If anyone is friends with him on Facebook, try to see if his area has an "I'm OK" tag and see if he used it. Hopefully he still has cell service to let people know he's alrite...

@LateDateMorganGuy Nope, the chest doesn't have that gouge or any similar marker. I'm gonna go look at 44 and 44B.
Look carefully for these markers for me, if you don't mind boss...

1888-O Doubled Die Obverse...

Been trying to pick a really nice Hot Lips for the last year, but they seem to be getting harder to find raw and unattributed. The ones I have found have been polished or cleaned, so when I saw this one, I grabbed it for a straight-graded example, and the older 1998 slab. They didn't start attributi...

Re: 1885 Double Top or RPD?

No. Dates were punched into the working dies for all series until 1909. Starting in 1909, dates were punched into a master die, so any doubling on the date would be a doubled die, not a repunched date. If dates were punched directly into the working dies... Then *Every* single Morgan double date is...

Re: 1885 Double Top or RPD?

RPD means repunched date. If the date is formed with a punch, it can be repunched, such as is the case with the coin shown and all other Morgan's before 1921 (except maybe some 1878s). If the date is only in the hub, it cannot be a RPD, and any doubling is due to a doubled die. They punched the dat...

Re: 1885 Double Top or RPD?

The date would need to be doubled on the hub for an RPD. A hub being slightly misaligned and causing a doubled working die would not be an RPD. In my mind...

Re: 1902-O VAM-59?

Cracks aren't listable unless they form a break or displacement, so radial cracks are just more for identifying and eye candy. They are super helpful to judge die states sometimes, as you noted. Check your coin for the profile doubling and the wing gouge if you don't trust the cracks, but the O-Star...

Re: 1896-S VAM-4

Check the ear and 1 for VAM-10 while you have it in hand... That S looks a little higher set on VAM-4?... Hard to tell...

If you can't find any markers, it would revert to a plain V4, regardless of the reverse though right? MDPME?

Re: Stupid Questions from the new guy!

Hello all, I must apologize because I am sure you get this post on a regular basis. I have collected coins with my father for most of my life (I am 31 now) and recently stumbled into the world of VAM dollars. I have mostly stayed in the world of date/mint mark sets and have small amounts of experei...

Yeah... Sadly, I'm not good enough with this series to help with those pictures. Hopefully someone with a better experience with this set can help. I honestly can't even tell if the R's been re-engraved in those. I lack the in-hand experience with this one boss... It looks like it's a triangle varie...

Check 23 if you have chips/gouges in the hair.

Lemme see the R and the B in better photos and I'll try to help if I can.

Oh, I agree. I never said anything about being for or against the vaccine. Just pointing out that CC may have very well been told that by his doctor, as many doctors are hesitant with it.

How about if I call it garbage instead? Some front line workers are passing so that people at higher risk of dying can get it first. Any doctor that recommend I not get vaccinated would no longer be my doctor. Hydroxycloraquine? Give me a freaking beak. You are proving your name though... I never s...

Re: Covid Shots

This is junk. You should find new doctors. Well the alternatives are not good. I have a friend who decided to go visit all his kids for Christmas and somewhere along the way picked up Covid. He was home for about 10 days before getting worse and it going into pneumonia. Then he went in the hospital...
