My 1921 vam 19A

I had bid and won this 1921 AACGSMS60 awhile back, because of the holder, because the seller had blurry photos. It got interesting, when I received it and I saw the retained cud,,on the reverse and I started trying to attribute it. With the help, of you on Vamworld, you had said it was an R-7 vam 19...

Re: A little bit of coin grading history!

Thanks Wayne, I was hoping you was okay, with me posting pictures of it. I've been mowing my yard, with my smaller self propelled push mower and I think, I'm getting old, because I'm beat and I still have more to mow tomorrow. I'm still looking, to see if I have one of the slabs, with the photo of t...

Re: My 1921 Peace dollar VAM 3

Thank you Lee, John and Roger.
I had meant to say, a photo of the ray over the B,
which the top of the B and the ray looked doubled
to me.
Is the the ray doubled?
Here is better photo of the top of the B.
Thanks, Bert

Re: A little bit of coin grading history!

I had sent this GLOBAL grading slab photo, for you to see Wayne.
It doesn't show the coin photo, but has a photo of the Philadelphia mint and
some interesting information, on the reverse of the slab, that was the reason
they started minting the 1878 Morgan silver dollar.

My 1921 Peace dollar VAM 3

I was lucky enough to have seen and recognized the line running through the first L, in DOLLAR, on my 1921 PCGSMS64, one late night online, awhile back. I think I had posted it before, but it always catches my eye, as I am looking through some of my coins and brings back, the excitement, that I felt...

Re: My 1880 CC toned GSA VAM 6

Thank you Mike and Clayton, I kept looking at my picture of the die scratch inside of eagle's left wing and the picture on the vam 6 page. My picture above, shows only one die scratch and the vam 6 page picture showed a number of them. I took some more pictures at different angles and saw, that I wa...

My 1880 CC toned GSA VAM 6

I had bought this Toned GSA 1880 CC NGCMS65 long before I started learning,
about vams because I liked the unque tone pattern and the GSA slab, then I
had help attributing it as a vam 6.
In other words, I got real lucky.
Here are some pictures, see if you agree, with the vam 6.
Thanks, Bert

Re: Dark Side Dot

I remember finding a 1926 S, with a dot on the leaves, awhile back Ray.
I'll try and find it and see if I can help.

My other 1880 CC and a vam 4

Here is my other 1880 CC, that is a vam 4, it is only an NGCMS61, but I was still pretty excited, when I saw the 9, inside the 0 and of course the 7 inside the 8, that I won awhile back. I especially like the way the 9 looks, inside the 0. I also noticed maybe, a rim cud forming, under the date, in ...

Thank you Tom, Bobby, Kurt, Roger and Chris (..Even if it ends up only being a PL by today's tight standards, she's still in a DPL holder!) Please don't grade this 1880 CC, by my inexperience in taking pictures. I don't have a good camera or stand or the good lighting. I took the obv and rev picture...

My 1880 CC NGCMS63DPL TOP 100 vam 5

I was lucky enough, to have recognized the 8 re-punched over 7, awhile back, on this 1880 cc NGCMS63DPL and won it. In addition to DPL, it is in an old thick NGC slab and has some nice toning. Here are some pictures of the date, below the eagle's right claw and two more pictures of the rev. Enjoy, B...

Re: I need help, with my 1924 Peace dollar

Thank you Dr Close, It seems, that my inexperience has confused things. I thought, that the V shaped clash, on .the top/back, of the eagle was the E clash. I see now, it is the top of the throat and back of the jaw, on the obv, that makes that V shaped clash. I am not sure, where the obv clashed T i...

Thank you Tom, I had looked at that vam 1AC, but I didn't see anything, in the description, about maybe a a faint clashed E, on the eagle's top/back, through the ray , or the curved clash, at the bottom tip, of the wing or the die crack running through the eagle's head., the clash running out of the...
