Re: 1881o vam 50a/33a not

Brian, I think yours is VAM-50A. Is there a tiny patch of rust/pittings by 1st L of DOLLAR on yours?

Also, VAM-50A mintmark is higher than VAM-33B. Clashing looks almost identical, but definitely different location. Just compare the clashed marking at back of the hair/cap.

Re: More acid... new 1879-S VAM-147

@fogie - thank you and sorry no extra yet :D

@morganman - It's inevitable for the number of varieties to go up when we do extensive die study. And yes, the acid variety is very addicting :lol:

More acid... new 1879-S VAM-147

Could someone please add to SSDC Registry the new 1879-S VAM-147?
And also add it on the SSDC "Acidic VAMs" set.
Thanks

Re: Another "re-identified" VAM - 1921 VAM 3FS "Discovery" now listed as VAM3ED???

The shear numbers of 21 vams is super crazy and lends to much confusion along the
way
The goal of the VAM system is to number and catalog every known die variety by date and mint mark.

Re: Help with 1882 S Gouge in "D"

I cant tell if it is raised or sunken but if I were forced to pick one, I want to say raised.
Look sunken or recessed to me.
There is zero indication on out side of D, it is completely retained inside the D if that helps
Struck-thru is unique and can be any shape, size, etc.

Re: Again, I find I need some help w/1879-S

I agreed with Juan. Very hard to tell.
At first my thoughts was V44, but no sign of polishing line inside the L.

Could be V79 based on the mm and engraved leave (btw, not acid treated imo).

Re: Possible new finds

You said "known mintmark styles". Even if this is a known mintmark style, it tells me three things... 1. No one has investigated why the S is so misshapen. 2. No one has found a coin that shows why it is misshapen. 3. There is a common belief that things like this can't happen. No one is questionin...
