Re: legitamate question about VW 1880-O Vam 2 page

@Geseas Ive been thinking about your pictures . looks like one of them had a lot more to eat than the other :lol: . That's the best way I can explain it , I'm not sure why , or how that could be the case . what is the source of the thorn ? the hub or the die?

Re: legitamate question about VW 1880-O Vam 2 page

That is interesting . I'm pretty sure the Hamilton die shares the obverse of both 2B1 and 2B2 , that are pictured in the VW pages ,,,i only say that from staring at it for two days . Might explain why I thought what I was thinking . And I got to be honest I"m not sure what the reverse is for sure . ...

Re: legitamate question about VW 1880-O Vam 2 page

Man that would be awesome , the original listing messed me up . it still doesn't make any sense. i did not look at your Hill coin very close but am curious if it is the same die pair as the Hamilton or if it is different ? iIcould spot that Hamilton die pair in my sleep . I wished it was a little mo...

Hi Rog , I'm sorry , your frustration is understandable , based solely on the little bit I know of your work . You seem like an honorable man to me .That still means something where I come from . I tried to explain what I thought about the currant listing of the Hamilton coin as simple as I could . ...

Re: legitamate question about VW 1880-O Vam 2 page

K I have a second to post some thoughts and see if the spaghetti will stick to the wall , because I don't have enough information to make any kind of statements I can only guess. If I am reading the Vam Pages correctly . VAM 2 should be {in my mind} using the original description, the unclashed vers...

Re: legitamate question about VW 1880-O Vam 2 page

HI G , not sure if I'm qualified to make that call . I will have to look at your coin tonight, when not tied up . Duty calls ... quick question , what are the reverses you put on the last page . like what vam numbers? . Right one looks like the Hamilton coin , What is the other one?

Re: legitamate question about VW 1880-O Vam 2 page

Geseas Well I could not find a picture in the big book for the original V2, just the same description of the reverse stating , "Reverse C3b- Normal die of C3 type with medium, tall, oval shaped, II O mint mark centered and upright." and you're right buddy , compassion , I will let it go ..... thank...

Re: legitamate question about VW 1880-O Vam 2 page

Were all good , The only fault I am calling out is my own . I would have picked up coin was VAM 2 if there was even a note on the page suggesting that the MM is not what one might think center is ( mainly for the newcomer} , I'm only sharing this experience for the next guy . I keep trying to make s...

Re: legitamate question about VW 1880-O Vam 2 page

Thank you for the reply I'm not arguing at all . The description on the VW page and my own misinterpretation was what led to the confusion . i never looked at the pictures for v2 cause I just didn't understand what variables can exist in the words Centered and upright , I hope that makes sense.

Re: legitamate question about VW 1880-O Vam 2 page

Thank you very much for the reply , this coin hung me up because I was using the attribution guides with the coin in hand . I'll bet I read the description at least a dozen times about MM centered and upright and just dismissed it . I am so new to this I question everything in trying to attribute my...
