1883-O cherry pick

I've been looking for one of these in the wild for quite some time now. It finally happened. She's a little rough on the edges, but hey...it is what it is...

Re: Neat "E" Clasher...

Nice pick Chris! I'm always on the lookout for an 1886-O E clasher in well circulated condition. Certainly not as common as the '91-O 1A..

Felix- nice pick on that 22A! I just cherried one a couple of weeks ago finally.... It may have been in the same yad!!! :lol:

Re: First buffed reverse?

Here's some pic's of the one I have. Has the pit patch under the tail feathers and the other noticeable feature you can't miss is the heavy double "N" clash. Tough to get a good pic of wing break on circulated coin,but can see outline of both breaks pretty clear with a loupe. LDS 1C2 or 1C3 :?: jv ...

I asked the same question with 1902-O VAM-45 as an example...Just not enough meat to warrant a new VAM number... :)

Re: First buffed reverse?

Loren's example is about the same die state as my example posted. Possibly several strikes prior as the wavy field around the wing tip and small break on the wing tip appear the same but the pits have not (fully?)formed.

Re: First buffed reverse?

Does the small patch of pitting below tail feathers could be considered a die marker for 1C3?? Can we find it also on 1C2’s?? vincar73 here is a crop of the lower tail feathers area of my LDS 1C2. I believe the patch that is referenced on the 1C3 page is the one under the second and third tail feat...

Re: First buffed reverse?

While these are cool, keep in mind that the term "buffed dies" is not correct. These are failed dies, with the die collapsing or sinking during striking. The 83-O VAM 1C shows how the die deteriorates in this respect over time. Log books from the mint for 1881-O show a die being retired because it ...
