Re: 1882-S VAM-36A/37A die chip wing tip

Thank you for the respond, but I'm more confused now. On my coin, the obverse clearly shows a vertical die scratch above top right of I in LIBERTY. And the Phrygian cap is slightly doubled at top edge. This coin has to be VAM-36 obverse die. The reverse has the tiny die chip at top of right wing. N...

Re: 1882-S VAM-36A/37A die chip wing tip

In all honesty, that sub return confused the heck out of me so I put it away and have been meaning to come back to it some time. I think Leroys letter is posted in a thread linked to one or all of the pages from that sub. See if his words make sense out of it. If you can't find the letter tag me aga...

Oh, wait. Misread that as 1885. Never mind. The 1895 on my desk is not from an original mint sewn bag. It's a 2-headed Chinese pot metal piece.

Acetone geyser.. PSA

So I was running low on acetone and got a new quart at Walmart. When I get home I usually "burp" my new acetone bottles as they expand a bit on the shelves. Well, this time it exploded on my face like Old Faithful. Not too bad, I quickly washed my face and arms and my eyelids did their job in quickl...

I thought this had to be cast, but Alexander's book on the subject strongly suggests this was struck. As such, I'm even more amazed by it.

Re: My 1880 CC NGCMS63DPL TOP 100 vam 5

Wow. Nice super one, and a T-100 to boot! Might only go PL today, can't quite tell from the pics for sure but looks like that could be the case. Still a killer tho, and that reverse! 😍

...Even if it ends up only being a PL by today's tight standards, she's still in a DPL holder! 🥳😎
