If you can see the E than it’s a 36A.

Re: 1883 O VAM 49A - Does it Exist?

Looks like a nice coin with mirrors and early. Got me a little stumped , does not appear to match lines in the 1C series mm and hard to say it matches what I see in the plates in the 2004 supplement for the 49. The stuff in the bow of your picture has got me looking at a few others. Do you see this ...

Brian,

If you can, take a close up picture of the mm and post it.

Re: Hypothetical question

I have regularly seen BU rolls in the past few years with just 2 varieties in the entire roll. I seldom see other than that unless I go to a show where there appears to be many put together rolls. I suppose it depends on who and where you do your buying from.

Re: 1883 O VAM 49A - Does it Exist?

I show the first plate photos for 49 and 49A in 2004 and only of reverse. If you have something that matches the plates from 2004 for 49 or 49A or if you have a slab AOH as 49 or 49A, simply compare it to a 1C1 or 1C2 reverse. The mm position and file lines inside mm of 49 plate are a match for 1C1/...

Re: OT: earthquake in Boise, ID

Glad everyone is ok in Boise.

I was a few miles away from the one in SLC a few weeks ago, first experience, I’m ok if it’s my last. Nature is way more powerful than any of us and will slap you down when your not expecting it.

Re: 1903 P Reverse Hub Doubling

JB,

It appears your pictures were used in VAM 13 discovery coin, if so did you notice this doubling? I assume it would not be listed if it were hub doubling.

Re: Who else is growing a Quarantine Beard?...

Alan,

This is what happens when you keep looking for varieties for years, that have pictures associated with them but don't seem to exist.

Its like a bird who has forgot where its nest with the chicks is, and keeps finding "empty nests".

Re: Who else is growing a Quarantine Beard?...

I had a head start ,on the top side, towards the end of 2016 I said f-it. Haven’t started the tres hombres beard yet. At least still working, considered essential to DHS. Odd my son in law sells desks and is considered essential at the local level.

Re: Is this a 1921-P VAM 3AB ?

There appears to be a small gouge between the denticles at wing tip on plate photo but also appears like yours is earlier than the plate photo so it it may have happened after yours was struck if it is not on your coin.

Re: Recognize these 21-D scribbles

I think it may be a VAM 16. Some of the scribbles and mm position appear to match, and LVA obv description is a match, with the exception the right starts are all lightly doubled or tripled towards rim.

Re: 1921-P VAM-3ED1

Reminds me of what some very old varnishes look like on wood, although the scale is much different. I wonder if there is a thin film of something on the coin.

Interesting remnant and question

This seems interesting that it never broke off. Really nice PL coin that had just a few really hard scrapes. This one is metal pushed up into a spike. Question is the brown stuff. I see small patches of this in the fields and is sunken and mostly small irregular shapes that appear to me like etched ...

Recognize these 21-D scribbles

Obverse appears to match VAM-7, however reverse is crack free with over polished left wing and scribbles I cannot match.

Re: Morgan Grading Question

I acquired this raw and the thing that stood out for me was how clean the fields are and the over all appearance. I thought surely a MS65. The first pictures were from my old iPhone and these are from my Nikon. Not sure if the second set is any better after reduction in size. Have always had trouble...
