Re: Morgan 1921 VAM-77 = VAM-69A

If they're the same die pair, then someone with VAM 77 should look to see if the other markers from 69A are present. As pitting can develop out of nowhere, it's possible that VAM 77 is 69A without the pitting. There's a comment about pitting between the S and O on some specimens of VAM 77, so this i...

Re: Leroy Van Allen

Good to hear they are both doing well. Copy shops are probably closed, anyway, so even if he could and wanted to get out, he wouldn't be able to get the guide copied. Thanks for contacting him for all of us. (I took the liberty of adding to the subject. All too often, when the subject of a post is j...

You might want to add a picture of the die scratches shown at the US of PLURIBUS. This is the first place people go to verify this variety. Good luck!

Re: Can post-mint incuse damage have flow lines?

Here's a shot of the PMD I'm looking at zoomed out. I thought it curious that the damage would seem delimited by the die break... Speaking of which - I just noticed what looks slightly like a welding bead north and south of the break along the front of the neck. Is that normal for average across-th...

Re: 1885 O new VAM? doubled "ONE"

It's machine doubling, not a doubled die. The secondary letter parts are smashed and deformed. Take a look at the "Do You Think You Have a Doubled Die?" thread that's pinned at the top of the discussion forum.

Re: 1903 P Reverse Hub Doubling

It wasn't my coin, so I can't check, and it was quite a while ago, so I don't remember. Leroy will mention hub doubling just to be complete and to keep people from bringing it up to him again.

Re: Is this a 1922-P VAM-2BB or another one?

Very close, but not quite a match. That is a very common place for die cracks on Peace dollars. Most of the time, they're not strong enough to warrant being cataloged.

I think it is just cool seeing the mugs for folks I know but never met and others whom I have not seen in ages. You all suddenly become real people. Right.

Trying not to go out much right now. Trying to stay free of cooties, and all that. A few smaller orders were shipped a while ago. Lots of stuff will be shipped Saturday, and I'll send tracking numbers.

Re: 1887-p Morgan VAM-11 Question

It's supposed to be the center of the curve from the top in one diastema* and the upper point in the next one to the right. There's a picture on the 87 VAM 11 page. Lots of MPDs in 1887, and they're all available in EDS (some PL), too. * diastema = the gap between two teeth. As "dentil" and "denticl...
