Re: Is this a Gouge, scratch or something else?

Does it go from the field into the wing unchanged?
Can you zoom out a bit on that close-up?

Re: 1881o vam 50a/33a not

Really racking (wracking?) my memory here, but does your coin have the rim "cudlings"? If memory serves, they are on the obverse and I've never seen a 50a without them...
As far as clash strength goes, the 33b is a completely different animal than 50a...

Re: No one posts picks anymore... HERE'S A COUPLE!!

Recent addition to my Morgans, not exactly a pick, it was listed by the VAM (possibly by a regular from VAMWorld) but I liked it for the wear pattern. Seems to suggest possibly a tilted field not in the 1889o VAM 13a listing. jae_1889o_13a.break.jpg Well, I mean, it’s right there in black and… not ...

Morgan Spaghetti Vam (1878 S Vam 18) doesn’t appear on a “ List”.
Ummm, excuse me?!?! Maybe you’re just working on the wrong lists?? ;)

Re: 1901 O BOLD letter doubling on V 1A / 20

... Both t transfers cannot have happened during a single clash event. It doesn’t matter how rare a single t may or may not be. Correct, but two clashes can happen without a coin being struck between them. In that scenario, wouldn’t that mean that there is no MDS? EDS would be the two t transfer. L...

Re: Cost of making silver dollar dies 1887

You come up with some amazing history Roger!
Can't wait until you uncover the "We had to let one of our inspectors go today after realizing they were not performing their duties" letter from New Orleans dated sometime in 1888!!

Re: 1901 O BOLD letter doubling on V 1A / 20

Wow, so much craziness in those listings. First off, I'm sure I, along with many others over time, have questioned why the ear gouge wasn't worthy of a non-"v1" listing, yet here it is in v20, listed since 1979, apparently. Secondly, there is a note on the 1a page that says this can't be listed as v...

89-O? Crumbled stars, no?
Haha, believe it or not, it hit me that I posted that incorrectly while driving home from work!
Yup, 89-O v13b!

Re: OLD R & I Ratings Discontinued

It's unfortunate that the I&R ratings became so relied upon (even if it should have been completely expected...), because I can't not chuckle every time I see an eBay listing with "OMG, R4!!!!" . It should be simple to place a desirability rating on VAMs, but there are far too many variables involve...

No one posts picks anymore... HERE'S A COUPLE!!

I don't look for VAMs nearly as much as I used to, but you know what they say about blind squirrels, so here are a couple I've stumbled over in the last few months: This one I bought because, well, for anyone that knows me it's pretty self-explanatory!

Re: Need an assist from someone site savvy

Thanks JB and Fogie! Now for the explanation: For a while the 29b was listed as "may or may not have a clashed I", which I thought was ridiculous because having or not having letter transfer is a defining feature for a listing, but I couldn't see fit to include it if it "may not" have the feature th...

Need an assist from someone site savvy

Could I trouble someone to add the notations to the 1921-S VAM-29B page and listing that it is included in the WOW! VAMs?
Thanks in advance!
Also, if JC or Brent see this, can you make the same changes in the registry?
Thanks again!
