Re: Ebay

EBay doesn't really know what the rules or laws are, and it applies them at whim. Whether the auction is allowed to run or not is anyone's guess.

Re: 2021 Morgan and Peace dollars

Can't say I'm not disappointed. There's no surcharge beneficiary for this issue and they said the markup over materials and production cost would be minimal, and the production cost sure isn't $55+ per coin. They also didn't fix the 0 and overall spacing in the date on the Peace dollar. I'll probabl...

Re: Very Late Stage 1921-D Vam 2B

VAM 2B as originally specified. I would call anything without the break above the M like yours and early die stage of it.

Re: who can make a die crack map?

I've got a reMarkable (tablet) that is phenomenal for doing this. If you send me pictures, I can easily mark them up and send them back. That is, if you're talking about pictures of coins... not your, um, reverse side on some scanner... It's actually best to start with the blank template photos and...

Re: 2021 Morgan and Peace dollars

The US Mint just listed the release dates for the 2021 Morgan and Peace dollars, no photos or prices yet. They will be staggered releases depending on mint mark, starting May 24. Do you suppose they will get VAM numbers eventually? Chances are there will be no varieties that anyone cares about. If ...

Re: D1 1921-P cracks mystery

What I find interesting is that it's a 21-P with the "look" of a 21-S.

Re: New 1921 Morgan ?

Well, they are consistent with this variety. I don't even count it as a screw-up when one comes back in the wrong holder in a bulk order.

Re: 1889 o VAM 1A2 Morgan

The only photo I have of this one is the clashed E for the label. The coin is a bit "crunchy," so not every clash is going to show up as strongly as marks on the coin. I really can't tell from the photos, but I think the easiest way to differentiate is going to be whether there is a single or double...

Re: 1889 o VAM 1A2 Morgan

Could you show the g clash? I’m seeing a vam 1a1. Maybe I’m missing something. I was thinking the same thing Brian. That’s why I Refered to it as an 89-O. But then I figured that I’m missing something because it was attributed by JB. Could be a "mechanical error" on my part. I'll fix it if it is, o...

Re: In memorial

Sad news, and a bit of a surprise. I met him a few times at some FUN shows a few years back. Really nice guy. I hadn't seen around here for a few weeks and was unaware of any health problems he may have had. I bought a few coins from him last year.

Re: 1878 VAM-39 B to A transition point?

Looks like you have 39A. The big "shark fin" scratch spanning the d and w is missing from your coin. The scratches you show in the same area are weaker on the picture of the 39B.
