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...

Re: 1882-S VAM-36A/37A die chip wing tip

Thank you for the respond, but I'm more confused now. On my coin, the obverse clearly shows a vertical die scratch above top right of I in LIBERTY. And the Phrygian cap is slightly doubled at top edge. This coin has to be VAM-36 obverse die. The reverse has the tiny die chip at top of right wing. No...

Re: 1882-S VAM-36A/37A die chip wing tip

Chris, I know what you meant, LOL. Let's tackle this one by one. My coin has this die chip on the wing tip. But the Obverse is a dead match to v36/36a. Could you or someone please double check if this die chip is in fact on your v37a coin? http://ec2-13-58-222-16.us-east-2.compute.amazonaws.com/w/im...

Re: 1882-S VAM-36A/37A die chip wing tip

Also, on VAM-36 page, there is plate photo showing polishing lines by NIT. I think based on description, this plate photo belongs to VAM-37A.

1882-S VAM-36A/37A die chip wing tip

One of the photo on VAM-37A shows die chip at end of right wing. Well, my coin has that, but I'm pretty sure mine is v36A. So is this reverse photo with die chip wing tip shown on VAM-37A should be for 36A? Or ?
