Re: Anyone recognize this 79-S?

Is it already listed?

Is this the die that was also used for 80-S dollars?

Here's a few more images of obverse markers that seem to match pretty well

Re: Anyone recognize this 79-S?

If it's not the same, then it's a seriously evil mimic. There are multiple vertical lines under the cotton bolls and that diagonal line in the L of LIBERTY too.

Re: Anyone recognize this 79-S?

Wow, think you're right. Looks a little different in a higher grade. But, there's enough there to convince me it's a match. Thanks!

Anyone recognize this 79-S?

Thought it would be pretty basic since it has a strong RPM - but I'm coming up empty.
Ring any bells?

Re: 1897 Vam 6A

So is the J shaped scratch at the bottom of the ear present? Why is the 'dot' a different color?
I'll invite you to entertain the idea that I and others on this site might know a little bit more about VAMs than your guy at the local coin store.

Re: 1878-S VAM-17 EDS?

The slot listing was for denticle impressions. The early stage doesn't have them. It's akin to the unclashed version of a clashed die listing

Re: 1921-D VAM 1AO - is it valid?

The filled die was on an early stage with no breaks. A crack pattern matching VAM 1P would have likely prevented the duplicate listing from its inception. Thanks again for the help with putting this one to rest

Re: 1921-D VAM 1AO - is it valid?

Thanks guys. I'd call this VAM 1P1. I don't think it would affect the later stages. Based on this VAM 1AO should be eliminated.

1921-D VAM 1AO - is it valid?

So I have the discovery piece on my desk now and I am wondering if any of you (Dennis) recognize this as another VAM. I have that strong sense of 'deja-vam' and can't find a match. The strike thru that caused the missing letter entry wouldn't get listed today. There are faint scribbles and a strong ...
