Re: ELITE 30 PEACE Candidate

There should be new list's created (Updated or maybe a part II) to take in compiling new VAM discoveries. That way the list will not be locked into a time capsule.

Re: 1892-CC What VAM ?

I can pull my coin and see if it matches yours. It is in SDB and will take a couple of days.

Re: 1923 D VAM 1B1 Confusion Solved

Roger,

I do not have the Peace Supplement. If you can come up with the correct listing, I'll make the changes for you.

Re: 1889-P Die Adjustment Strike?

All of the left stars and "MOTTO" are very weak. In order to see the 6 & 7 left stars as well as the E you have to tilt the coin and look at it under a scope. Check out the photos. I had to tilt the coin in an attempt to get good photo's. http://ec2-13-58-222-16.us-east-2.compute.amazonaws.com/w/ima...

1889-P Die Adjustment Strike?

Stopped by the local coin gallery Friday afternoon and picked-up this 1889-P Morgan Dollar. Let me know if you think it is a die adjustment strike.

Re: The Story Behind the 1879-S Rev of 1878

Thanks wayne. This seems to further confirm what i have been saying for the last several years. I have so many heavily overpolished reverse, and some obverses as well. And many of these dies were touched up to hide the over polishing. Even though i had no documented evidence of what i claimed, the ...

Re: The Story Behind the 1879-S Rev of 1878

In June of 1900 guess what happened again? The engraving department made changes to the quarter dies and those changes reduced the thickness of the dies which caused the stacking height of quarters to change. Once again (just like in late 1878 to early 1879 for the Morgan Dollar) nothing was passed ...

Re: The Story Behind the 1879-S Rev of 1878

The stacking of coins was a really big deal to folks. Especially out west. In July of 1900 there was a die change to the quarters and the Superintendent of the San Francisco Mint was upset about it. The change effected the stacking height (again). The folks thought if you had the same number of like...

Good to see the research materials are helpful. There are many opportunities to discover and learn. [You might send a nice note of appreciation to NNP for providing and hosting US Mint documents.] RWB PS: The B&W pages with dark horizontal bands are photocopies I made about 15-20 years ago.

Re: The Story Behind the 1879-S Rev of 1878

By March 19th the problem with stacking (thickness) has been resolved. The right reverse die was being used. Note the response.
