Re: 1881-O Die Pairing Question

Wow, sharp eye! I guess I didn't spend enough time at v47 and sure enough the date is almost identical (I lack the two pits in the upper loop of the first 8, and I've examined the cap and cannot see any signs of doubling on the cap (die 29 photos available at http://www.1881o.com/die-o-29.html).

Re: 1881-O Die Pairing Question

Thanks a lot Guys - I really appreciate the guidance, and encouragement! But no worries - I've been on too many roller coasters in my day to be counting any chickens prematurely. Hm, seems I recall an overly-scientific rendition of that saying in some Vammer's signature recently. Case in point: I wa...

Thanks messydesk and blh74! I appreciate the help and words of encouragement. Assuming HawkEye doesn't see any reason not to, I'll try and submit the coin to Leroy. If you could point me to up-to-date guidance, please send a message if you wouldn't mind.

Re: 1881-O Die Pairing Question

[continuing post] Here's the date from a couple photos with different lighting. I need to learn how to adjust lighting and angle to capture surface detail and doubling, but I think there's enough here show the match to die 4.
