Re: 1885 O new VAM? doubled "ONE"

I'm not familiar with that series, but that is a beautiful coin and great pictures. Thanks for sharing.

Re: Having fun with the 21's.

Yes.
That of course begs the next question.
Is it a new VAM, having a finger feed groove but no capped "R?"
I can appreciate the "die poop" argument, but think that adherence to that philosophy should also require an advocacy for the removal of many Scarface VAMS and uncountable numbers of Peace VAMs.

Having fun with the 21's.

A short time ago I purchased a small quantity of my dealer's remaining Morgans just for the silver content. They were almost all 1921's. So I started sifting, and here are a few of my finds. A 1921-P, VAM-32A 1921 P V32A.jpg Two 1921-D VAM-1F 1921 D V1F.jpg And a 1921-D (presumably a VAM-1) whose di...

Re: O/T Silver Trading Info

Week in review. Thursday the 19th I asked the bank tellers if there were any restrictions on my withdrawl limit. They looked at me like I had two heads. “Of course not.” By Saturday the 21st, the lobby was closed. The drive thru was open, but there was a $1,000 limit on withdrawls. They blamed it on...

I didn't think I would mind the quarantine. But it is getting harder knowing all the excitement in town that I am missing.

Re: Who else is growing a Quarantine Beard?...

I can't claim this is a quarantine beard, I'm just generally unkempt. But as long as we're sharing ugly mugs, I thought I'd post mine. Not long ago I slipped on the ice and went face first into a snow bank. The lens popped out of my glasses and cut my forehead. So now I'm staying home, not because o...

Unless they will be available at $1/ ounce, the phrase "But its legal if the government does it." comes to mind.

Re: O/T Silver Trading Info

I do not criticize my local B&M for treating stock exchange numbers as the fiction they are. If you want to see how the free market works, go on ebay. $22+ per ounce is common. Last week I bought all remaining Peace dollars, Franklin halves and Washington quarters. By Monday, all I could get was $10...

Legend has it that the crescent mark at the top of the reverse was caused when the Princess was presented with the wax models for inspection, and she touched it with her fingernail.

Re: OT... How are you gonna handle the next 2 weeks?

I won't be doing anything different.
Last week I checked the bathroom. Plenty of TP.
Under the kitchen sink there is most of a jug of hand cleaner that I use to fill small bottles around the house.
Any required trips to Walmart will be done at 3 AM as I'm a nocturnal person.

Re: O/T BULLION TRADING FUTURES

I'm no expert in this field, and every time I make a move it seems to be the wrong one.
For now I would be most comfortable taking my paper promise assets out of the market until after the November election.
Parking it in silver seems like a good idea.
Anxiously awaiting updates to the topic.

Re: 1904-O VAM-31 Collar Clash?

I don't see where this feature is a collar clash. And maybe I'm beating a dead horse, but I like to look at the details. In the case of VAM-31, the feature appears to have been repeated. Maybe its in the die, maybe in the ejection, or something else. Close inspection shows some similarities to what ...

Re: lost band found

Sharp eye LJS. Those same markers are on my VAM-29, with exception of doubling of "04."
I've got to get some shut eye, but I'll be back and can provide photos if needed.

Dearth of Detailed Photographs on VAM Pages

It may just be my imagination, but since the change-over to VAMWORLD 2.0 there seems to be a lot fewer Details photos.
Is this because of a difficulty in transfer?
Perhaps a desire to focus less on die poop and return to the basics?
Something else?
Or maybe I'm mistaken.

1904-O VAM pages Photo Corrections

A quick run through the listing indicates a need for review on two of the pages.
VAM-31. First of the "Additional Photos" Tripled Ear, may be upside down. Not the Leroy Photo.
VAM-2A. The details photos #5 and #6 may be of VAM-35.
Thanks.
