Re: Darkside Question - Artifact of Clash or a Break?

I've got a bunch of 4 inch binders filled with Morgans (all attributed) and one binder with a complete set of Peace Dollars and a few extra 22s and 23s. I was just never comfortable grading Peace Dollars and find them hard to attribute. Figure it's time to.learn to do both and this is a great place ...

Re: Darkside Question - Artifact of Clash or a Break?

Bumping up in hope that some of the Peace guys might see it and help with my re-education in the ways of the Dark Side. :D

Looks burned on the back. Some sort of heat damage?

D'OH! All this time, I've been reading the headline as 21-D! :oops:

I need to spend more time reading these threads on a comuter and not my phone! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Re: 1921-P D1 reverse help

Looking at these on my computer for the first time (was using my phone previously). The TY pic looked like a strike thru on the small screen. Blowing it up on a big monitor, I can see it is a gouge. I agree; send it to Leroy. That is pretty cool. I still want to see the mint mark more clearly. The a...

Re: 1921-P D1 reverse help

The rim looks like a placket flaw, perhaps a lamination. Some of the other stuff looks like PMD. The LIBERTY thing looks like a strike thru. I like this one. Check that arrow head again. I know that there are some varieties that reference file lines on the arrow head(s). The cracks don't look big en...

Darkside Question - Artifact of Clash or a Break?

I've always been more of a Morgan guy, but the Darkside has always held some allure. As I am getting back in the game after an 8 year absence, I am looking more at Peace Dollars and trying to learn my way around them. Morgan clashes are easy for me; Peace Dollars, not so much. I've got a few clashed...

I think it is VAM 35 based on the picture. (I assume that you meant to type 35 and not 45.)

Re: 1878-S VAM6 DDO "RIB" with DDR and RPM...

Ant, the best way to describe this is that each VAM is comprised of coins struck from a particular pair of dies. Typically, the markers will all be the same on every coin made from that pair of dies, but there will be die wear and cracks that will develop that eventually become big enough to warrant...

If you look at the VAM 6 page, you will see some photos of all the letters in the motto. Your R I B does not match at all.

Take a look at VAM 35. The r matches, as does the doubling in I and B.

WIth discoveries, you are going to strike out far more than you ever connect... There are many very experienced collectors who have never had a discovery of a new variety. Don't let it slow you down or make you quit. Keep looking and keep educating yourself. Look at the guides that are available on ...

I am sorry, but I don't see any clashing or a partial E. As I have mentioned previously, it is very easy to convince yourself that you see something that simply isn't there. I do it all the time, so do many others here. That's the benefit of these boards; getting fresh eyes with no dog in the fight ...

Re: Is this LVA Worthy?

1882-O VAM 29A. Since I did not see it in the description and there were no photos of other die markers available, I was curious as to whether it would be appropriate to send in for a revision. John let me know thru a PM that they were part of the 29A already.

Re: Is this LVA Worthy?

Thanks, John. Also, thanks for the input on the coin.

Should these images be added to the page? I posted the query because there was nothing like these pictures on the page. I would do it, but I haven't figured out how, yet.

I have the same problem. My message is trapped in outbox purgatory.
