Re: Edited post 1899-O VAM 11 or 11A

Thank you Sir ! Its fine I'm not gonna loose any sleep over it . i Just thought the definition between crack and break applied. All the hub bub about the metal at TED on the discovery coin looked like it just took a small hit in just the right place to me anyway . :D

Re: 1899-O vam 11A possible Planchet flaw or just a scratch ?

Ya I agree with everything you said :lol: I think it's an 11 A as well . And the other thing is probably a scratch. I did not even notice it until I took those pictures. In looking through the VW pages I got the impression that some of this use to have a different number that had been changed and de...
