Re: 1921P morgan. Forgot obv and rev fotos

The dot in your photo does not appear to be in the same location as the one in 59A. WIN_20200602_11_51_25_Pro.jpg The scribbles are helpful.

Did you check the "dots" list?
Ha! It is on the dot page as 1AE.

Unfortunately there is no entry on the scribbles page for 1AE or 1BW.

Given the similarity of the "chip" to the "dot", it looks like 1BW may be the same as 1AE.

Re: Morgan 1921-P VAM-101

Ken: I've been messing with one of your latest photos and have 3 reasons why this coin should be easily (sort of) attributable. They are indicated on the photo: Kissov 1-2-3.jpg 1 – Chunks of stuff in the right scribbles opening are pretty common, but are most often tiny. Two or even 3 small chunks...

Re: Morgan 1921-P VAM-101

I agree that this isn't a VAM 101. I also can't place it. Fascinating that you have four of them! Hope we can identify it! Here are a few more bits and pieces. One example has some faint scribbles in the area outside of the right leg. WIN_20200506_05_11_31_Pro.jpg There are a few polish lines acros...

Re: Morgan 1921-P VAM-101

Thanks for the information.

I have four of these, and I will do a closer examination to see if I can find any other likely markers.

Re: This 1921-P D1 should be easy, but...

Try 1BO. Yes indeed! And this is embarrassing... 1BO is my discovery. :oops: Only a blurry part of the line under the 9 is visible on my DC, but all the secondary markers are there. And, of course, my attribution problem started with 1BO not being in the Scribbles Guide. :cry: Thank very much for y...

None of those features show up on my coins.

They do show a double file line in the nostril.

Morgan 1921-P VAM-101

I have examples of what I have been calling very LDS VAM-101 that have virtually no scribbles. These examples have polishing lines on the neck, and the lines in the "R" of LIBERTY seems to match up: WIN_20200505_11_22_17_Pro.jpg WIN_20200505_11_23_48_Pro.jpg There is a scratch from the upper cotton ...

I love the "lashes" in front of the eyeball! Hopefully they are something Mitch has seen before.
I hadn't noticed them until Mitch asked about markers. They really are distinctive.

The 21-S VAMs are a tough bunch!

Re: Morgan 1921-S Crack

Not really any scribbles, and the coin has been worked over pretty well: WIN_20200502_13_16_02_Pro.jpg It has evidence of file/polish lines on both the obverse and reverse. There is an interesting curved line at the "n" in "In" and some strong file lines at the eye and forehead: WIN_20200502_13_15_0...

My only example of 3AW1 is not very pretty, but it does show the strong horizontal lines in the upper tail feathers.

Morgan 1921-P VAM-3N

This is a very EDS example that is nearly crack/pit free. There is just the barest hint of die pitting on the left side of the "U". WIN_20200428_13_55_04_Pro.jpg This example has a beautiful/tragic strike through that obliterates the arrow feathers and takes some of the olive branch, some of the oli...

Re: Morgan 1921-P VAM-3EF

I had no examples of 3EF until this one, and only one example of what I called 3GI. My example of 3GI has the obverse and reverse scratches you show, and also shows the "A" gouge. It also has what I assume is die pitting on the first right wreath segment. Does you EDS example show any evidence of di...
