Re: Die Adjustment Strike ?

See if this diagonal line where it connects to vertical line in upper left side of Y you can see in your coin. The 1J shares the obverse with 1C2. the lines get pretty mushy in the 1J. Also check reverse under second S in STATES for beveling of field. Can be seen on most 1J’s. It’s interesting as yo...

Re: Die Adjustment Strike ?

Would be nice if that was a 22 before clashing, Ive never seen one. The mm in the coin pictured appears to me to be slightly higher than the 22. I have several examples of the die pair used in 1J that exhibit the same weakness on obverse and reverse of the coin pictured except the weakness in eagles...

Well the map of 1866 in LOC, 2 years after statehood, shows the name to be Carson City.

Re: Question to ponder

Used in a sentence “ The City of Carson, Nevada”....

Carson City is what we are used to. Language from the past is much different than the grammar that is common these days that I am certainly guilty of.

Re: VAM This

Harry, I think the top feather just got trimmed a bit close.

Hopefully the last picture will nail it for some.

Re: VAM This

Alan, Good question. I think it’s a C3. Been polished a bit. Whoever cut this did a pretty careful job. Of course my lighting blows up right on sweet spot, it is smooth all the way down from top of berry. Don’t see the ledge with C4/C3

Re: VAM This

Hey Kenny, sure it’s a 1886, and fairly confident of mint. Here’s another clue.

VAM This

Saw this and had to have it. My father always used a money clip so reminded me of him. I think I was able to VAM this in a few minutes, testament to this site. I will post some pup details later tonight to see what others think is the VAM from what remains of the coin. 76430D4E-9C54-4550-8577-6F542C...

Re: 21-P D2 scribble

Thanks Dennis,

I can’t believe I missed it in the scribble scratch list. Looked through it several times.

All you 21 guys are amazing. Appreciate the help. Never feels good not to be able to attribute something and the folks like you have made it much easier for the 21 series.

Thanks again, Ray

21-P D2 scribble

Can’t seem to find this one.

Not much stands out on this one. PL like fields, three jump rope scratches in PLUR, some beveled field under top of 2 in date.

I looked for this earlier die stage for a while but have not found it. Is it scarce?

Re: A Time Capsule of Prices

Dennis thanks for sharing and very interesting. What would you say is the driving force behind large increases in listed values of certain coins? I understand if new hoards of a date/mm come to market which can drive the price down, but what is driving it up? Is overall demand up for certain coins. ...
