Re: 82 O/S Die question

There is no indication that these were not SF dies returned to Philadelphia. Reverse dies could be, and were, carried over from year to year at the branch mints.

Re: 1922 Peace D over D?

Looks like just a worn mint mark. I don't know of any convincing repunched mint marks for Peace dollars. There's a 27-S/S listed, but I haven't seen one and the pictures aren't clear. Ok I will get some better images, but you don't see the shelf between the two stamps in the current images? If you'...

Not attributed on the holder. Someone posted it on a FB group this morning. 2nd finest known. I can put you in touch with the seller if interested at $9500

Re: 1882 GSA Carson city grand snake history.

I can't wait to see this one. It will sell for Big Money, but not more than the 86 die cap brockage. 40-50K for a GSA CC 25% off-center feels right to me. Then again, if it's the only GSA off-center being sold into this market, 75K wouldn't surprise me

If you're talking about the vertical band of stuff on Liberty's face, that's not a pitted die. That's damage to the coin.

Re: MPD and pitting advice.

The date was completely in the hub for 1878, so there are no MPDs. The stuff by the wing is just some light pitting.

Re: 1921 D VAM 1L[?] Is it 2, 3 or a new 4?

It is more pronounced. It matches the original VAM 1L. So which is it? The fact that it is difficult to say leads me to think the best solution may be to scrap the current 1L1, 1L2, and 1L3 and create new ones as I mentioned above, yours being 1L3. It wouldn't really be that disruptive, since most ...

Re: 1921 D VAM 1L[?] Is it 2, 3 or a new 4?

The listings are a bit of a mess, to say the least. All cite the die break at AM, which should really only be on the late die stage. What makes sense if there are to be 3 stages is (1) scribbles on a fresh die, (2) die break not fully developed, (3) full die break on M. The other stuff is noise and ...

For 79-S, start with the date, mint mark, and the leaves opposite the N in ONE.

I got Defender. Much of the analysis seemed on point, but I wonder how much my answers would change based on my mood at the time. I've done the test several times in different settings, always with the same result. There's probably limit to how many times you can do such a test before your answers ...
