I posted photos in VAMWorld 1.0 showing the mm moved in relation to the extra ray, nobody cared so I dropped the issue and sold the coins. Oh well.
The mint mark was hand-punched, so that alone really wasn't any sort of indicator of the ray position.

35-S Peace Dollar Extra Rays

I had suspected for a long time that the extra ray on some 1935-S Peace dollars was actually not in the hub, but hand-engraved. I finally had the opportunity to check this out tonight as a pair of 35-S with extra ray crossed my desk. It looks like I may have been right. The attached is an overlay of...

Re: "Buy the coin not the holder"

Happens all the time. Easy data-entry error to make. I'd like to think they actually catch these when coins are sitting in QA, but most bulk orders I've sent have one coin mislabeled that sends me into a panic trying to match up orders until I find it. This time was no exception.

Re: 1934-P VAM 1F

WOW!!! Those squiggles are killer. Not to piss anyone off but that should be an Elite 30 or Top 50, in my opinion. Say, does the top 50 and elite 30 ever change? I know the John Roberts does. Thanks.🐍 Chase lists do not change except for corrections to errors or expansion to include other die pairs...

Re: PCGS re-holder special.. blah

Jeff Oxman used to make regular VAM consulting visits to PCGS when Mike Faraone was in charge of attributions. But that was in a faraway time and place, wasn't it? :cry: Yup. I asked Brett Charville about using outside consultants for varieties a while back. He said it was something they planned on...

Re: Not secure !!!!

The site has never been "secure." I will probably change that as FB doesn't allow nonsecure links to be posted anymore. There are no transactions requiring security certificates (credit card, bank accounts, PHI, other private data) on this site, as it's simply a wiki and a message board, which is wh...

Re: 1889-P VAM-23A Grade is in

The SSDC Registry only shows coins that were explicitly added to the registry. It does not harvest them from TPGs.

Re: 1889cc vam 7 counterfeit

My impression when I first saw one of these was that it was a sandwich coin, but if there are more, I guess it's a die struck fake.

Small O, seemingly heavy clash on the right side, wonky white balance. Shouldn't be a tough one. This is where I encourage you have have a go before asking others.
