Re: Help Identify VAM for 1878 CC

I found the line in the wing, plus a couple.of vertices ones. Also I see what like like eyelashes and a die mark in the Y, do you see it are those and are they also secondaries?

Re: Help Identify VAM for 1878 CC

I see the 22 resemblance. Didn't see a line through the wing or in the cap just what I posted in pictures. Maybe EDS or LDS?

Help Identify VAM for 1878 CC

Need help identifying this VAM. Looking through the list I haven't found one I think matches please help! There is a clash, doubling or scratch maybe under the nose, crumbled 4th star to the right of the date, an impression with possible die scratches under left wing and possibly polish lines under ...

1881 S

I wanna thank you all for your help on the coins I have submitted I really appreciate it. I want to submit this coin because I think it is a VAM 1D but the left 8 (spike in the upper left loop) also has an interesting feature where the 2 loops meet on the right side I cannot place. And the entire ra...

1891 O VAM 1A1 Worth

Hello all, just picked this coin up and was hoping I could get some help. I believe it's a 1891 O VAM 1A1. I am curious as to what grade this could be and / or what it would be worth?

Re: 1900 O VAM help

It's a VAM 21 family coin, no doubt. May be a little early for a 21D1. Checkout VAM 21E and see if the denticle impressions are still there under the Eagle's tail feathers. I can't tell exactly from your photo, but it's likely. I don't see the denticles under the tail. But I believe you are all rig...

1900 O VAM help

I have been trying to place the VAM on this coin and it feel like it hits a few. I see some 29A, 35A, and 52. There is a die crack in the date, O looks high (possible slight left) and there is what looks like a crack going from the left reverse star continously through right wing tip and then again ...

1880 O VAM help

This 1880 O looks like VAM 39A but it also looks like there are more die cracks, possible "In" clash and the mouth strikes me as a little off. Am I just seeing things or does anyone else see the same or more? Is it a mix of VAMs? Will take 2 posts for all pics. Thanks all!

Hey all I just got this 1902 O and the 9 looks closed to me but I wanted to get some.otger opinions. I can't really see anything that may be unique to this coin so if anyone else sees anything that would help VAM identifying I would appreciate the feedback. Thanks agin!

Re: 1879 CC Unique?

Is there a point on the coin you would like me to try and get a clearer picture of to help with your research? ShamShield First, I didn't mean to say VAM-2A in my last message, but VAM-2B. Second, I looked closer at your photos and no longer think it is just a 2B. It is hard with the condition of yo...

Re: 1878 CC

I didn't even see that page exists. Thank you for the help. I think I'm seeing more of the secondary pick ups of the VAM 22 including the die scratch in the left wing.
