Re: An E Exercise...

My vote would be for a phantom E, but I can see why you would take the chance.

Looks like machine/strike doubling to me.

Re: 1879 o listed on another forum

Looks real to me, too... it would be massive machine doubling if that is what has occurred. As significant as this is, I can't imagine that it has remained undiscovered this long if is real and NOT machine doubling. I have seen modern Chinese counterfeits that are clashed (probably intentionally) re...

Re: 1926 s VAM 2F3? Peace Dollar unattributed on holder NGC 64

Do you see anything from 2F1 or 2F2? Pics aren't clear enough to see the clash or the R.

Can someone please add these pictures to the 1AQ page? I still haven't figured that out yet.

Re: 1923 P VAM 1A Whisker Jaw Progression Thread

Come on, guys... amongst us all we should be able to produce pictures of all the stages (and figure out if 1A2 should even exist!) Let's save John some work digging through the VW1.0 huge file to find what was lost in the transition! Please post your 1A1 and 1A2 pics!

Re: 1923 P VAM 1A Whisker Jaw Progression Thread

Great idea Raybob! Actually, Mike, it was your idea! :lol: I just liked it! We have placeholders on the 1A1 and 1A2 pages for a discussion of the progression of the break, but there is nothing there. I don't know what we had on VW1.0 as I was not really into the Darkside when I was previously activ...

It may still be a discovery...with a really cool planchet defect, too! (Or really regrettable PMD...)

1923 P VAM 1A Whisker Jaw Progression Thread (Pictures Needed! Please help!)

Mike (@collectingsince65) posted a really nice 23 P VAM 1A1 and asked about the progression. I am sure that among all of us we can assemble every stage of 1A in high grade coins to add the progression images to the 1A1 and 1A2 pages. Here is mine (1A2): 20190313_204122.jpg 20190313_204144.jpg S20190...

That first pic looks like a planchet issue more than a die issue.

Re: 1923 VAM 1A1 Whisker Jaw Peace dollar

Hmmm.... if we are looking at trying to identify all of the stages, would it make sense to have everyone who has one submit good, clear LFCPs of their Whisker Jaws? (Sorry; don't mean to hijack your thread; it just made me think...) Nice coin by the way. I picked one raw of the 'Bay a few months ago.

Re: Another 1923-S, die file lines and pitting I-B

There was someone in San Fran in 1923 who seemed to get carried away A LOT with the file... so many 23-S dies with crazy file lines. I've got about 3 on my desk now that I am trying to match up.

Re: Leroy Worthy?

I don't see displacement there, but I don't have it in hand. If you have a package of 3 or more coins ready to go, throw it in. If its the only coin you have to send, I would wait until I had others. It's $5/per coin with a min of $15 (so if you are sending less than 3, you are still sending $15).

Re: We all have our favorite Vams

I don't have a favorite VAM per se; rather I am partial to clashed varieties in both the Morgan and Peace series. The Morgans are often much more exciting than the Peace, though.

Re: 1922 P VAM 2C1 or 2C2?

I don't have the supplement and am going by the pictures on the VAM pages. The coin seems to be in between Lance's coin on the stages between page and the pic on the C2 page. I am not trying to be argumentative; just trying to figure it out because it is in between.

Ray, I think you know better? The information on the site tells you what a 2C1 and a 2C2 is.
I think it is C2. Just looking for confirmation.
