Re: Need help with 21 D

I could not match the scribbles at all. The small dot looked familiar, but I could not find it, either.

Re: Darkside Help, Please.

Reverse has been heavily polished as well. Certain elements are gone as a result. Left shoulder of eagle has been heavily polished. Lots of file lines through the rays into the motto. 20181026_105255.jpg 20181026_105324.jpg Shoulder spikes have been filed away along with the tip of the ray that shou...

Re: Darkside Help, Please.

Here's the doubling on the BERT. Looks like machine doubling, but I'm rusty on this.

Darkside Help, Please. Clashed 1923-S (Updated with LVA Letter and Plate Photos)

Some interesting stuff on a 23-S that I can't match up to anything existing. Coin was clashed and heavily polished. There are significant file lines in the space between the bun and the head, all around the bun and into the Y, and on the reverse around the eagle's head and shoulders and into the mot...

Re: Coming back after many years away...

Thanks, Ed. I spent many, many hours on VW1.0 from 2006-2010... then life got in the way. Having 2 in diapers at the time eliminated my "free" time for looking at coin porn (as my wife used to call VW). This place and the members are an invaluable resource.

Re: 1902-O Coin poop

it appears to be a foreign body, not part of the coin. I say damage.

Re: Coming back after many years away...

ImpairedSquirrel... yes, I am a Ray. The screen name was a nickname, Raybob, given by a co-worker years ago. (You can look at the VAM page for my favorite discovery, 1901S VAM 14 for my full name.)

Crabscape, that would be the old "hangnail", right?

Re: Coming back after many years away...

CascadeChris: I was talking with a colleague about coin collecting and got into a discussion about die varieties and VAMs in general. He was curious about learning more, so I told him about VAMWorld. I had no idea the old VW had gone poof along with all of Wikispaces. I pulled up VW2.0 looking for i...

Coming back after many years away...

I was very active on the old Wiki VAMWorld many years ago and have been away since about 2009 or 10. Just starting back again after a long absence from VAMming. Just wondering how many of the "old" crew are still around?
