Re: Die Stage versus Die State from VW10 Board by VAMPICKER

From the phpbb Coin Help Community forum: "Die State is a point in a particular die's useful lifespan. If a die is normally used to mint a million coins then Early Die State may be the condition of the die for the first 300,000 coins struck, Middle Die State the 300,001 - 600,000th coin, Late Die St...

Re: Die Stage versus Die State from VW10 Board by VAMPICKER

"...There are two ways of describing die progressions. The first focuses on die wear. The description of the wear has been termed 'die state' by Delma Romines, the developer of the theory..." "...The theory behind 'die stage' progressions has seen several revisions through the years. The general the...

Re: past posts

Any chance that access to the old threads will come to fruition? It would be nice to have to fix the reference links at the VAM pages.
Thx.

Re: 1898-P experts....come on in..

That is a dreaded VAM-1. Not associated with VAM-2C. Note the nub under the olive branch and eagle's right talon. See the de-listed VAM-7 page on this site, and the VNA 1898-P page. The VAM-2C does have a LDS that where the dies were polished and re-married that removed the thread-like, but the pol...

Re: Pics in messenger question...

I don't see a way to do it in a PM other than the image or url coding. Both require pulling pics from an external source, not to include your c:drive.

If there is a way to upload a pic from a PC to a PM, that's something JB would have to turn on.

Re: New pics for 1887-O VAM11.1,11.2 and11.3

I am right there with you but LVA made the call. & Thanks for the work! Wayne took the lead on the picture update. Also, can you post a scan of the letter here so we can link back to the thread to show the die update? Wayne has it linked, but having the letter there would add more provenance to the...
