Re: 78-S VAM-28 with doubled LIBERTY?

Yeah, VAM 28. Take a look at the VAM 8 page. That doubling is plated by Van Allen

If you ever decide you want to part with that PL VAM 20 in the GSA holder, just let me know

Re: 1880-O VAM-22 eliminated

Think this needs another look. By mintmark alone, VAM 18 and 22 can't be the same

Re: Need Help with 1921, broken E Obv

The color change around this further supports some sort of struck thru debris error. Can't explain the flow lining, but this might be natural on a filled die that's already well worn. Wouldn't mind seeing additional examples

Re: Need Help with 1921, broken E Obv

I'd guess it's a strike thru, but could be an unfortunately placed hit. Not buying this as an actual die thing

Re: NEW R-7 Retained Cud 1921 $ with photos

I did just call this a VLDS and didn't split the listing. I don't recall my exact wording, but I think this is one I'd want to see with and without all the crack/break pattern to generate a distinct VAM stage listing

But that doesn't subtract from the present example being cool to look at

Re: Heritage VAM and PL Morgan sale Monday, 9/19

Bid on four coins & got stomped hard on three of them. The one I did win isn't earth-shattering, but it does move one of my sets closer to completion.

Re: Help with 1882 O MM

Sorry, that is a VAM 22. Your picture of the end on the stem doesn't really capture the split, but I kinda see it. I apologize for the extra day of trying to figure this out

Re: Help with 1882 O MM

Is the end of the branch above the first L of DOLLAR split? It's pretty much a 'one and done' diagnostic for the DDR associated with VAM 22

Re: OT - Feed Finger Gouges Or ?

I read the article here https://www.error-ref.com/peripheral-die-damage/
Interesting, but I'm not convinced that explains the weirdness on your Walkers. It's somewhat similar, but not the same. I don't recall the pronounced peripheral element in the affected area

Re: ANACS re-holder back

The VAM 115 should not have downgraded from one yellow holder to another. That's worth an email to Paul and a review. The same senior grader was OK with this as a straight VG08 when it went thru before.
