Re: 1921-P help needed

Mitch:
That's it! Thanks!
But I can't believe it isn't in the die crack guide. And the scribbles guide obviously needs this updated LDS photo.

Re: 1921-P help needed

There are also a few very old cracks on the coin:

There are a couple of strong gouges in the lower part of the Y in Liberty's headband, and a lot of polishing lines between the cotton bolls:

1921-P help needed

This is a D1 reverse. There are no scribbles, but there is a heavy horizontal gouge at the bottom of the right opening, and a long, snake-shaped gouge on the eagle's abdomen: raw1921 scribbles.jpg By far the most distinction feature on the coin (if this isn't a new discovery I can't believe it doesn...

Hey Dennis, that wouldn't happen to be the VAM-7 you got from me a couple years ago, was it? If so, that's awesome cuz I sold that one because I found an AU53!! :lol: LOL! No, that was an unattrbuted 'pick at Great Collections in March. None of the coins submitted had a CAC sticker, but the Long No...

Think you already know and are just hoping you're wrong. That second U in UNUM tells the story ... damage. All of the scratches around the area are from that same grinding hit.

The stuff on the reverse looks like die scratches though.
I agree with J.R.

Re: Big Problem with this 1878 P B1 Reverse with a CUD

I've never seen anything close to a dead-straight cud on a Morgan, so this rates WAY up there on the interesting scale! I'm eager to hear what LVA has to say about this one.

Good job Lee!
For some reason VAM 1i (eye) is not in the crack guide. Can someone who knows how please fix that?

Re: 1921-P D1 reverse help

The lines in the top arrowhead are part of the D1 reverse die; it's on ALL D1 coins. The rim thing looks like a planchet lamination, as does the one by the star. The gouge through TY is spectacular!! I've never seen anything of that magnitude, and it is why, if it were my coin, I would send it to LV...

Re: 3 discoveries, 4 revisions, 1 kill

Jimmy:

LVA's revision of 1B2 doesn't say anything about pitting, so my assumption is:

1B1 has the right scribbles, but no polishing
1B2 has the polishing
1B3 has the polishing and pitting

...and all from just 9 coins, including the reference specimens I sent for comparison. One of the revisions confuses me (I'm easy that way) because it looks like a new listing. I hope he doesn't bar me from making future submissions. :lol: Killed: 1921-P VAM 3AH. I sent him a coin that has the same ...
