Re: Back from Leroy 4 NEW 1878 Varieties W/ 2 new 8 TF

While I really do not understand what happened to this coin. I cant think of a way to manufacture this effect. The coin clearly has PMD, with that said the inside areas of the lettering show no tooling. Some of the areas I am speaking about are a tight as a needle point. I have taken a few really ba...

I cant remember seeing and VAM-82 coins in a later die...

Re: 1887 O vam 5A

The 1887 O V-5a is not that rare, it just has a little following and the break by the 7 is extremely minor and on low AU and below coins its hard to see and the rim cud is just starting. Where as the V5b has a nice full rim cud that's long and a really nice displaced break. Many times people look at...

Better than Average 1889 O V 13a

I bought this from Brain … PS Brain Thanks This type of break looks far more dramatic in XF and below due to the dirt. The break extends all the way to the leaves and really is not just a displaced break, as the break has displacement but it also has raised metal that is above the fields "plane" on ...

Re: 97 p what i think is a proof die

When looking to ID a given years VAM from about 1880 forward you need to start off by looking at the date position. Much of your frustration comes from looking at things not in the official listing. This is due to the fact if everything was in the listing each VAM would have a full page and we have ...

May Be The New Top POP 7/8 V-33a

Well I won this and the seller even shill bid me up 15 bids, and I think I am still OK with the coin. This is a VAM 33a 7/4 and I cant see this coin being less than an MS-65 on a bad day and the color is Original Stacks paper flip color.
