Re: O/T Dram

Not much of a drinker here. Only maybe a few times out of the year at family gatherings, once in a while if I go out or when I go to Vegas etc.

Re: Neat 79p Error... S/T?

I think it was the way I worded my initial response above guys. I apologize to VD. Neither of us thought it was a proof. Just commenting on how "proofy" it appears.

She really does have quite the unique look to her though.

Re: Neat 79p Error... S/T?

That can not be a proof 1879 dollar. The reverse is simply wrong. Whatcha mean by that JR? And just for the record I only thought it could be a proof at first glance for only about a second or two. But damned if it's not both wickedly hammered AND weakly struck. Cool piece simply for that odd dicho...

Re: Neat 79p Error... S/T?

the denticles made me think proof! I didn't want to go there but that's the very first thing I thought when I saw it too. An impaired proof. I mean, the rims are more crisp and squared than any BS I can remember plus every single device -that isn't effected by the strike-thru- is full, strong, cris...

Neat 79p Error... S/T?

This just came in in a lot of junk dollars. Looks like someone assumed it was a VF due to the weak obverse strike and black irridecence. But as you can see the reverse is fully struck BU. And the reeding is full and deep. The surfaces, though, are sexy, creamy and near PL. Thought I'd show it off an...

80o v74... odd feature

Hey guys, came across this girl that I have as v74. But, what is this very localized (3 spots) doubling I've highlighted? Very strong on 2 berries and one leaf. Coin looks fairly EDS and PL. Is it a strange manifestation of die polishing? It does not quite look like typical hub doubling or MD. She a...

Re: 1885 P Morgan with evidence of a rusted die on Liberty's face. This time with pictures.

If you like face pitting start looking at 83p's. I swear that 80-90% of the the ones I come across have extreem pitting from fine to coarse on liberty's head/neck. So much so that it's a strong obverse mint diagnostic for me.

Re: 85p with MANY Threadlikes

Thanks guys. Leroy it is! I'll bet he'll be happy to see this feature on such a gorgeous hogh grade BU PL coin. I hadn't come across the 81p v17 before and didn't know about condensation impressions. To me, being so thin, small and plentiful I assumed it was something like a random patch of rag lint...

85p with MANY Threadlikes (UPDATE: Back From LVA)

Hey guys. I could use some help on this one. This is the most threadlikes I've seen on a single die (a patch of multiple small ones in the cap. ) I've gone down the list and even disregarding the threadlikes I'm coming up dry. Leroy pile? Or did I miss it? Thanks! Disregard the "holder" :lol: 201807...

Re: 1928-P Super Pick

I'm pretty sure the dealer thought it was a 23. I've had 2 dealers both look at a 23 thinking it was a 28 when it clearly wasn't. This is just the reverse side of that. "Its a cruddy 23, throw it in the bucket." I'd bet money that's what happened.
