Re: 1900 S tripled S, Die Breaks Date

I'd checked VAM 14 and did not see a match. Base of 1 sloped on V14. Top of 0's rounded. The wing-neck gap scratches (see pic) are not the same on this coin, and I don't see the cap scratch. Date closeup attached. I'd gone through the listed breaks and did not see any with cracks/breaks as pronounc...

Re: 1900 S tripled S, Die Breaks Date

Where ever this post is headed, rest assured that this exact die pair in earlier die states does not have a doubled mint mark. Alan is right here. Is there anyway you can check the date for doubling on the x900? My die study has shown there are at least several undocumented 1900-S Morgan Dollars wi...

Re: Documents requested from NARA

Think it all comes down to what part of the country you live in. Here in the Heartland our church has been open for 10 weeks at full capacity. A normal Sunday we have any where from 600-1,000 in attendance. Mask are not required, but social distancing is practiced. We have a band and folks sing. No ...

Re: 1900 S tripled S, Die Breaks Date

Can you take some photos of the right side of the obverse, back of the cap, top of the cap, forehead and nose? In addition, do you see any die cracks in the lower hair. On the reverse can you list the die cracks?

Re: Guess what I found in the $30.00 box of Morgan's

It has been mentioned, including in this thread. Like I stated above creating a new topic with a little information like the general purpose of the study and the folks involved would let the VAM community know a study is in the works. I would venture to say most folks do not read every single post ...

Re: Guess what I found in the $30.00 box of Morgan's

You guys are trodding right into active research that got stymied by Leroy's situation due to COVID. I wanted to do this in person, but now I feel I have to launch preemptive strike just to keep the details straight. Still refuse to put the 23A loaner in the mail. I have the details worked out and ...

Re: Guess what I found in the $30.00 box of Morgan's

Mike,

The close-up photo of the neck says it all. There is no doubt it is the same obverse die as VAM-23A. Thanks for posting the photos it sure answered a lot of questions and opened the door for others. Think I know the story on the reverse die.

Re: Guess what I found in the $30.00 box of Morgan's

Thank you Mike. Could I get you to take a close up of the neck and the back of the cap where the cap clash would be. On the neck there may be a chunk missing. On the reverse could you take a close up from the wing to the N of IN? Thanks!

Re: Guess what I found in the $30.00 box of Morgan's

How strangely fortuitous this find is too... what a coincidence that this is found the same time @fogie gets the Leroy Supplements and added the 7A work @shortnock @messydesk and I (with an honorable mention to @dave700x) did in linking it to the 23A. Amazing. Chris you are so right about the work....

Super suck of the year is right!@!! Great find Wayne, you certainly deserve The VAM gods smiling down on you Thanks Mitch. The shop has a lot of 1889-P's come in and I can't tell you how many I have looked at, but I never ever thought a VAM-23A would come in. I am still having a hard time believing...
