Re: New 89-O "Oval-o"... Or am I seeing things??

I am seeing Oval - I compare the space in the middle to the two sides. This center looks small hence OVAL to me It's not the interior section that makes it an oval O. It's the O itself. Look at the outside circumference of the O and compare it to the two O's above. The inside of the MM is what is g...

The lump on top of the O is distinctive and the other pitting isn't present.
I am just wondering if the picture is large enough to locate the minute detail needed to pick off the VAM if you
are correct :-)

IS this enough information to identify this coin and its VAM? :-)

so I like to play games what can I say :/
First off I own this coin - pictures are mine taken by me and my phone ( I know I know )
It is not a stolen picture or procured by any other nefarious means ..

IS this picture enough for you to identify the coin and VAM?

Have fun.

Re: 1904 O MORGAN PCGS MS66 VAM-32 Doubled Top Reverse, Clashed Obverse G RARITY #5

What I am not seeing is such a high grade by PCGS of a VAM 32 -
Its on Ebay under my pseudo if you would like to venture to look at the other pictures.
I do appreciate all your help.

Though I now have 105 coins out of my Circulation Registry set to look through now ... :mrgreen:
Good day

Re: 1904 O MORGAN PCGS MS66 VAM-32 Doubled Top Reverse, Clashed Obverse G RARITY #5

I have almost no sales history for this VAM (see below), which by default I always regard as meaning there is virtually no collecting interest and/or premium warranted. 1904-O 3 65 NGC Mar-11 CS $140 1904-O 3 64 PCGS Jul-16 E $61 Is the so called "Trigger" VAM still a popular item ? The VAM 32 is s...

1904 O MORGAN PCGS MS66 VAM-32 Doubled Top Reverse, Clashed Obverse G RARITY #5 (SOLD)

I can provide more pictures if you want but all the diagnostics are there.
Just interested how much $ change there would be going from an already
nice highly graded Morgan to a Highly graded VAM-32.
Is there a price guide that one uses or is by historical data.
Appreciate your help

Looks like a 6, not a 6A. (Attribution page shows a pretty big cud in the denticles for 6A).
Good point … strange chip sitting in the denticles which I though was odd

1883-o Morgan - "Weirdo Ear"

Good Evening Long Time lurking, First time posting. I have a weird one, at least to me. I own 105 Morgan's as part of my NGC Circulating set. This one is weird and was seen with the naked eye. Then I took closer pictures ( Sorry just my phone guys :( ) It looks like a sort of double line that contin...
