Re: Removing solder...

I will assume that the removal of solder is an attempt to restore a piece previously used for jewelry. The term solder is frequently used as a generic term like “tape” or “adhesive.” In this case there are two types of solder to consider. Solder used in electronics has a low melting temperature (aro...

Re: 1889 Boomerang

There are several factors that could account for a "boomerang" without letter transfer. Strength and angle of clash, polishing after the event, etc. But another explanation might be that the obverse die that was involved in the clash was later swapped out and a different obverse die used to make you...

Re: An 1904 O vam 37A

The 37A was one of the harder coins for me to find.
However this may be due to the fact that I am limited to hunting via auction pictures.
Great find, Bert.

Re: Thanksgiving

I will be having Thanksgiving with my best friend of 55 years now, and his wife. They have invited me every year for the last 15 years, and this will be my first opportunity to accept. I've been instructed not to bring anything. I assume this is because she is generous and accommodating, and because...

Re: Heritage Auction Web Site is down due to Malware Attack

I thought the bidding at GC was a little higher.
Connection, coincidence or just my imagination?

Allowing for die/coin wear, I'd go along with doubling or tripling.

Re: 1921-P VAM 13A pix & question

Die is showing wear, as well as the coin.
But for a quick and dirty, I think this is it.
As usual, it's more apparent "in hand."

1922 VAM 7A

I swung by my local B&M to pick up a little bullion just in case to economic Doom and Gloom people are correct. And my dealer has added a new catagory of dollars that can be purchased at the current spot price of silver. Theses are a little better than the real culls. I quickly picked out a few that...

Re: VERY VERY OT, this is why I hate him.

To a lesser degree, why would you take the car to a mechanic to have the nuts removed? It seems like driving with all that under the hood might risk greater damage. But to a greater degree, learn to process the nuts. Back in 1985 I was renting a place that had a walnut tree. In the fall, I picked up...

I was having trouble logging in and got a temporary password emailed.
