scribbles help needed

This 1921-P D1 reverse has be me stumped, and both the scribbles and crack guides have me frustrated at how limited they are. I really feel like I've seen both the 2 horizontal lines in the left scribbles area, and the crack from trust to AM before. Can anyone help? ust-AM crack.jpg scribbles 1.jpg ...

Re: Grade Opinions

Wow. This is tough, because I don't care for the color and the patchy obverse toning.

My call is 63PL.

Would someone please add this to both the attribution page and the Scribbles Guide?

retained strike-thru scrap?

The "hat" on the S in PLURIBUS on this 1921-P is kind of fun – but what is it?

Re: 1889 23A

Mega-congrats to both parties!
This is only the 4th example I am aware of trading hands since 2004, all of them between private parties and all of them AU58s.

Re: 1921-P... Scribbled Scratches and Broken "2" in Date...?

OK, that explains it.
I have 5 VAM 3DAs and none of them have the gouge. So you may have a new addition to the 3DA sequence.

Re: 1921-P... Scribbled Scratches and Broken "2" in Date...?

My bad... I thought you were talking about the crack.

I see what looks like a gouge through the E in one photo, but it doesn't look too convincing in the other photo, so I can't really offer much of an opinion.

Re: 1921-P... Scribbled Scratches and Broken "2" in Date...?

What you're seeing through TES on the reverse is a die crack, which are profoundly common (and sometimes more extensive than makes any sense) on 1921-Ps.

There are D1 and D2 crack guides elsewhere on this site that many of us use to make VAM attributions, rather than using scribbles.

Re: 1921-P... Scribbled Scratches and Broken "2" in Date...?

First of all, you see which reverse type you have (D1 or D2). Your coin is a D2, which about 80% of 1921-Ps are. Then you see if it has scribbles (your last photo), which your coin has a TON of, and which makes things very easy. Then you go to the 1921-P D2 Reverse Scribbles page and a start scrolli...

Mitch:
That's it! Thanks!
But I can't believe it isn't in the die crack guide. And the scribbles guide obviously needs this updated LDS photo.

Re: 1921-P help needed

There are also a few very old cracks on the coin:

There are a couple of strong gouges in the lower part of the Y in Liberty's headband, and a lot of polishing lines between the cotton bolls:

1921-P help needed

This is a D1 reverse. There are no scribbles, but there is a heavy horizontal gouge at the bottom of the right opening, and a long, snake-shaped gouge on the eagle's abdomen: raw1921 scribbles.jpg By far the most distinction feature on the coin (if this isn't a new discovery I can't believe it doesn...

At Greysheet Bid it's pretty darn hard to say it's too much.
