1925 Unknown VAM with Two Die Gouges

Been through the list. Not matching anything, although there is slight doubling in right lower wing edge as in VAM-18.
However, there are two gouges, one on obverse, a vertical gouge above and to the left of I of IN; and, one on reverse, in rays to the right of middle olive leaves.

1923 VAM-1CZ or something else?

First, let me apologize for using PNG photos. Neither my old phone nor my old computer provide JPEG and I haven't yet figured out how to convert PNG to JPEG, but I will. Now the coin: Probably a 1CZ "Die File Lines Upper Obverse & Left Reverse" given the strong evidence of die file lines in vicinity...

Re: 1889 Double Reverse EVERYWHERE

Sure thing. I’ve looked at the top post a dozen times if I’ve looked at it once. In my post I wrote “hub” doubling when I meant machine or ejection doubling. Just a foggy brained night typo. The machine doubling is so extensive that I questioned it. I’m getting much better at distinguishing one from...

Re: 1889 Double Reverse EVERYWHERE

More photos. Has everything the VAM-31 has including the die scratch above the boomerang clash. Ear is slightly doubled inside, though very tough to pick up.

Is all the reverse doubling just unlistable hub doubling?

1889 Double Reverse EVERYWHERE

I don't see any listing with all this doubling on the reverse. It's everywhere. * Doubled In God We Trust * Doubled top edge of eagle's right wing * Doubled wreath bow, right outside and inside left * STATES OF AMERICA and star * Right and left wreath leaves and berries * Top of eagle's head * Middl...

1922 VAM-1L Dot on Eagle's Neck Question

There are two photos on the listing, one of the dot on the eagle's neck and one of the B in LIBERTY. The B on my 1922 does not have the die gouge inside the lower loop. It does have, though, a diagonal die scratch through the tiara below the B. Could there be two different obverses sharing the dot o...

Re: 1923 1BP or something else?

David, Here are two additional photos of the deep diagonal die scratch below G of GOD. While still not the best photos, the bottom one in particular shows there is PMD "riding" over the raised scratch. Under the loop it looks as if the edge of another coin scraped the bump. If you were to accept tha...

Re: 1923 1BP or something else?

Thanks David. The diagonal line/scratch is a raised “speed bump”. Under magnification there are PMD lines running over top of the bump. Whatever caused the blackish scrape in that area “rode” over the speed bump cutting into it. Under magnification from certain angles the lines running over top of t...

1923 1BP or something else?

Spent a lot of time getting to the VAM I believe is most likely here: a VAM-1BP Die File Lines Wing, but there's only one photo in the listing and no other verbiage by which to definitively nail it down. Of particular interest here is a deep diagonal die scratch below G of GOD that I did not pin dow...

Re: 1924 Unknown VAM, die chip at neck-jaw line

Thanks CascadeChris. I appreciate the reply. Looks like the die gouge of the 23-P V-11 is much lower and closer to the WE.

Is this a possible submission to Leroy later in the year?

Searching 1924 VAM list, I was unable to find one with this die chip at the neck-jaw intersection. I would appreciate any assistance. Thank you.

1881-S VAM-1E Slight Engraved Two Leaf Ends *New 2019

My 1881-S has the Reverse C3a with two over polished wreath leaves above N in One. The engraved lines at the leaf ends are very apparent. However, I do not believe the coin has the Obverse III2 1 as I do not see the die polishing lines at the upper hair curl. Is there another VAM with same reverse b...

1926-S, No Die Gouge B, Heavy Clashing Under R in Liberty, No Ray Transfer

The subject line says it all. Not sure what VAM this is. This is not 1AF2 without the die gouge at B, but appears to have the heavy clashing under R in LIBERTY.

1889 Boomerang

Been a while. Tough getting back into the swing. Have this 1889 with boomerang from wing to G in God. Wing is doubled. In God We Trust is doubled. Not seeing anything on the obverse at neck. Does the boomerang have to be stronger to see a G on the obverse?

Re: 1884-O/O $1 Morgan Silver Dollar, ANACS MS 63, VAM-10, Hot 50

Thanks. I appreciate the feed back. I've only been VAMing since last Fall. I'm not sure why folks call it a Hot 50 if it's really not a hot or hard to find item.
