Re: 1901-O VAM-25 Slanted Date, Polishing Lines Bands Wings

"Sorry for posting photos that nobody desires." ??? I don't get what you meant nor that I care. The coin photo you posted here, does not look to be VAM-25 to me. First of all, the date position is different than VAM-25A. I don't think VAM-25 is listed by die classification since the Reverse descript...

OT - Get well soon 1878mimmo

About a week or so ago, Gary said he had a heart procedure recently. Not hearing from him for the past week, I texted him. His son responded the text and said he is in a hospital. He is doing fine, and hopefully be release tomorrow. Get well soon, bud!

Re: 1879 s #2

I can't match the obverse with any of my other 79s. But I did confirm v92 shared rev die with v1e. I have added that info to the pages under comment section.

Looks like you might have an unlisted pair. Is there a letter transferred?

Re: 1879-S VAM-78 and VAM-94 related?

JR, you are correct. I should clarify what I meant by saying left over. What I think was that after using the dies (VAM-1E for obverse and VAM-78 for reverse) the Mint probably put them aside for awhile. Then later rebasin the obverse die and reworked the reverse die which now has been rusted and pa...

Re: 1879-S VAM-78 and VAM-94 related?

Thanks for the confirmation, Brian. That makes VAM-94 very interesting since both the obverse and reverse die are left over from another pairing. Reworked and reuse for making the v94. The question is why. Did the mint ran out of dies? Was v94 one of the last 79s in production or maybe was the last?...

Re: Anyone know what is going on the edge on this 1889P?

I forgot which VAM this is, but they all seems to have that look. Very similar to what happened to 83o v22a and 1900p v24.

Re: 1879-S VAM-78 and VAM-94 related?

Here is why I think they shared reverse die. VAM-78: Touched-up leaves by ONE http://ec2-13-58-222-16.us-east-2.compute.amazonaws.com/w/images/f/f4/Jb_79sv78-6.jpg VAM-94: Touched-up leaves by ONE with acid treated (LDS?) http://ec2-13-58-222-16.us-east-2.compute.amazonaws.com/w/images/0/0c/Jb_79sv9...
