Re: I need help, with my 1878 S

Thank you Daryl, on my close up pictures. I use the cheapest digital microscope, that I could find. I do however spend a "lot of time", making sure I have the right focus, angle and distance and I try and hold it steady and then snap the picture. It even has eight tiny LED lights, all around the ins...

Re: I need help, with my 1878 S

Thank you John,
I thought I looked at that and saw something different, but everything matches.
I'm very happy, with a HOT 50 vam 6.

I need help, with my 1878 S

I have an 1878 S, that I see doubling in most of the letters,
in PLURABUS, LIBERTY and maybe the ear.
I looked at the doubled RIB vams 6, 16 and 111, but all that
I saw, there were differences.
I think it has an engraved wing feather.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You, Bert

Re: INTERESTING 1881 O

Thank you EVERYONE, I think it is closest to a vam 30 John, Thanks Here is a better picture of the polishing lines, around the eagle's head, Dennis. With the " crumbling rim", Thanks Chris on the obv, which is the reason I bought it, when the seller came down to $30, plus $3 S&H. Thanks again, Bert

Re: INTERESTING 1881 O

Thanks John, I understood, about the insignificance of the 'forming' rim cud, along the bottom on the obv. That is the only reason I bought it, because I liked that and I thought it was interesting, I have not seen an 1881 O, with a 'forming die cud', before. I said that I could see no other die mar...

INTERESTING 1881 O

I saw the rim cud forming along the bottom, of this 1881 O and I couldn't find any
vams, with the rim cud fully formed.
I saw no vam die markers, but I wanted it anyhow.
I just received it today.
what do you think?
Thanks, Bert

Re: I need help with my 1922 S

WOW! THANK YOU Jody and Dr Close. Here are some more pictures of the Y and B. I keep noticing the rims or edges and I'm only going, by what I have seen, on vams attributed with a 'collar clash', especially on the last picture, showing the E and the rim above., like with all of the tiny dash like mar...

I need help with my 1922 S

I have a 1922 S PCGSMS62, with a double wing clash. I think it is a Reverse B2: 3 mountain peaks and attached olive branch. I saw the vams 1D and 2AF, that looks close to double wing clash. I see the W clash in WE, under the M, in UNUM, on the reverse. I see a double clashes running out of the olive...

Re: 1923-P VAM 1W

Nice find Tom.
Nice surprise, expecting a V9 and a beautiful coin, to boot.
Knowledge is king.
I have yet to find one, I think, because the die break is so
hard to see, on a seller's pictures.
In fact, I can't see it, on your full obv picture.

Re: I need help with my 1923 S

Thank you Tom and Dr Close, I thought I looked at all of the 1923 S vams listed. The 'Die File Lines R' should have alerted me, I had 'blinders' on, for the wing clashed vams. Everything falls into place, for my 1923 S VAM 1BU LDS. The small, half circle, at the top/back of the neck, had caught my e...
