Re: Is there a 21-P expert in the house?

Thanks for all the help. The 3FT cracks match perfectly. However mine has no scribbles I can see with my 10X lens. It seems to have been polished out. This pic from the wiki looks just like mine. Does that make mine LDS? By the way, 3FT is not listed in the 16 berry crack guide.

That's what I thought before I got it in hand. Crack hits the D in the wrong spot.

Re: 98-O I can't pin down

Found this pic under V-12, it says "This "marker" may be a hub defect or a design feature". Anyone know the answer? Mine has this also.

Two 1881-S questions

I'm probably wrong but, I thought VAM-1 was "reserved" for coins with no differing features. Hence my first question, 81-S VAM-1 listing says "Some specimens show die chips between loops on both sides of first eight". Are there so many "chip and non-chip" coins that they are both normal? Also, I too...

1879-P VAM-93 Possibly stupid question

There are three dies listed for this variety. Are there three different versions of the same VAM ?
Also, my coin has the upper wing line but none of the other markers. What am I not understanding, please ?
