Re: Was suggested to post here

@LorenAlbert Thanks and what is "giving up weight"? Funny, after I wrote that; I headed to Google and Duck Duck Go to assess just how esoteric "giving up weight" might be. We are in the midst of an obesity epidemic. Thus, weight loss dominates the search results. I have squandered much of my life i...

Re: Was suggested to post here

This might have been amenable to a poll. I am not used to the lighting trickery of scanners. The sharpness of the borders, it seems to me, preclude struck-through for grease. I doubt PMD because I see no evidence of roll up. I am betting on debris. But I am not giving up weight.

Clashed_dies
You have indicated what is called a clashed cap-V. This happens when a blank (planchet) is not in place as the dies approximate. This is a common clash mark seen across most of the MM/YR for the Morgan.

Re: 1887/6 questions

Thank you for such a quick response. I am recently retired and have just started going through them in order to pass them on to kids and grandkids. Want to categorize them if possible when I find certain anomalies so if they get the bug they can gather more information if any. That is a great plan....

Re: Copyright Question about Variety subheadings

Loren, if you want the legal jargon for copyright or patent let me know and I’ll see if my wife can send me a link from Westlaw. Westlaw is the go to legal software product used by many law firm’s across the United States and 60 countries. It’s 40,000 strong databases contain case law, statues and ...

Re: Copyright Question about Variety subheadings

To me, this is interesting. All I did was suggest that Loren check with Leroy. I generally have provided Leroy that courtesy in the past. I am amazed that this thread had dived into a legal discussion of copyright. Common courtesy was my intention, not necessarily a legal interpretation on my part....

Re: Copyright Question about Variety subheadings

It seems the legal advice being given on this site is unequivocal... And worth every penny you pay for it. What puzzles me most about this thread is not the legal ramifications. Except for a couple of early posts, I am bewildered by the lack of encouraging comment by those I view as closest to LVA....

Re: Copyright Question about Variety subheadings

It seems the legal advice being given on this site is unequivocal. So I stand corrected apparently. Has anyone here or those offering legal advice seen Leroy's agreement with Collector's Universe? I have not seen the agreement. I don't think that it is clear, as you posted earlier, that LVA has the...

Re: Copyright Question about Variety subheadings

LorenAlbert I am a machinist. And yes I do sort all bolts as you suggested. I look forward telling my friends how granular I am. I can imagine the looks on their faces. I happen to have recently sorted machine bolts into an organizer. You need to make decisions how to label the drawers. Those decis...

Re: Copyright Question about Variety subheadings

One thing is for sure here. If I do not know what a word is I look it up. You speak of classification taxonomy. So now I am more confused. Taxonomy is a branch of biology that classifies all living things. I learned something new today Thank you very much! You might find that the word, not the fiel...

Re: Copyright Question about Variety subheadings

I try to keep my VAMming simple. Not sure why your approach seems so complicated, to me anyway. What you do, that I am aware of, is elegant (simple). As you have stated in previous posts, VAMming is secondary to what you do. A consequence. Or even an afterthought. Classification adds a layer. For m...

Re: Copyright Question about Variety subheadings

An "anonymous" copyright claim is very difficult to enforce. All contributors should be listed if you are serious about claiming copyright. Also, have you looked at the creative commons and educational exclusions? I have studied the various social media platform agreements, including Creative Commo...

Re: Copyright Question about Variety subheadings

Wow! This is very, very impressive work. Killer pictures...loaded with information. Congratulations for innovating idea. Please know that the work you saw is a collaboration of several of us. I used "I" because I uniquely take responsibility for the copyright implications. Thank you for commenting.
