1878 S NGCMS64 VAM 28

While searching for my vam 76, I found this vam 28, I think in my favorite old thick gold embossed slab.
The die chip on the eagle's breast feathers is hard to see, but I think the rest of the die markers are there.
What do you think? Thank you, Bert

Re: 1878 S PCGSMS63 VAM 76 or 50?

Thank you Harry.
I saw what looked like a round dot, behind the lips or mouth and questioned it,
because I saw that on the vam 50 page and not on the vam 76 page.

1878 S PCGSMS63 VAM 76 or 50?

I had my 1878 S PCGSMS63 labeled a vam 76, because of the way the Acid Treated Wing Feathers looked, but I think I see a tiny round dot, behind the mouth or lips.
Can someone please tell me if it is a vam 'funky feather', vam 76 or 50?
Thank you, Bert

Re: OT 1914 D PCGSMS64 BUFFALO NICKEL

Thank you everyone. I just saw this 1914 D PCGSMS65 buffalo nickel, a grade above mine on Great Collections. Looking at the obverse, really makes me glad I saw mine and bought it. I can't believe PCGS would give an MS65 grade on it. Look how weak the hairlines above the braid are. Shows how it pays ...

OT 1914 D PCGSMS64 BUFFALO NICKEL

Since I haven't found any nice vams for awhile, I've been looking at some nicely toned buffalo nickels and I just received this nicely toned 1914 S PCGSMS64 yesterday, which I also think has some strong details. Like the hair line, above the braid, full ends of both feathers and on the reverse stron...

1878 VAM 84A CLASHED E

Here is one of my luckiest finds a long time ago.
My 1878 PCGSMS63 OGH VAM 84A, with a clashed E.
The E is faint, like on the vam page, but is there.
Also faint are the N, on Liberty's neck and the M, on
the reverse.
I have a number of pictures.
Enjoy, Bert

1904 O PCGSMS64DMPL VAM 28A 'TRIGGER'

I was lucky to have seen the strong clashing on the neck of my 1904 O PCGSMS64DMPL
and bought it a long time ago.
All of the other clashes popped out for a VAM 28A.

Re: 1878 S VAM 36 B DRAGON SCALES

Thank you everyone, I was just lucky to have seen some extra scales and did some searching, through the 1878 S vams and found it. Thank you keilg1, I had taken those pictures above a long time ago. I was lucky to have found this coin today and took some more pictures. Maybe the die crack doesn't go ...
