Intresting EDS 1878 PL

Well I found this coin on the BAY, late last week. Its a rather common 1878 P V-121. This one has a no less than high PL and closer to DMPL rev, and a solid PL OB. The doubled "P" and the R are much sharper and have more going on than the MS MS-63 I own. It looks like no PL coins are known in the SS...

Re: 1921 S Heavy clash Help

Well its not a VAM-1CE at all, Kind OF. Its the correct clashed die pair "But it doesn't look at all like the photos in the listing. It looks to have about 90% of the I clash and it also has the M clash on the reverse above the "O" of GOD. It also has really deep polishing lines all over the OB. But...

1921 S Heavy clash Help

I have had this one for some time, I forgot to label it and I cant figure it out now. This coin has the same clash location of the V-29a but is much deeper, and this coin also has the same gouge that's found on the 1921 S photo at the end of the clashed die page. This thing has extremely deep polish...

1880 P VAM 33a "PMD"

Well this mark has been determined to be PMD, how it appears on so many V-33b coins in the same spot has me a bit baffled.

Re: Has anyone seen this Before 1886 O

Well with the coin in hand this gouge is real and it also has a lighter one running out of the MM. The coin looks to be a solid AU55

Nicest 1878 7 tf I have bought

Well I found this on E Bay listed as just an 1878 Morgan Dollar. Its currently sitting at my local PO for delivery tomorrow. The PO doing Amazon deliveries has its advantages. :D

Has anyone seen this Before 1886 O

I bought this coin last night, mostly due to the gouge running out of the "L" in DOLLAR. I have never seen this and I think I have looked at a large number of 1886 O coins looking at clashes.

Re: 1880 P VAM-33a E Clash EDS "Picks"

I sent it to Leroy for the former owner awhile back, but with Marilyn's heath issues Leroy was sending everything back due to caring for his wife. The coin is in Leroy's PO Box currently, so the V-33a should be re validated shortly. I included a photo overlay and photo's, but I am sure Leroy will se...

You don't see what? The E N UST clash or the grade? The coin is nicer in hand and I think its a low MS-64

1880 P VAM-33a E Clash EDS "Picks"

Well I just got this in the mail and it is an extremely impressive example of this rarer VAM! The mid die states have an N clash as well as an UST clash but are much lighter :D

Re: New 88-S variety

I have been looking for this clashed die pair for a few years now that isn't polished down. After that clash they cleaned up the die pair and you can see straight line polishing lines above the cap and under the tail feathers.
