Which vam is this? Or could it be a fak...
