Re: 1889-P VAM-23 Series Flowchart

Several VAMWorld members have requested I develop an Attribution Guide for the Die Sequences for the 1889-P VAM-23B. The format I have selected for the attribution guide will show each die sequence side by side and contain descriptions for each die sequence. Once completed, the attribution guide sho...

Mike 7E,

Give me two or three days to pull my DC's from the SDP and we will go over both VAMs.

Brand New (1/7/23) 1889-P VAM-23A/23B Update Part III

This is the third update on what really happened on the 1889-P VAM-23A/VAM-23B. As stated in my previous updates: The Reverse VAM description for the 1889-P VAM-23A list, “No die clash marks on reverse die very unusual, especially for such strong die clash marks on obverse.” and for the 1889-P VAM-2...

Re: 1889-P VAM-23 Missing Link has been found

The significance of finding the first three confirmed 1889-P VAM-23’s provides a factual basis that renders any 1889-P VAM-23, VAM-23A and VAM23B with a reference to the former 1889-P VAM-5G inaccurate. As the discoverer of the 1889-P VAM-5G, I never did buy into the official Reverse description tha...

Re: 1889-P VAM-23 Missing Link has been found

Happy New Year and Congrats to Wayne and Andy! Great work with perseverance and evidence. I guess all that's left to find on the V23 series will be a stage 6? Gotta keep you busy! Just think for a second Mark... it took 25 (VAM-23A) years and 22 (VAM-23B) years to get to this point and then everyth...

Re: 1889-P VAM-23 Missing Link has been found

One of the things most difficult to do.... find the original VAM of a series or the discovery coin. I'm still hunting the elusive 1891 o VAM 14 to try and close the VAM tree for my study. Looking forward to your photos.... Thanks. It took 25 long years to find one (andywoj00 coin). Keep up the hunt.

1889-P VAM-23 Missing Link has been found

For the last 25 years, since the 1889-P VAM-23A was first discovered there has been a missing link. One that nobody has ever found.... until now. I just finished verifying it. That missing link is the 1889-P VAM-23. It is the final missing puzzle piece. Detailed photos will be provided. This is big ...

Great study on a cool series.

If you send me the 23A I will see if I concur with your overall finding.

And before you send it just know you might not get it back!!!!!

Love that coin

Thanks Mitch. Not a chance on the VAM-23A, but I could send you a Reversed clashed VAM-23B. :)
