Re: Morgan 1885-O Broken S

The 's' is irrelevant. Start with the date and the mint mark. Chances are if you were to remove the polish residue around it, the 's' wouldn't look broken, as this is normally a very thin part of the letter.

Might be a silly question, but does your car have a USB charging port in it?

It does not; 2007 Accord.
These are cheaper than a new car

Re: 1921 P Morgan VAM 3A1B/3A1C

Confused by the paper trail on these. This thread indicates no tail feather gouge on 3A1c.

Re: A visit with Leroy

Very cool get-together! I like the old school T-Square on the wall in the background used for manual drafting. A testament to his early engineering days as a mechanical engineer. Good training for the minting process. He was a draftsman for a while in his early days. All of the illustrations in his...

Re: A visit with Leroy

Also, if you look closely at the picture with his book, you'll see a box for one of the 2021 Morgans. John R brought one to show him. He hated it.

Re: A visit with Leroy

What's not immediately apparent from the picture is that his VAM book is about twice as thick as normal due to extra pieces of paper and photos stuffed into it. The binding is an unrecognizable pile-up of layers of tape. Besides his numismatic projects, he has also kept busy designing and painting r...

Re: 1882-o 38-b value

If they'd garner any premium, it would be very minor. They are not particularly rare. I see lots of folks trying to squeeze big prices out of them... the key phrase here being "lots of folks". Still a REALLY cool VAM, though! And this is a perfect example of why no R-numbers will be assigned to new...

Re: Is this die polishing?

It's an overpolished die. Could be a brand new die that was just polished too much before being used.

Re: 1921 Peace dollar

First coin looks like an AU58 that also has a reasonably good strike (much hair detail visible, separation between wing and leg, leg feathers well-defined). The second coin is horribly struck, but is probably technically uncirculated. No better than 62 because of the strike, even though there aren't...

Re: 1921 D VAM 1AN Reinstatement ?

I thought VAM 1AN was already reinstated. I've seen both coins and was involved in their discoveries. I'm reinstating it now.

Re: 1880 VAM 56 exists

Looks like 56, 56A, and 56B are all still in the catalog as of December 2021. Alan, if you have pictures confirming the assertion that the 56A had the 56B break, I'll formally delist 56B.

Re: 1880 VAM 56 exists

Did Leroy actually eliminate VAM 56 or did someone just move it on VAMWorld? I'm away from home and can't check at the moment. Also, a comment on the VAM 56 page says they're from different reverses. Is this the case?
