Why would you want another listing? VAM 11 is already listed for the doubling. It would be a waste of time and money in my opinion.

Re: 1887P Doubling

Thank you everybody for your response. Can this one as CascadeChris was talking about if it is severe enough, get listed as a separate die stage of a known die pair? Do I need more or better photos? Thank you all... Tennessee....🤔 To answer: I'd send it if I had others going and had space. Listable...

Re: 1880-S VAM15 raw pl/dmpl...

Soak it in acetone for a few hours. It could just be some PVC haze. If that doesn't work then a quick dip in 50/50 eZest + water. If neither of those work then the haze is most likely dip burn and wont come off. It's not worth the cost of professional conservation unless you just want to throw mone...

Re: 1880-S VAM15 raw pl/dmpl...

Nice. 80s comes PL/DMPL with incredible frequency. Also, when taking a pic or vid to show PL surfaces against a colorful or text page it's best to take it out of any flip or holder. The glare get in the way. I think i found one of my new favorite series. 80-s are cheeeeeeeeeap for PL/DMPL up to MS6...

Re: Just received this amazing 1881 O today

Hmm, with known examples only in PL and DMPL this reverse die must have been retired early for what ever reason or the bag(s) containing later strikes were melted in 1918.... Congrats again Bert on acquiring a fine example of one of the better collapsed die VAMs. Off now to find one.... :D A partia...

Re: 28-S Help... is this a v6?

Maybe I can help to explain my perspective. I spent 10 years doing a die study on the 1902-O series. I had to learn a lot along the way. But one thing that happened is that I got 1902-O coins listed as DCs that I later had to get de-listed. I was not happy about that, because I felt I should have k...

Not a great VAM, but the coin is magnificent. The hair detail is just... *kisses fingers*... Need to send it to conservation to get the haze off, but those fields should clean up nicely. It reflects that red dot from about 10" away; photo'ing it becomes the problem :lol: Sorry for the crappy reverse...

Re: Just received this amazing 1881 O today

Is that over polished or die wear? Not entirely positive as I've never studied the occurrence. In my mind it's probably a causality, over polishing or bad polishing caused the die to deteriorate over time. Could have been a reverse that wasn't hardened properly and the constant polishing wore the d...

Thanks y'all. :)

Going to feel so so wrong cracking it out of the old rattler to get it in a discovery holder though :?

Bert: Thank you. I always try to remind myself that there's three sides to a coin. :)

Now to send in the Morgans...

Not sure what others would say. I am not a paid attributor. I would have hoped the actual break BELOW the D was more advanced to be a drop dead V6A.
