Re: ANACS Grades In

Nice. Which Dragon die? And not bad on the 1c2! Mine was a raw Christmas gift from a fellow member and friend that came back from PC in 62. Have never been able to cherrypick ANY buffer yet, though. Go figure.

Re: 1883-O_VAM-57 DMPL Cameo EDS Die Pair

I would say the doubled ear would be de-listed as a pup due to being a die wear artifact and not hub doubling. The lack of beveling, however, could cause a spearation. Just my guess. The opinions of the J's would obviously be closest to what the big guy would probably do though. And I have to ask Lo...

Re: New VAM-e by Leroy

Leroy's focus was on the RPM itself and why it looks the way it does. The obverse isn't part of the story he's bringing to light. The VAM 4 is much easier to find and is availible in mint state. Both VAM 4 and 28 are well represented in AU grades Thanks JR. I was pretty sure I've come across nice o...

Nailed it Mitch. Thanks! Curious why Leroy omitted the severe beveling. Strange. It should at least be mentioned on the page to direct keyword searches to the page. And Iif anyone wants to migrate any of these pics or link this thread feel free :)

Re: 81o w/ Heavily Beveled Liberty Bust

Thanks Loren. 16 is a no match. If figured it might be clash removal but I've never seen this kind of clash removal / beveling to this extent. Lee, I've seen it before, not necessarily 81o but every one I've seen is maybe the top of the cap or maybe the hair V. But nothing to this extent and the onl...

81o w/ Heavily Beveled Liberty Bust

Hey guys. Can anyone help out on this one. Check out all the beveling at top of cap, profile, neck/chin V and the cap V. Look familiar to anyone? I'm coming up snake eyes. Thanks :)

Neat for what it is. Although I've heard there's a similar one out there. An authentic 89 v23A but the reverse punch was changed out to "ASS" :lol:

UNIQUE 1890cc "Tailbar"

Hey guy, I'm trying to build up my buying funds for LB. I absolutely LOVE this piece but I know someone here may cherish and want it more. It's a Tailbar in a period era contemporary sterling folderover bezel. It had to be put in there sometime in the 1890s-1900s imo. Anyway, feel free to PM me with...

Re: 86O E Clasher

Sexy VAM ron. Too bad about the swipe hairlines on obv but its the rev that matters anyway 8-)

Also, curious what this means -'"the grade of this coin will determine it would qualify as a V-1A2."- why would the grade determine which VAM she is?

Re: I FINISHED the Kimpton 12 set

Man I'd love to dive into actually completing a nice set run but the temptation to sell as a whole or break it up and sell off individually after a year or two would be too much, probably.

Re: OT -- visit old Carson City Mint

If you're just interested in coins then maybe half hour to an hour depending on how long you stay at each display and if Ken is striking silver CC commems on the original press or not. However, if you'd like to tour the whole museum -which I HIGHLY suggest- it would take 1-2 hours on average again d...

Re: my new 1903-O has character!

Super coin Dennis! I like my VF 20 but a 66, thats a whoa too! About the "gouges" at ONE, are they gouges or polishing lines? The term seems to be interchangeable for the feature depening on the date/VAM. Just something I've been wondering for a while.

I started using Loren's link above (without clearing cookies again) and it has worked great. It has logged me out but only once, during the last entire 2 days or so. Guess I should clear my cookies again though.

Re: 1878-S Vam 26 EDS, Vam 60, Vam 57’s Vam 26 LDS Long Nocks B-1 Rev

So, if true, does that mean that every v60 would technically be a filled die striking error with missing non-device elements? :? :o :lol:
