Re: what should I call this 1921-P?

Since 93 shows no cracks at the R of DOLLAR and 93A shows a "Y" crack above the R, yours appears to be intermediate between the two. So do we need a 93B? Please say no!

Re: Morgan 1921-S With Dot over Trust

I think I finally have this figured out. The dot over the T of TRUST is shown on the VAM-1AP2 page. Problem is, the photo's caption says "Clash S." The LFCP for 1AP2 shows the dot, but the LFCP for 1AP1 does not, although it may be lost in the reflection in the photo. Can anyone confirm that 1AP et ...

Re: 1921-P: this is a tough one

Glad to help.

Later on there is another die crack intersecting to the left of the R of DOLLAR and extending up the right wreath.

Does Morgan 1921-S VAM-4A = VAM-1AM

The radial crack through D in Dollar on 1921-S VAM-4A sure looks like the radial crack through the D in Dollar on 1921-S VAM-1AM.

Can anyone confirm?

Re: Soaring hopes... then crushing reality

Unlucky!

Not too much left of what is described as "...one of the longer die gouges in the Morgan series"

Re: 1921-P I crack me up. VAM-1BJ?

When you hit the link button the editor inserts two URL tags inside '[]' brackets.

I'm going to substitute '<>' for the '[]' brackets to show you how to make a link.

<url=yourURLHere>Your descriptive text Here</url>

So here is the active link: VAM-3BM

Ok.

Hit the link button at the top. Your descriptive text goes between the tags, and the URL goes in the first tag.

Re: Morgan 1921-P VAM-1BA === VAM-1Z

I have two bright, but late-ish die state VAM 1Zs... or at least that's what I've always called them. SInce 1Z comes up first in the list of attribution pages, it's entirely possible that I never made it to 1BA – which I coincidentally do not have an example of. My best coin for photographing has t...

Re: Morgan 1921-P VAM-104 is not VAM-3L

The die cracks both pass from R in DOLLAR into the right wreath.

That of VAM-3L passes through a berry:

Morgan 1921-P VAM-104 is the so-called 'spiked' O (of ONE), with a small gouge at the lower right side. WIN_20210129_13_49_29_Pro.jpg VAM-3L has a gouge at the D of DOLLAR.

Re: Morgan 1921-D VAM-1DD === VEDS VAM-1AU

The first example does, adjacent to the second and third right stars (It is in an ANACS holder).
