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.

Re: 1924 Peace Dollar VAM-1D1 and 1B1

I have examined 2 specimens of VAM 1D, they have the same obverse die. The later die state of this obverse, and I think this reverse, is VAM 1W. Given that we know that the clashed E occurred at least twice (VAM 8B being the other), I have no problem believing that it happened thrice. John, if you w...

1921 Peace dollar VAM 3 pair with 2 different obverse dies

In doing date studies, I have been looking at listed VAMs for more than 1 mate. I recently found a new die pairing with 1921 Peace VAM 3. While the differences may not be listable per se, I wanted to bring this to the attention of the VAM collecting public. If someone will send me a note explaining ...

Re: Duplicate Vam Alert on 1922 D Peace Dollar

Nice job! As prev mentioned, it is much harder to kill a VAM listing than to get one made.
