Help narrowing down 1899 O

Hi all! I'm having some trouble with this 1899 O. I can't even tell if the 9's are open or closed, the difference in the pictures I'm seeing seem so subtle! Same issue with the mintmark, is it high? normal? slightly right? slightly up? I have no idea! I need some pros to help point me in the right d...

Re: 1883-O VAM 12 Confirmation?

Yes this does appear to be a VAM 12. The dot is hard to see on your picture of obverse. This VAM does not have a lot to go by. The polish lines headed southeast from the hair to the earlobe and the stage of the broken lower loop of the 3 appear correct. The mm placement appears correct. This is an ...

1884 O VAM 43?

Hi all! I believe my 1884-O is a VAM 43. The doubling on the ear seems to be only on the lower inside, not the lobe. The only other noticeable marking on the coin appears to be a polishing line between the neck and left wing on the eagle, not mentioned on the page. It was hard to capture since the s...

1883-O VAM 12 Confirmation?

Hi all! I am fairly certain my 1883-O is VAM 12. Just wanted to check with you all to confirm that it is not another "O set left" VAM. I'll attach some pictures below. I am not seeing any doubling in the ear which is giving me some trouble. I might be barely seeing a bulge to the right of the wreath...

Re: Help with 1879-S VAM 21

Hi Welcome to Vamworld Do you have a picture of the hair above date And a picture of the leaves at ONE on reverse Yes! I have attached those pictures here. I have struggled to see the engravings on the leaves, but I think it's that I don't really know what I'm looking for. I also had trouble gettin...

Help with 1879-S VAM 21

Hi all! This is my first post as I have just recently gotten into VAMs. One VAM I am fairly confident I've identified is my 1879-S as VAM 21. I will attach some photos to help confirm. My main question is what is going on around the 18 in the date? Is it just strange looking damage, or clashing? I h...
