Re: 1922-D VAM-2A evil mimic - unknown darkside find

Nice way to kill about 30 minutes on a sunny Friday afternoon? Marching through all the varieties on the 22-D B2 reverse page. Found nothing that I can see that matches the cracking pattern. I'll hold on sending this one in until we get the nod of approval by David C unless one of you Peace(ful) exp...

Re: 1922-D VAM-2A evil mimic - unknown darkside find

yep matches my Vam 2AA Thanks, but unfortunately, nope. Perhaps because I didn't share the best pictures, so here are some more. Cracks on the left and right sides of the obverse don't quite align to the 2AA. For example, the crack through the G is the one that progresses across to the neck, not li...

Re: How Long Have You Collected our Beloved Morgan Dollars ???

Dad and his mates got me hooked around 1973 or 1974 when I was about 7. Had a paper route that paid $7 every two weeks and their 'coin club' (excuse to get out of the house and away from honey-do lists?) met every other week... and, by god, there was almost always a Morgan for 'sale' for... $7. If I...

Re: 1922-D VAM-2A evil mimic - unknown darkside find

VAM 2A1 .. Tom, I think his coin is the other one in the post. Not the 2A1 that he is showing as a comp. I’m not much help on the Peace dollars. Thanks, and yes the 2A1 is there as a comparator. The cracking pattern of the coin in question is not likely the 2A1 even though it has many similarities....

1922-D VAM-2A evil mimic - unknown darkside find

No offense, but I'm not a fan of the dark side and this coin is why. I've looked through the B2 break guide as I'm pretty sure this should be found there, but I'm coming up empty. Closest thing I can find is a 2A http://ec2-13-58-222-16.us-east-2.compute.amazonaws.com/wiki/1922-D_VAM-2A , but clearl...

Re: 78-S VAM-108 Reg & PL in census

Speaking of 78-S VAM-108. The V-108 Discovery PC was auctioned today by Stacks Bowers. Winning bid was $144. I'm happy to admit that the coin and holder is on the way to my house as we speak. I consider it an honor to own because of my profound admiration of Logan and what he's done for the hobby. ...

Re: SSDC VAM Value Guide corrections?

Made the list administrative changes, except for 1921 VAM-2/2A. I do not see the 2 or 2A in the catalogue. I did not touch valuations. A serious amount of thanks and appreciation to everyone who keeps this machine moving. No small feat and something I wished we could 'reimburse' for somehow. I know...

Agree, wickedly cool either way.

Being a Wyoming boy, this reminds me of the Tetons or the Sawtooth Mountains in Idaho:

Thanks, John. ashmore86 and/or alefzero I was just on the SSCD site and see that the following are still outstanding issues. The following Top 100 are missing from the price guide. Apologies if they're not there because data is still being collected: * 1891-CC VAM-3 and VAM-7. * 1891-S VAM-3 dies 1,...

Great post, great coin, great collectable... Best part to me is the quote, Kurt28 and link to the writing. How much of our current problems could be alleviated by really standing as true as we can letting the past be the past, not sugar-coating it, not belittleing it, not denying it, but learning fr...

Re: Silver dollars in circulation - August 1880

Wickedly cool stuff. Thanks for sharing.

It would be fascinating to figure out just how rare, for example, the 1893-5-O dollars really are. The numbers in the graph suggest them to be much lower than I'd suspected!

I have an relatively untrained voice here, but the pitting around the date and RIBU are not strongly there. I don't see an upclose picture of the first 3 stars on the right, but your FCP doesn't show them very clearly. Yet this might be a different die state where they're simply not as stron? The re...
