Re: Another Darksider - 1922 P VAM 5?

Bumping so it does not get lost.

@colwillys , no gouge in G, not sure that the E shows wear lines. Is this a 5.1?

Thanks

Re: Another Darksider - 1922 P VAM 5?

Blowing it up a little more, I can see some die wear around the E, as well as a small dot at the top, left.

Another Darksider - 1922 P VAM 5?

Have a nice, white 1922 P that I would grade at MS 62, but I can't grade Peace Dollars to save my life...' The coin has the attributes of the VAM 5, but not sure if it is 5.1 or 5.2 and I am looking for some help, please. The doubling of the left leg feathers and the rays under the wing is there. 20...

Re: So... I discovered the missing bottom half to the 1887-P "Partial E"... No BS...

I think it might be a phantom. I don't see any other attributes of a clash on the obverse or reverse. Could be the pictures and lighting is hiding it, but I just don't see a clash. See if you can find other evidence of a clash. In order for a letter transfer to occur, the clash has to have been sign...

Re: Darkside Help, Please. Clashed 1923-S

It's going on a trip to Sidney. It will, unfortunately, be travelling alone. I purchased it about 5 or 6 years ago when I was killing time at a shopping center and went into a B&M I had never been to before. I think I paid $22 for it. I picked it up because I saw something on the coin that looked pr...

You can see the metal curled up around the edge whatever that is. It is clearly not part of the planchet. Either PMD or struck through debris that became lodged.

Re: Darkside Help, Please. Clashed 1923-S

Hair curl clashes don't match 1 BM. Mintmark seems different. Obverse is different as well. Clash at the top of the hair doesn't match. The clash at the jaw/neck on 1BM is right at the juncture of the neck and jaw. On my coin, it is further out on the jaw. I am pretty sure that it is not 1BM.

Re: Need help with 21 D

I could not match the scribbles at all. The small dot looked familiar, but I could not find it, either.

Re: Darkside Help, Please.

Reverse has been heavily polished as well. Certain elements are gone as a result. Left shoulder of eagle has been heavily polished. Lots of file lines through the rays into the motto. 20181026_105255.jpg 20181026_105324.jpg Shoulder spikes have been filed away along with the tip of the ray that shou...

Re: Darkside Help, Please.

Here's the doubling on the BERT. Looks like machine doubling, but I'm rusty on this.

Darkside Help, Please. Clashed 1923-S (Updated with LVA Letter and Plate Photos)

Some interesting stuff on a 23-S that I can't match up to anything existing. Coin was clashed and heavily polished. There are significant file lines in the space between the bun and the head, all around the bun and into the Y, and on the reverse around the eagle's head and shoulders and into the mot...
