Re: Fun W/21 Help!

My contributions on 1921 D Morgan VAMS as NEW/REVISED Late Die State are well documented on the VAM PAGE. Coincidental JOH numbers which relate to my New Discovery pieces are: 1BQ = JOH 9 Discovery VAM 1BQ2 and 1DG2 Discovery VAM = JOH 28

Here's my coin. It has the nose crack, but nothing approaching a DFB resulting from it, and the star L2 cracks don't look DFB-ish either:

Thanks Dennis for your photos. Die crack thru date without die chip on 2 is very similar to my specimen.

1921 P VAM 32A "Capped A" Die Break Progression back from Leroy

Wonder if anyone has seen this VAM in late die state without die chip on inside bottom of 2 ? My ANACS MS 64 VAM 32A displays obverse die crack from nose down between left stars 3 -4 with possible displaced field. Displaced field break also visible at left star 2 bottom and left. Reverse "Capped A" ...

Both of my VAM 58s have light beveling in the denticles above S _O like your does, but neither have a finger feed gouge in ST.
My two VAM 58s do not exhibit beveling above S or feed finger gouge at T.

1964 missing dot after T resulted from a "filled die" according to "A Charlton Standard Catalogue" of "Canadian Coins" Volume One Numismatic Issues 2012 66th Edition W. K. Cross page 327. A filled die where debris has clogged an incuse device is a random occurrence. The mintage of a specific clogged...

Re: 1921 3R3?

Congrats on that MS 64 ANACS 1921 VAM 3R3 grade. Check out my new LDS revision 3R3 just returned from LVA that is attributed with four additional displaced field breaks on obverse and reverse. Revision already in place on 1921 VAM Page with plate photos.

Re: 1889-P VAM-7B1 and VAM-7B2 June 2021 Revision

Great to see LVA in agreement on different clashed n die episodes with specific revisions to illustrate each progression. Die clash events are very difficult to interpret without all the pieces (as you know). Persistence is KEY. It took me twenty years to find that second monster error/variety Bicen...
