Re: What is the correct term?

I did not say that. Think about what Charles Barder proved and what Mr. Downing is saying. Without a doubt this proves that it was not a soft die. No question.

Re: What is the correct term?

The resolution to this was the first gas furnace being installed in the New Orleans mint. I can show those mint records to.

Re: What is the correct term?

I'll tell you what Charles Barder proved. He proved the dies were not soft. That's what the mintage of 264,000 and 405,000 prove.

Re: What is the correct term?

Oh my! Close the front door. I think you need to go back and reread Charles Barber’s letter. Start with page 2, right at the top. Charles Barber did not say the dies were soft. It was the branch Mints that said they were soft and what did Charles Barber do? He put one of the dies in question (1876 h...

Re: What is the correct term?

Boy, this just keeps getting better. I have given you every opportunity to list your facts for your unproven theory, but you can’t, because you have none. In addition, I have even provided a roadmap for you to use so you can see all the facts that you missed, but you ignore it. So, the question is w...

Re: What is the correct term?

Now that’s interesting [“The utter absurdity of all this meandering argument with no conclusion”]. You still don’t get that you missed a lot of facts. Even when someone lays at a road map for you to follow. You refuse to do it. For starters you ignore fact that the 1889-P VAM-23B Die sequence #3 & #...

Re: What is the correct term?

It’s not all about the 1889-P VAM-23A/VAM-23B obverse die. Part of it is, but part of it has to do with the reverse die. There is no doubt that the deepest clashed IN known in the Morgan Dollar series created a lot of die stress on the obverse die. Add two more hard clashing events (1 on die sequenc...

Re: What is the correct term?

Not even close. How many coins did you submit to LVA? Four is that correct? This is one of the things you keep missing, in order to let the dies, do the talking and see all the facts they present, you need a total of 19 coins. Your submittal was not even close to that. So how could you have even hal...

Re: What is the correct term?

Oh yes it does. It has everything to do with letting the reverse die talk to you. It shows more of the facts and additional ones that I have been talking about. When you did your submittal to LVA you knew very little about the facts behind the reverse die. All you proved was the reverse die for the ...

Re: What is the correct term?

That is EXACTLY what I did and the 'softer than normal obverse' is what I found as the most likely explanation. You already know I've looked at the various stages in hand at length. I'm hard pressed to see an actual conclusion from you beyond repeatedly saying I'm wrong. I'll repeat my question sin...

Re: What is the correct term?

I'll ask again - why did the obverse and reverse react differently? If you can't or won't answer, then this discussion is pointless I have said this several times before, so here we go again, part of the answer to your question is letting the 1889-P VAM-23A/23B, VAM-7, VAM-7a, VAM-7B1 and VAM-7B2 r...

Re: What is the correct term?

You can not actually know the number of coins struck by this die - the best you can do is make a guess based on apparent scarcity. The VAM 23A is legitimately rare, while the various stages of VAM 23B are scarce at best. It is clear they are harder to find than many other 89 varieties. I do not acc...

Re: What is the correct term?

Ok. That big chunk that you are referring to on the 1889-P VAM-23B is the LDS of die sequence #4 and LVA in his plate photo list it as a “Die Chip”, not a die crack or a die break. Next, “What about the big chunks at the bases of multiple letters?” LVA calls it die roughness, not a die crack or a di...

Re: What is the correct term?

Ok! Let’s look at a couple more facts. Shown below is page 2 of your September 2020 letter from LVA and jumping down to paragraph 4 it shows you sold the soft die theory to LVA and he bought it. In the letter he does mention the possibility of the 1889-P VAM-23A/VAM-23B as not going through the die ...

Re: What is the correct term?

So what other plausible cause is there for the clearly atypical clashing and erosion this obverse experienced? How do you known an improperly hardened die can't strike a bunch of coins? The theory (and yes, it is a theory) about a clash involving a softer than normal die is a possible explanation f...

Re: What is the correct term?

Let’s keep in mind that the theory, improperly annealed obverse die for the 1889-P VAM-23A/VAM23B has not been proven. It is just a theory. When one let’s, the die do the talking another story starts to emerge. There is no doubt that the obverse die for VAM-23A/VAM-23B shows major die stress (weakne...
