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...

Re: Collar Clash

I don't know how many times the mint worker do adjustment on the press machine. But with an average of 200k coins struck per die pair, the answer is yes.

Re: Possible new finds

Maybe it's a 5 and a small u.
I highly doubt the mint possessed a tiny "5" and a "u" shaped die stamps; then stamped them into the working die to create that S mintmark.

Re: Collar Clash

Then what is it called when the denticles are called when they are mashed 1/2 way in a semicircular fashion?
Imo, that's an error due to ejection impact or die slide when the coin was ejected right after struck.

Re: Possible new finds

On the obverse, on the shaft of the B is what looks like the right half of the O in DOLLAR and in the upper and lower holes of the B you can see what appears to be the left half of the vertical shaft of the first L in DOLLAR from serif to serif. The letters (B, L or O, or whichever) are the lowest ...

Re: Anyone recognize this 79-S?

The more I looked at it, the more I think it is a serious evil mimic for the reverse die.
V137 mm seems to be slightly higher and more to the left than yours.

Re: Morgan 1885-O Broken S

The mint polished the die when they prepared them. Unfortunately, sometime they polished it a bit too much. The result is some devices got thinner. Compare 85-O VAM-4 vs VAM-1C. Look at the "trust" from the full coin photo. You can definitely see that the VAM-1C is thinner than VAM-4. So as mentione...
