Re: striations anyone?

If I want the coin I wouldn't care, generally. And in some circumstances it might be a bonus.

Re: what caused this?

I've thought of this as two forms of mechanical damage doubling interacting - a little shear from a loose die during strike and then it gets pushed more at ejection I used to think that too, some sort of severe MD but I started seeing multiple examples of same obv's plus Leroy lists it as die marke...

Re: what caused this?

A manifestation of date hub doubling. Thanks for bringing this up cuz I've always wanted a more detailed explanation of this. Such a unique look to this kind of doubling, especially with wild ones like this. @vampicker @messydesk ?

I affectionately call them "Melted Dates"

It's an obsession at this point :lol: vampicker , what's the story with Blanchards, is it the company from New Orleans? 20200116_123808.jpg 20200116_123906.jpg 20200116_123849...

That is all πŸ˜–πŸ˜΄πŸ˜΄πŸ˜΄ So much to do, so little energy. Worth it for FUN tho, mostly to get to see everyone. Coins are secondary. I much prefer shop-hopping anyway. The deals are better and so is the material, typically.. But there is simply no substitute for the VAMradery :mrgreen: Wish y'all would come ...

Re: Starting an 1878 8tf collection

@messydesk has a great program to teach you how to spot all the reverses then narrow them down from there all quickly from memory. Highly suggest it if you still have to check markers on VW while hunting.

Re: A Dozen VAMs for 2020

I've been hunting it for over a year, flipping hundreds of 03o's and nada. I'll probably run across one eventually and even if it's a 7 I'll buy it but I have a feeling you keyword picture pickers will have the best shot. Better be quick!
