Re: Pcgs vams sold

Larry,

Great job on collecting, and on your PCGS sets. Bet, it was hard to part with the 1889-P VAM-23A.

Re: 1889 VAM 15 extra ears on 8's. LDS?

The die chips in both 8's and the faulty logo punch (9 in date) are a big tip off. Is the coin clashed and have you checked for a double ear?

Re: 1889-P Very Far Date, second 8 doubled, open high 9, strongly clashed obverse die, No clash reverse. Help Please

The VAM-9 and VAM-38 are probably dup listings. Thanks for the additional photos. Think you may have an MDS. Can you take some shots of the UTF's and bow?

Re: 1889-P Very Far Date, second 8 doubled, open high 9, strongly clashed obverse die, No clash reverse. Help Please

Thanks for the close-up photos. The die crack in the 9 in the date is not really a die crack, it is a faulty logo punch (9) and can be found on numerous 1889-P VAMs. VAM-9, VAM-23A, VAM-23B, VAM-38 (open 9), VAM-3, VAM-7, VAM-7A, VAM-7B1, VAM-7B2 and the 1889-O VAM-13B (crumbled stars) to name a few...

Re: 1889-P Very Far Date, second 8 doubled, open high 9, strongly clashed obverse die, No clash reverse. Help Please

Can you take a close-up of the 9 in the date? Look at 9 in the date closely and see if you notice something just a little bit different. Finding an un-clashed Reverse in the 1889-P series is not uncommon. I think it says something about the 1889-P Reverse dies. Here are a few examples of un-clashed ...
