Re: 1884O/O

Based on the surrounding features having the same doubling it looks to be strike/machine doubling rather than a re-punched mm.

Re: Low grade attribution on ANACS holder

It’s the 87-O 30A. The clash above Dollar in leaves shows enough to know what it is.

Low grade attribution on ANACS holder

Was wondering about very low grade varieties that the letter transfer is not visible, however many of the clashes that are only present on the particular variety can be seen. Would it still be AOH as the variety?

Privately Made Question

Are there theories or facts as to why the contemporary counterfeits (privately made) that are listed appear to first start with 1893 date?

Re: Breakout

I don't have a vice set up so I use 20" Channel Lock Pliers to control the amount of force to limit the amount of shatter.

Re: A clarification of why Roger Burdette is posting on VAM World

Yes Roger, Thank you for the research you do that many of us are either unable or unwilling to do. Thank you for taking the time to share with us the information that opens up the small windows in time that we can understand more about the process and events that influenced the minting of coins.

Re: Cost of shipping bullion and coins - Western Mints

Great to see these correspondence, thanks for sharing Roger.

Dennis it is beautiful and sad to know many schools do not teach this anymore. What I find amazing is that they were still using dip or quill pens at this time and still produced such appearance of perfection.

Re: Do you think you have a Doubled Die?

My perception on the term "doubled die" is that it should occur on all coins struck by that die. I have thought and said that doubling due to die wear and work on the die should not be listed as doubling. If it is continued to be listed, should it be described more clearly so not to confuse people i...

Re: 1935s VAM-2 Perhaps, With Wing Break (or PMD possibly)

I am not an expert in Peace dollars but believe the fact that the wing tip is touching the rim is due to how worn the coin is. The rim and details/devices grow slightly wider with heavy wear. Look at the rim of a MS Peace dollar of same year and mm and notice how high it is as well as how wide it is.

Lee I did check, it’s a 45. I will have to check my very first 45 as I attributed it prior to 101.

Re: 1921-P VAM 13A pix & question

Let me correct myself just rotated under the scope and both have a really fading line. First pi is when I did not see it second is rotated in the light. Your denticles look earlier than mine. Is the 13A the earlier die stage? B301F81C-CE4A-4B7E-82F3-0FF1D07AFF08.jpeg 62E65DFB-F020-4B05-B2F6-6230CA3F...

Dennis, neither of my two recent VAM 13 acquisitions have the scratch. Have a few others of 13 and 13A that I can not verify presently.

1883-O VAM 33/33A

I just read the letter from Leroy to JR about the hub debris in 33A that was part of the discussion on Russ's submission. It appears Leroy said he was revising VAM 33. I did not see the actual revision text and it does not appear anything was changed on VAM 33 in VW listing nor does it state a revis...
