Re: I need help, with my 1887

Nice score.

Mike, these were the four Morgan Dollars I was talking about. I had to do some serious horse trading to close the deal.

Beautiful coins. Guess I need to get out more and have a look see. Thanks.John🐍
Thank you John. The two MS-65 1878-P PCGS slabbed Morgan Dollars I left on the table were both VAM-186.. Sure wish I could have picked one of them up, but my coin budget was shot by then.

Don't feel too bad about the 34-D V4, I got fooled plenty of times while learning this one.

:shock:
John, for someone who hardly ever takes a walk on the dark side it was a good learning experience.

Re: I need help, with my 1887

I agree. It is either a VAM-27 or VAM-27A. Yours maybe an LDS with the die crack running down to the O in DOLLAR. I do have a VAM-27A , but I do not remember the die crack. I'll have to pull mine.

Grand Slam on the 225A
Thanks partsman. Of the five coins I selected this was the one I really wanted the most. I traded my MS-62 in. The toning (while not a monster) is awesome. It is a true Gem.

Re: One good day of pickin!

Thanks Bert for including the photo's of your VAM-3 in this post. If we put the date doubling aside and focus on the profile doubling my coin only has slight doubling. It comes no where close to Bert's photo of profile doubling. So clearly my coin is not a VAM-4.

No Doubling of the rays or profile. Please look at the V3 and V4 pics. Or I'll be happy to send you a V3 to look at.

John
John, what would work even better is if you can post close up photo's of each number in the date and the last three rays.

Re: One good day of pickin!

I have included two photo’s below to illustrate what I am talking about. If we use LVA’s definition of machine doubling then the photo of the 1922 peace dollar is a hallmark example. Looking at the photo one can see the sharp (clearly defined} edges followed by the flat area to the left of each numb...

Re: One good day of pickin!

Thanks for the feed back guys. I am 100 percent certain of the VAM's on the first four VAMs. However, since I hardly ever walk on the darkside I can not say the same thing on the fifth VAM. I hear what you are saying about machine doubling, but so many of description and marker's match up. Double la...

One good day of pickin!

Stopped by the local coin gallery about three weeks ago. Walked over to the display case that contain Slabbed Morgan & Peace Dollars and was shocked to see what was inside. On the top shelf were five 1878-P PCGS slabbed MS-65 Morgan Dollars. In addition, there were five PCGS (green label) MS-64 1880...
