Re: Covid Shots

I got my second dose of the Moderna vaccine on Wednesday and it knocked me on my ass for about 48 hours. I have several medical conditions that make Covid a severe risk, so I took the jabs. Did a lot of research and talked with professionals who did not have a dog in the fight to go from strong anti...

Re: 1900-O Slanted Date Help Needed, Please

Thanks. Sounds like I need to sit on this one for a while. I will check out 38 and see if it is a fit. Appreciate the help.

Re: 1900-O Slanted Date Help Needed, Please

looks real to me but abused. the genral softness and beveling of the devices does not appear as they do on the "privately made" series. Agree. Purchased on eBay with not great pictures. In hand it looks more like a real mint issue, but now i can't match it up. It has been frustrating me. The proble...

Re: 1900-O Slanted Date Help Needed, Please

Thanks. I looked at 2C, and while the date position is good, there is no gouge in the R. The Wing-A break isn't pictured and when looking at the LFCP Reverse pic, the crack seems to be in the wrong place. Not sure 2C will work for this.

1900-O Slanted Date Help Needed, Please

I have been going over this for a couple weeks now and can't find a match. I don't have all the supplements and not all of the VAMWorld listings have date photos, so I may be missing something obvious. I bought this because it looked like it might be a contemporary counterfeit. There is some roughne...

Re: Verification please

Same reverse as my new 1893-CC VAM 六 with a different mintmark! It got the special sludge and sewage soak for "realistic" toning, though.

Re: 1900-O help, please.

Might be unlisted... but with the pitting and what looks like little bubbles on some device edges, it may also be a cast counterfeit. It definitely saw circulation, so if it is a counterfeit, it would be a contemporary counterfiet. I will try to take better pictures with my digital scope. These were...

Already eliminated 2C. No gouge in the R. Date placement also doesn't work with the other slanted dates.

Re: 1900-O help, please.

Sorry for the jumbled post... have trouble posting from my phone. Here are a couple more shots. Reverse has cracks on both sides and there is some funky stuff happening on the rim by UNITED. Looks like PMD, or it could be some sort of planchet flaw, but it just looks odd. 1900-O Reverse TED.jpg 1900...

1900-O help, please.

Last week I took two shots at possible contemporary counterfeit Morgans. The first turned out to be a hit (1902-o VAM 3). This one, 1900-O has me a bit stumped. It has a slanted date. Not sure whether this is a normal date or not... doesn't seem to match existing Normal Slanted Date VAMs. There is a...

That was my initial thought, but some of the other markers weren't there.
