Re: 1923 D VAM 1X1 or 1X2 - What's it worth?

I would agree with not paying a premium for this one in a circulated grade. Uncs are distinctly scarce however.

Re: Fall cleaning VAMs for sale

Re: 1923 S Collar Clash

There is a die state of 1CQ which has a collar clash in the area shown, but other die markers don't match. Nice pickup!

Re: 1922 Peace VAM Unknown, long obv die crack, double clash eagle's shoulder

I don't recognize this as a listed VAM. Leroy won't list a clashed die unless it is dramatic - double or triple clashed or extending into UNUM. Likewise, he won't list a coin for a die crack unless there is some displacement - look carefully for any deflection in the field especially in the left upp...

Re: Planchet problem or break; what do you think?

I will guess lamination also, I have seen similar feature on a few Peace dollars. If someone finds another, then you have a major find!

Re: 1926 P help, please.

It appears that the die & coin are worn, but it appears to be a VAM 2. What you see on the obverse is machine doubling.

Re: 1923-S VAM ???

Hi Tom, I think that you have a VAM 1AU, of which the old VAM 1J is the LDS. Unfortunately, the pages don't show the die cracks well other than the LLQ of the obverse, but your photos on the VAM 1AU page would be a big help. Even if not a new discovery, it is still a nice coin,. Keep on looking, the...

Does your coin have the die crack at date of VAM 1BM?

Re: peace dollar discovery coins

I just just today saw your post. I have the discovery coin of the 1923D VAM 1AZ on the VAMworld BST on a separate post.
I will be looking at some of my others which I would be willing to sell.

Re: Darkside Help, Please. Clashed 1923-S

First of all, there are quite a few clashed & polished dies listed for 1923S. However, your coin has what appears to be a die break in the hair (photo 2nd from top) which is not listed, but should be listable. If this turns out to be as it appears, nice pickup!

Re: Discovery coin conundrum

All the more reason for diligent researcher(s) to be doing a date study. This date is not alone in confusion of the listings, and Leroy does not have the coins when he examines a coin sent to him.
