Re: Fall cleaning VAMs for sale

None of the NGC coins have the notation of discovery coin. They won's put the VAM designation on a Peace dollar if it is not in the Top 50, although I don't know about the Elite 30.

Re: Collecting on the Darkside. Getting back on the horse after many years away.

First of all, welcome back! I got my first grandchild earlier this year, so I have not been as active in VAMs or on this site as I would have liked. While I have often been the "Crusher of Dreams" in getting a listing killed, I have had the chore of occasionally getting my own discoveries eliminated...

Re: 1923 D VAM 1X1 or 1X2 - What's it worth?

I would agree with not paying a premium for this one in a circulated grade. Uncs are distinctly scarce however.

Re: 1923 S Collar Clash

There is a die state of 1CQ which has a collar clash in the area shown, but other die markers don't match. Nice pickup!

Re: 1922 Peace VAM Unknown, long obv die crack, double clash eagle's shoulder

I don't recognize this as a listed VAM. Leroy won't list a clashed die unless it is dramatic - double or triple clashed or extending into UNUM. Likewise, he won't list a coin for a die crack unless there is some displacement - look carefully for any deflection in the field especially in the left upp...

Re: Planchet problem or break; what do you think?

I will guess lamination also, I have seen similar feature on a few Peace dollars. If someone finds another, then you have a major find!

Re: 1926 P help, please.

It appears that the die & coin are worn, but it appears to be a VAM 2. What you see on the obverse is machine doubling.

Re: 1923-S VAM ???

Hi Tom, I think that you have a VAM 1AU, of which the old VAM 1J is the LDS. Unfortunately, the pages don't show the die cracks well other than the LLQ of the obverse, but your photos on the VAM 1AU page would be a big help. Even if not a new discovery, it is still a nice coin,. Keep on looking, the...

Re: peace dollar discovery coins

I just just today saw your post. I have the discovery coin of the 1923D VAM 1AZ on the VAMworld BST on a separate post.
I will be looking at some of my others which I would be willing to sell.
