Re: 1901 O BOLD letter doubling on V 1A / 20

Thanks for all GREAT info, im still a bit confused as to the v20, i think v20 is the 1A eds right? I read the article/paper on doubling, great work, have to read a few times to let it sink in, that is the reason I suspected strike doubling. But someone mentioned "die class". Can someone educate me ...

Re: 1901 O BOLD letter doubling on V 1A / 20

Here is how I think about it. Let’s agree that EDS comes first, next MDS, and finally LDS. 1A is listed for clashed letter transfer. First clash with letter transfer equals EDS. The LDS has super hard letter transfer that shows the entire letter t. So everything in between, I would call MDS. I can s...

Re: 1901 O BOLD letter doubling on V 1A / 20

If I am reading the pages correctly, VAM-20 is the same die pair as VAM-1A, but the EDS that has no clashing. Your coin does clearly show letter transfer. That is why I called yours a 1A. For me, the problem with the VAM-20 page is that it says EDS before any clashing. But it shows so many clashed 1...

Re: 1901 O BOLD letter doubling on V 1A / 20

Until JB or JR can help us with 1A and 20 saying they are duplicate listings, I would call this a VAM-1A. I do agree MDS because you can see more than one clashed edge of the letter t, and it isn’t the desirable LDS.

Don’t the pages say that 1A is the same as 20?

Re: G.C. St-G varieties and lots of VAMs

Just noting one of the current G.C. listings possibly has an incorrect VSS label on it... the 1891 o VAM 8a is stickered as 1890 o VAM 2a2 on reverse. Appears it and the 1890 o VAM 2a2 got the stickers mixed up. Thank you I will contact them and have the photos corrected. It has been a learning pro...

Re: Darkside-have you seen this gouge?

Good clash area vs bad clash area Good clash area is an area that is a known or common area for a clash to show a listable feature. Bad clash area is an area that isn’t known for or very uncommon area for a clash to show a listable feature. This is a lot easier for me to point out on Morgans. For ex...

Re: Darkside-have you seen this gouge?

I’m thinking that is a clash mark and not a gouge. But I think it may not take too long for one of the Peace dollar VAMmers to help out.

78-S VAM-18/18A

I have a PCGS XF-45 1878-S VAM-18 or 18A. It is a nice XF example, no bad toning or bad marks. I am not sure the cut off between 18 and 18A. My coin has a fine crack in the same location as the photo on the 18A page. I would call it a fine crack not a break, but what do I know? :D I guess that I wil...

Re: 1879 CC Not listed double CC help

demetri Here is what I was talking about. Notice the VAM-2B die chips with clashed G. But it also has the VAM-7 die chip off of the jaw. What would you call this? VAM-2B, VAM-7, or VAM-2B/7? I don't know how it should be listed. To make the 79-CC even more complicated, it says that the VAM-7 obvers...

Re: 1904 O Morgan reverse die VAM help

There is still no photographic evidence of any clash or counter clash at this time. Sometimes it can be very difficult to show DIs. The reverse marker looks like 30B. What would you call it if there are no DIs? Can’t see the DIs yet. It can’t be 30 die one or 30 die two. Would you call it 30B EDS? K...

Re: 1921 P 17 berry D1 Necklace / new arrow head?

You posted photos of the arrow heads again.
I think there may be a misunderstanding of the term scribble zone.
For someone attributing 21-Ps, the scribble zone usually refers to the area between the eagle’s legs.
Could you post those photos?

Your close up of the bow is good.
Will you post a close up of the scribble zone that shows details as good as your bow photo?

When I’m trying to attribute a 1904-O. I start with the basics and go from there. Date location and MM location. In the beginning of this thread there was a request to help identify the reverse. I tried to help with that by asking how you would describe the mint mark location. Pinning down the mm lo...

Re: 1904 O Morgan reverse die VAM help

The red arrows that you place on your photos are not die clash marks.
