Re: 1921 Morgan

This is really odd. That is a good scribbles shot, but I can't match it to anything in the scribbles guide. VAM 23 looks kind of close but...

The stuff inside the ear is very common on D1 reverse VAMs. In fact it may have been part of the master die.

Re: 1921 Morgan

Comparison with other 1921 Morgans is the easiest way. Wide reeding coins become very obvious that way.

Re: 1921 Morgan

Thanks for the pixs. The 2nd one has promise (the diagonal thing in the right opening). VAMs 1T and 1Z are the closest I can come right now.
I presume you have already checked to see whether the reeding is normal or wide?

Re: 1921 Morgan

Can you post a photo or two of the scribbles zones – the recessed areas above the talons on either side of the eagle's right (viewer's left) leg?

Re: Cast Counterfeit or PMD?

My first reaction is it was totally immersed in an acid of some kind, like the product that is used to restore dates on worn-out Buffalo nickels.

Re: High grade Bunny coin

There are many 1921-Ps whose attributions are based upon the characteristics of stars, or written descriptions only, or finger feed gouges, or displaced field break judgement calls, or "two fer" discoveries that presume the existence of something, that I question the validity of. And as long as I'm ...

And the verdict is ..... guilty. I did this one and got it wrong. If you ever want it fixed, just toss it in with an order and note that I said this one was a freebie.

Would a special pedigree option be possible? Something like "J.R. Do-Over Limited Edition"? :lol:

I'd be interested in knowing the cert number off Dennis's VAM 1 holder.

The cert number is 6107745.

Re: High grade Bunny coin

That would be a huge mistake, considering VAM 44 has a D2 reverse.
But I do have the VAM 29A mistake here on my desk.

You mean like putting a 1921-P VAM 29A wide reeding in a holder that says VAM 1? :lol:

trying to vet another 1921-P D1

I've hit another 1921-P D1 reverse wall. This coin has plenty of scribbles, but several runs through the guide have failed... at least for me, despite there being several possibilities to look for in both scribbles zones and among the UTFs: scribbles 1 small.jpg scribbles 4 small.jpg There are no cr...

I added a note about the lines from the upper lip to the main 21-P page. It should make it easier to find in the future.
Can we get your great shot of the upper lip added to the scribbles page?

The request is officially out to anyone who has the skills to do that (not me).

It appears to be a very nice example of VAM 3HA1

Thank you Tom! 3HA1 it is indeed.
Leroy's super-tight scribbles plate image left out a lot of the things I was trying to find. I guess I should have gone through the scribbles guide at least a 5th time.
