Re: O/O 1902-O help....

Need a little more help Brent. C4 or C4/C3 reverse? Any die cracks? I seem to recall this m/m. I think I tried to get Leroy to list it but he declined.

Re: Last Morgan Die Pair of 1904?

No die incest was identified in Philly in 1904, meaning no, no common dies between VAM-8 and VAM-11. The proof coin mintage for the months you show is interesting. Have not seen that before. While your observation about the VAM-11 being minted in June makes sense based on your logic. I am thinking t...

Last Morgan Die Pair of 1904?

If I have done this topic before, my apologies. It is well accepted that the first Morgan die pair minted in 1878 is the VAM-9. It is a widely collected coin coveted by collectors. But what is the last Morgan dollar die pair minted in 1904 prior to the 1921 run? A little sleuthing provides a clue at...

I think Kurt got the V21 Die#1 correct. Just a LDS from what I can tell.

Re: When striking pressure is too high

This sink hole theory is just that, a theory. I could expand on my thoughts about that, but then I would be the one looking for 15 minutes of fame. Let's just say I don't buy that one. I have reviewed the engineering report from 3 years ago. Nothing in that report indicates the impending doom that o...

Re: When striking pressure is too high

I also got to run experiments in college in the engineering lab busting concrete cylinders. As far as the Surfside condo collapse, I would suggest that you not listen to the so-called experts, who just want TV time. It will take years to figure out what happened. I say this as a structural engineer ...

Re: 1887-S V2 to 2A transition point?

This is just from my observations only. If others have different observations, bring them on! The die pair started in the VAM-2 pair, with no crapolla in the denticles, i.e. clean dies. The dies were then polished and remarried. From what I can tell, the crapolla in the denticles happened then. The ...

Re: 1887-S V2 to 2A transition point?

You have a LDS as you surmise. There is a polishing job (both dies and remarried) and die wear involved. As you know, the EDS coins are much more dramatic than the LDS coins. They are not hard to find, so if you want an EDS, keep looking. I bought one not that long ago off of HA as I recall.

Got my example today. Very, very nice. Apparently not for all tastes, but I like it a lot! Now I am trying to figure out what VAM it was overstruck on :lol:

Closest I can get is VAM-19 with the photos posted. Can you get a close-up of the first U in Pluribus?

Re: 1922-P Peace Dollar---Wing Die Break and numerous die chips/gouges?

I'm in the PMD camp for both the topic questions. While photo lighting can play tricks, it looks to me like this "investment" coin went thru a fire. Maybe what you see as raised dots are planchet bubbles that expanded in the heat of the fire. As far as the break you are looking at, it looks to me to...

In the spirit of the new 21-P list, I just purchased a PCGS MS64 example of the VAM-3i, Meteor Shower. Thanks Dennis for what you do.

Re: The 1921-s “AMAZING SEQUENCES” of Die gouges has a new chapter ( Kills & Discovers) with 1921-S Vam 15’s

So Pete, is the DC for the V15E still a V15E?, or did it die somewhere along the line, for the 2nd time?

Maybe someone that aided and abetted this sequence can answer?

Re: Oh those 1887-S denticle gouges... can't get enough?

As things stand right now, I agree with JR that you have a member of the VAM-8 family. The obverse die of your coin was married to two different reverses. The first use (marriage) of the obverse die did not have the gouges. They showed up on the second reverse die marriage or in between marriages. H...
