Re: marilyn van allen

The service before the service was quite a privilege. Leroy and marilyn’s son john provided lots of pictures, and other “memorabilia.”leroy was really positive and cheerful, despite the loss. He was so happy that they had found each other and was sure that they extended each other’s life because of ...

Re: 1900 O/CC VAM 11A Question

i have seen many, many "vam 11a's". i don't think it is an r6. it is so easily identifiable by the length and strength of the break. it is also the stage that the counterfeiters copied when they made the reverse for a number of "privately made' dollars.

is this item struck into the die, or is it something that was struck onto, and retained on the coin?

Re: New Member with a Possible New VAM - 1922-P Peace Dollar - Extra Olive Branch?

this is a very common occurence on 1922-1924. this is actually the sunken area outlining the cap. you will find loads of them with little looking. when the dies clash without a planchet/blank in the chamber, this is the result. welcome to the madness.
