Great information Tom! Thank you.
I will pull out my D1s and start counting how many have lines+dot.

Re: Fun W/21 Help!

"some dated political element"? Seriously? Why does everything these days have to have a conspiracy angle? Why does everything have to be due to a sinister political agenda? "Fun with '21" is 18 years old. Maybe the updated information has simply fallen through the cracks during the passage of time ...

Re: Have I met my match? (1921-P D1)

Thanks Tom. I agree that my VSS 88A is actually a 1BQ. I was making a public teasing of J.B. in the hope he would see it. :lol: But it looks like my unknown coin in this thread is going to wind up filling that 88A hole I now have in my SSDC date set. :D What do you think of this idea: The more I loo...

Hey Dennis, The picture you posted of your "88A" sure looks a lot like this photo posted on the page for the "1BQ": http://ec2-13-58-222-16.us-east-2.compute.amazonaws.com/w/images/4/4b/1921-P_VAM-1BQ_Scribbles_2.jpg No wonder I said I could swear I've seen those scribbles before, I posted the sill...

Wait - the reverse scribbles on your "88A" doesn't match those on my (ANACS attributed) 88A, which does have the leg gouges.

Excellent! (Insofar as we already had a mess, but now we have a mess that can be submitted to LVA. "Cleanup on Aisle 88 please!") :lol:

Re: Have I met my match? (1921-P D1)

Now I'm going to throw a huge monkey wrench into this discussion. Here is a photo of the scribbles on my VSS-attributed VAM 88A, which is obviously the same coin Mitch used to take the 6 small photos that appear at the bottom of the VAM 88A attribution page: 1838438-109 scribbles.jpg If you compare ...

Re: Have I met my match? (1921-P D1)

Huh. This implies that the obverse denticle wear happened before the reverse leg polishing lines; you perhaps more properly have a VAM 88 LDS there, and not really the die stage LVA called VAM 88A. One of the "joys" of dealing with 1921-P attributions is not knowing what the complete sequence is of...

Re: Have I met my match? (1921-P D1)

Tom: There's just nothing on my coin that matches up with 88A, except for the single spike coming out of the left leg. By the way... in looking at LVA's two plate images on the VAM 88A attribution page (I so wish there were more!) I found something very odd about my VSS-attributed 88A. It has obvers...

Re: PCGS XF-40 1889 O Vam 1A1 Value

There's no way of knowing which 1A version these were, since PCGS only puts 1A on the holder. 1889-O 1A 45 PCGS Jul-21 E $225 1889-O 1A 45 PCGS Mar-15 E $211 1889-O 1A 45 PCGS Dec-19 E $197 1889-O 1A 45 PCGS Dec-13 H $188 1889-O 1A 40 PCGS Apr-13 H $306 1889-O 1A 40 PCGS Jan-16 GC $138 1889-O 1A 40 ...

Re: Have I met my match? (1921-P D1)

Hey Tom, thanks for taking a look!
I have a VSS 88A, but I can find none of the 'stuff' on it that is shown in my photos here.

The worst case scenario here isn't so bad... I'll be able to fill my empty VAM 1 slot at SSDC. :lol:

I am posting this through my Android phone, because as of this morning Firefox doesn't want to log me on VAMworld, despite having done it for many years. I get the web address in my tab header, but the page that comes up is 100% blank... even after every reload and restart. Is anyone else having thi...

Have I met my match? (1921-P D1)

Out of about 200 1921-P Morgans with D1 reverses that I've tried to attribute over the years, I've never failed (often thanks to the help of folks here!) to arrive at a VAM diagnosis -- other than coins that turned out to be new discoveries. I don't even have a VAM 1 in my 1921-P date set, because I...

Anyone noticing that the 2021 cc privy's are cracking $500 each on Ebay? It's crazy.

I've also noticed that. It's becoming somewhat regular too. :o
