Re: 75 S Trade Dollar Coin 2

The full listings are at http://registry.ssdcvams.com/Trade/ which I generally update as I update them in my full original document. I do have thousands of images and details, beyond what is in the listings. So I can look for more thingsif we identify candidate dies.

Re: 75 S Trade Dollar Coin 1

I believe this is C-25. We have C-25.1 catalogued with the break and it was expected that there was earlier production without the break. I had a bid on one such coin in an online auction that I was sure was such a piece. But I did not win it and thus could not get it in my had for inspection. I wil...

Re: 75 S Trade Dollar Coin 2

Appears to be unlisted, both dies, though one would not have the expected the reverse to have survived to be multiply paired. The date is very high and set right. There are a couple that are close but not close enough from my recollection. As for the reverse die, the right tilt for the mint mark, es...

Re: SSDC now more usable !

How can I find a specific date and mint mark on the VAM value guide? It is all there, but has not been opened up yet. Values need to be confirmed. The Peace dollars as well. Will this be like the Vamview price guide? Yes and no. As it presents currently, the coverage is essentially over the "list" ...

Re: SSDC now more usable !

Finally got cascading menus working. At the Registry, you will now see it as the way to find a census. The original complete menu list is still available as a form below this improved one. The only peculiarity, which might not be fixable is that the dates are ordered by the Philadelphia ones first, ...

Re: Calling ALL VAMMers - Rotated dies

I did not put in the CW or CCW designation as we all know that would just get confusing. Full slab images would be great for the rotated coins, especially inside the set designed just for them. For Morgans, I wrote an article almost a decade ago on how to precisely compute the relative die rotation ...

Re: OT - Trade Challenge

Thought I might note that the Trade listings are maintained on the SSDC Registry server. I convert them from Word to PDF and then to HTML, updating as additions or changes occur. The formatting from the original document is lost here and there but the content is all the same. Will spruce it up in ti...

I did put CSNS right after than and a small Cowtown one, since I heard one of our VAM folks might be there.

Maybe OT - Coin Shows

I had stopped doing this after the February 2020 Long Beach show due to the pandemic shutting things down. But since the shows are pretty much back to regular programming, I would like to see us maintain a reasonably robust listing of upcoming coin shows. I do this on the SSDC Registry, so it is not...

Re: OT - Trade Challenge

I think a more comprehensive book is a great goal. My work perhaps could be seen more as one foundation to draw from for it rather than be it. CONECA catalogues a lot of things that aren't going to move a market like the Cherrypicker's Guide will. But the more complete listing is a valuable referenc...

Re: 1874 Trade Dollar

I am pretty certain the obverse is the I16, used on C-5 and C-11. However, both of those were paired with different reverses that do not have a dot after FINE. Yours clearly does. The C-11 was presented me at the February Long Beach show by a collector from Flagstaff who is not Brent (fogie). I was ...
