Re: How Morgan Dollars Became Indian Ruppees

Fascinating to learn this!
I knew the U.S. sold a LOT of silver to Britain during WWI for geopolitical reasons in India, but did not know it was used to make coins. We almost need to consider the 1919 Rupee for honorary status in the Morgan Dollar set.

Your die cracks + feed finger lines tells me it's 1CL2.
Pretty coin.

Feed finger gouges 'wandered' a bit during the course of their lives; photos on the attribution pages aren't a must match exactly proposition.

does 21-D JOH-22 have a VAM #?

I know it's an esoteric question, but with all the excellent cracks on both sides I'm hoping maybe someone has already sent one to @vampicker or @messydesk for evaluation.

Re: Please consider for DISCOVERY

He is just following the new DC guideline of posting it here for more eyes to evaluate first, as opposed to simply sending it to @vampicker or @messydesk where it might slow things down in their lives. I say bravo for following directions.

Re: Rotated Reverse Morgans

Rotation alone does not make for a VAM. Other factors specify which VAM it is; rotation is just a bonus.

Re: 1921-D VAM 1G: are these still unknown?

I'd just be guessing, and doubt that would be particularly helpful at this point. At a minimum, I'd want to see more examples for some context. Do these occur on other die pairs? In other series? Thanks John. I haven't seen them on other die pairs or in other series... just on VAM 1G. But it is on ...

1921-D VAM 1G: are these still unknown?

Part way down the attribution page for 1921-D VAM 1G http://ec2-13-58-222-16.us-east-2.compute.amazonaws.com/wiki/1921-D_VAM-1G is a photo of strange 'dents' under the denticles above IBU on the obverse, and a note that says: "George Powell made a cool find in July 2004.

Re: TWO (2) RARITIES FOR SALE

A label that says just Strong could be either VAM 3 or 4. A label that says Weak is almost always a VAM 5... except I would be 0% surprised if an EDS VAM 3 or 4 turned up in one.

Re: Check out this 1878 CC Morgan silver dollar

Value is anyone's guess, but it's not particularly rare so my estimation is there is little to no VAM premium. You're probably in the $400-$425 range.
