Re: 1878 S VAM 28

My apologies on the S....

I was looking at the PLUIBUS after the suggestion of VAM 28. It looks like there may be some quadrupling of the U, break in B and possibly quadrupled R?

Scratch by cotton leaves and forehead are both there as well as die chip in E.

Gotta be a 28.

1897 S VAM 10 or ?

I recently got this 1897 S and I'm pretty sure it's a Vam 10 (S slightly tilted right) but I think I see more to it but I am looking for opinions. There are no full coin pictures in the vam 10 listing.

Liberty looks doubled and polish lines in ear.

Re: Over polishing?

Damage after the mint? There is alot of flattening and gouging on the obverse but the reverse looks great.

Is the ear doubled?

Is there a slight doubling of the ear to the right? I thought it was when i purchased it If so is this a VAM 4? I went out on a limb when i was looking at it.

Re: 1899 O VAM 30 with clashing?

Didn't look so hard at the full coin photos but I do see them now. The die cracks are in the same places but not as pronounced as the close up photos. Clashing coins are becoming my priority...i agree to mear and poatoes all the nuances and overall appearances are just addicting.

1899 O VAM 30 with clashing?

When looking at the 1899 O the coin matches up with the VAM 30 minus this coin has alot of clashing, is it a 30 or am I overlooking another?

Re: 1887 O VAM 4 Question

I saw that clash, it was the shorter kind of twisty one out of the same wing but closer to the beak that I was confused as what the clash could be. I appreciate the link and the feedback.

1887 O VAM 4 Question

I've identified this coin as a VAM 4 which talks about clashing but no letter transfer. I am not familiar with this particular clashing above the eagle wing and was wondering what the clashing is? I also added some additional photos of the coin.

Re: Fiji RP Morgan and Peace

I had to get up early for kids softball tourney and the commercial was on history channel...mezack (however it's spelled) said 5000 made from Fiji mint, don't know how many he got since it was almost over. $400 pair CSN, $300 EA HSN are the only places I found them for sale.
