Are you trying to post RAW files by any chance? (that's what I deduce from the .jpeg extension, rather than .jpg

Thanks John @iceman
That isn't a bad looking coin at all.

I hope the hammer price totally freaked out the consignor!

Re: 1921-D VAM 5C question

I'd call it VAM 5C EDS, since it's its own die pair. The description on my label would include something like, "early die stage before break in S forms." I could possibly be convinced to split it into 5C1 (Scribbles only) and 5C2 (Scribbles + break) since they're easily distinguishable and you woul...

are eBay buyers clueless?

Re: New Discovery

I'm tagging @fogie to let him know; he'll take care of it.

Also, you need to post the Discovery description and plate images you received, so an attribution page can be created by either Fogie or @PacificWR or @messydesk .
