Re: White Paper Test

Neat trick. I just tried it on my AU coin, and as per Professor Baumgart's theory, a gray shadow appears near the tip of the
bust point at the neck. I like it !! Actually, I suppose I should have hoped that it didn't show, then it would have been MS.

Chris

I'm not familiar with the "white paper test". Please explain how one does it, and what you are looking for. Thanks.

My first pick of the new year

I found this one- a very high grade for a 1901 (probably AU-55 to maybe AU-58). I noticed it was a Vam 5 too . This is probably the highest grade for a raw 1901 which I've seen in doing this over 10 years. Coin looks like it was dipped but I think she will grade. Tell me what you think. JDL_1901_P_V...

Re: 8 TF confirmation- new pick 14.6?

I'm hoping for an MS-63 grade which will be determined when I send it in thru JB. The coin has a PL obverse, but not the reverse. I'm excited.

8 TF confirmation- new pick 14.6?

Enclosed are my pictures of a recent 8TF coin with the A1C reverse. I think I know what it is, but I want to make sure...

Congrats Chris
Very nice coin. Have fun with the attribution game- 21s are rather tricky.

Re: How's The New Vam Site?

Why are there no "reverse" pictures listed. Instead, we have 2 obverse full length repeated pictures. Can you say redundant?

Thanks Mitch. Every so often you get lucky staring at some raw coins, when suddenly a little checkmark smiles back at you.

New checkmark pick

I'm thinking I've got the 16-A now to go along with my 16-B Discovery. Nico's pictures are helpful. I thought I had another 16-B for a minute or two. What do you all think?
