Re: 1878 7/8TF Attribution Help Needed, Please

@vampicker, turns out, it's not even die poop. Got it under the scope and it's PMD.

Re: 1878 7/8TF Attribution Help Needed, Please

@morganman , just curious; what are these going for these days? I picked this up for $102 (bidding went high in the last minute and I had placed a nuclear bid (it was listed as a 7TF, not a 7/8; apparently a couple of others picked up on it being a 7/8).

Re: 1878 7/8TF Attribution Help Needed, Please

Thanks, everyone. Got it home last night under the scope (much better than a poor quality, Chinese 10x loupe). Teardrop is there (thank you JR!). VAM 38 it is, and one that I did not have, so a good pick-up on the 'Bay. One last question for JB and JR, the die chip on the 8; is that something or jus...

Re: 1878 7/8TF Attribution Help Needed, Please

Thanks. I had ruled out 33 as none of the other attributes of 33 are present. 38 is a strong possibility, as there are many attributes of the obverse matching. Some differences on the reverse, though. (Probably a stage of 38.)

1878 7/8TF Attribution Help Needed, Please (ANSWERED - VAM 38)

Recently picked up an 1878 7/8TF in a Fleabay auction. It arrived in today's mail. The coin is an 7/8 TF, but I am having trouble matching it to the existing VAMs. Sorry for the lousy pics. Used a 10x loupe held against my cell phone camera. Here's the tail feathers: 20221003_094436.jpg Here are the...

1921 S Morgan with Over Polished Obverse and Reverse

Looking for some help on this 21-S Morgan I picked up. Both sides are over polished. The obverse has file lines throughout the fields, the bottom of the M is missing from the neck, the denticles are very odd looking, almost looking like upside down Us. The reverse has large blank areas in the wings....

Re: 1921 D VAM 1L[?] Is it 2, 3 or a new 4?

Mine seems to have more displacement at the A M break. Would it make sense for you to have the various coins in hand? I am happy to send mine if it helps.

Here's mine. If this is what makes it 1L3, is mine the 3 then?[attachment=0]20220503_172207.jpg[/attachment]

I got Defender. Much of the analysis seemed on point, but I wonder how much my answers would change based on my mood at the time.

1921 D VAM 1L[?] Is it 2, 3 or a new 4?

Picked up a 21-D that is part of the VAM 1L family. There are no pictures on the 1L3 page, so I am at a bit of a loss. Here's the full coin pics: 20220503_124605.jpg 20220503_124631.jpg The scribbles area is devoid of all detail and the right wing is overpolished, removing feather details. 20220503_...

Re: 1878 P 7/8 Tail Feathers Question

I should not have doubted Mike! Thank you, JR. I couldn't make out the finer PUPs due to the poor condition, but I learned long ago that if JR or JB says it is, it is. Thank you, again, to @hairfield1, @morganman and @vampicker for your help!

Re: 1878 P 7/8 Tail Feathers Question

Thanks. I did look at those, but neither one is a match. Can't use the finer die markers as this coin is pretty rough, but the bigger ones don't match.
