Re: Well here is a Missing VAM from the SSDC Registry

I just looked at the listing from the discovery and it states its the only one. It looks like there are to others but this one looks to be the only type with no reverse clash marks present. You can see clearly that this die pair was re-worked to remove clashing on both sides.

1878 P 7 TF help Please

OK here are 4 photos. We have a Broken 4th star and a small opening in the nose and a "Really Strong Pregnant Broken P" The reverse is a Open O and what looks to be a repaired R but it also could be an Un Broken R. The Broken star and open O puts it in the VAM 180's or 140's kind of, but I cant find...

Extremely early 1878 S VAM-5 No Doubled Letters

Well this just came in the mail today. Its an 1878 S VAM 5 with out question as it has "some" of the pick up points. This coin also looks to have a cracked plancet that is runs from field to field in an arch that is not a staple scratch. The coin is in a PCGS MS-64 PL holder. Why do I think its an E...

Re: Few Better Picks Today!

Well the 1880 P is an EDS of the VAM-16, here is a photo of the date. It looks like the "0" has remnants of a "9" over it as well, but that could be seeing tree bark and not the tree.

"Darn it", it has an open "O" so its a VAM-165 The next coin is a stone cold original 2 sided toners 1880 P with...

I would agree the die is the die as well. This VAM is not found often in grades where they are easily viewed, was the point of the post.

1878 P 8tf 14.5 More than a single gouge

I was sent this coin in to get it graded, and before I shipped it I looked at it really close. The Gouge that runs thought the "A" in STATES is far more than 1 gouge, and is really neat!
