Re: 2021 Peace Dollars

Well, I got nuthin'. Spent 20 minutes online and had them in the cart but couldn't check out. After 20 minutes I threw my hands up and said F'it and walked away. Not the end of the world, at least that is what I keep telling myself :oops: Update 1: Well, after my initial post above, my wife tells me...

The so called "crack" thru the C looks more like a planchet flaw to me.

Re: 1887-S V2 to 2A transition point?

Yup, if your coin has denticle crapolla on both obv and rev, then it would be a 2A, regardless how strong/weak it may be. There is no die stage where the denticle crapolla was polished off to revert both dies to a 2.

Re: 1887-S V2 to 2A transition point?

Sorry if there is any confusion that I may have created. The progression is:

VAM-2: No denticle crapolla, fresh dies.
VAM-2A: Denticle crapolla occurs, wears down with die use.
VAM-15: Obverse die inherited from the VAM-2A, minor denticle crapolla.

Need a little more help Brent. C4 or C4/C3 reverse? Any die cracks? I seem to recall this m/m. I think I tried to get Leroy to list it but he declined.

Re: Last Morgan Die Pair of 1904?

No die incest was identified in Philly in 1904, meaning no, no common dies between VAM-8 and VAM-11. The proof coin mintage for the months you show is interesting. Have not seen that before. While your observation about the VAM-11 being minted in June makes sense based on your logic. I am thinking t...

Last Morgan Die Pair of 1904?

If I have done this topic before, my apologies. It is well accepted that the first Morgan die pair minted in 1878 is the VAM-9. It is a widely collected coin coveted by collectors. But what is the last Morgan dollar die pair minted in 1904 prior to the 1921 run? A little sleuthing provides a clue at...

I think Kurt got the V21 Die#1 correct. Just a LDS from what I can tell.

Re: When striking pressure is too high

This sink hole theory is just that, a theory. I could expand on my thoughts about that, but then I would be the one looking for 15 minutes of fame. Let's just say I don't buy that one. I have reviewed the engineering report from 3 years ago. Nothing in that report indicates the impending doom that o...

Re: When striking pressure is too high

I also got to run experiments in college in the engineering lab busting concrete cylinders. As far as the Surfside condo collapse, I would suggest that you not listen to the so-called experts, who just want TV time. It will take years to figure out what happened. I say this as a structural engineer ...

Re: 1887-S V2 to 2A transition point?

This is just from my observations only. If others have different observations, bring them on! The die pair started in the VAM-2 pair, with no crapolla in the denticles, i.e. clean dies. The dies were then polished and remarried. From what I can tell, the crapolla in the denticles happened then. The ...

Re: 1887-S V2 to 2A transition point?

You have a LDS as you surmise. There is a polishing job (both dies and remarried) and die wear involved. As you know, the EDS coins are much more dramatic than the LDS coins. They are not hard to find, so if you want an EDS, keep looking. I bought one not that long ago off of HA as I recall.
