Re: Long-nock confusion.

For 1978 VAMs it will be B1 or B2 Reverse. B1 being LN. Guys go nuts collecting 78 dollars. :lol:
There is also A & C Reverse Dies. A lot of happenings in the first year.

Thanks, John.
Perhaps someone with page editing privileges can add these to the V112 page. Pete's V112 post also had some decent pictures that could be added as well.

Re: Had an 1878-S VAM 112 on my desk

Nice find for someone. Did it by chance have a few die chips on the eagle's breast ? I also noticed it didnt have the gouge that Leroy pointed out through the S of STATES . Mine has the same polishing lines around the S and no gouge.

78S VAM 112 Struck Through ?

Opinions on Mint Struck or PMD ? Grade is subjective and if you have an opinion I will post results when it gets back from ANACS. Also have a V-113 and V-1i with a few other gems of 78 to go out as soon as they do another Dollar Frenzy !!
Crappy pictures from a cheap cell phone, I know.

Re: 1878 S Vam 112

Thanks Pete, If it wasnt for your post and the pictures of the die chips then I would have passed it by quickly as just another fish on the bay. I'm hoping it is a struck through at neck/chin. MS 61-ish , there are two good bag marks on face and neck. Am I correct than this is no longer a Wiki where...

Thanks for confirming, Lew. I had second thoughts after I hit the post button. PMD in the sweet spot had me questioning everything.

Re: 1878 S Vam 112

I remember this find and needed to get better pictures of full coin and the breast chips. I remembered this post had pictures. Surprised none of those great pictures made it to the VAM 112 Page. Great find, Pete. The Sucketh be with you on it.

Re: 1878 S TIUST, which VAM?

19, 35, 74, and 93. Your coin was struck early in the progression as the serif on the R disappears in later pairings. I've said before the VAM can almost be identified by the state of the R. Good luck in your quest to VAM your coin.

Your welcome. I used to have most of them memorized. What this date mint really breaks down into is engraved wing feather or un-engraved wing feathers. On the engraved coins it further breaks down to the broken or not R in TRUST. Un-engraved wing feathers is where the fun begins. Craig and Leroy's G...

Re: 1878S VAM-31.....??????

29 and 31 share the same obverse die. The gouge in the U can be seen from space.
MM location, mintmark location, and mint mark location.
