Based on the rotation, the marking you pointed out is impossible to be part of the "E".
Imo is just a scuffed.

Re: 1879S VAM 1h

I think you both (vamsterdam and Vam-mysterio) are correct. From what I can tell, the sequence of Reverse die use is: VAM-1D (ms60PL) - the reverse has no clashed mark and no polishing lines in the field. VAM-XX - this is the missing piece yet to be found VAM-1H (ms61PL) - the reverse has remnant of...

Re: Guess the 'clashing through the snow'?

One of Lee's favorite. Part of a very short set, and this R7 ended up more like an R5.

Re: Explaination for handling and reissue of reverse dies

Very interesting. We know there are quite a few 1881-S reverse with fine pittings.

Re: 1888-P VAM7 stage help, please?

Jonnie - in my opinion, what you have is VAM-7B. VAM-7 series really needs an overhaul. I have a 7A and 7D if anyone wants to borrow and get the entire series back to Leroy for his review.

Re: 1888-P VAM7 stage help, please?

Stage 1 (VAM-7) - has a nice a clear gouges above left wing up to UST. Stage 1.5 - I think this is your coin. Stage 2 (VAM-7A) - is what posted on VAM-7A page with the gouge lines added as describe on the page. Now the confusing part: Stage 3 (VAM-7B) - description on reverse: "Lines above eagle’s l...

Re: 1888 P Morgan with VAM-1B...and more?

If you want to self attribute a "P" mint morgan (1883-1904), you need to starts with the date position. You'll see that list gets narrow down tremendously.

Truly amazing and unique.
Reminds me of 98o v20 as being another unique piece.

Re: Odd things on 1921-P D1s

Great die study Dennis.
Out of 44mil+ mintage, I'm sure they have a few working hub made for each D1 and D2 reverse.
Not sure if they minted D1 or D2 first.
But your study shows that apparently they also do not share Obv working hub.

Re: more help needed for 1879-S

Nice v98 reverse.

Big thanks to Juan for his die study. More and more data from the study shows for 79s they don't have enough rev dies. They use and reuse the rev die on multiple obverse for many of them. Which makes sense why they ended up using rev 78 dies.
