Re: 1881-S VAM-1B vs VAM-67

I see on the pages that there is a question about the two subject VAMs possibly sharing the same reverse die. Looks like JR has seen VAM-67 coins both with (LDS) and without the chip in eagle's wing. fwiw, a quick mm comparison shows they cannot be the same reverse die (not even possible). so long ...

Re: Morgan 1921-S VAM-1BF

I tried to make this thing into a 21-P D2 reverse Kissov, if it helps. 21-s morgans can be identified as such by the overall look of the obv alone and a glance at the reverse usually confirms (even without a mintmark.) i say this to encourage you in the future that you can tell a 21-s the vast majo...

Re: i have seen some odd things on morgans but this is near the top - 89p 38a

hmm. i just can't get there that the head and beak are clashed that far apart. i'll need an overlay or another explanation. thanks for the responses and efforts so far.

thanks for the responses and help. i'm not sure i can quite understand what the jawline "clash" is. i have some speculations but that is all they are. i'll provide what i see and perhaps you can help me across the bridge. tia edited to add, a bigger version can be opened in a new tab or d/l. not sur...

the page says something about clashed eagle's head. does that refer to this unusual "clashing"?

Re: 1923 Unlisted Die Break?

Is this an unlisted die break or not a listable feature? It is not listed as a die break variety. Could this break be a diagnostic in another '23 VAM that I am just not finding? came across this and thought of your coin. don't see them often listed with neck break and nothing else but it does happe...

Re: 1923 peace Vam? doesn't seem to be listed can anyone help ?

while all peace dollars are vams, i can say to a 99% certainty, there are no known listed peace vams with a feature(s) like that. lines are just too straight and clean. something like that, if it were a coin attribute would be more along the lines of an error, not a vam. the lettering is 2 different...

I expect zero but I don't want to wait indefinitely to get these attributed and in my set. that is close to the practice i use for peace of mind. i'd rather spend extra and miss but know than to let...
