Re: Help with doubling... 1883-S

Perhaps I should have been more clear... I apologize! This is a VAM-2 (C3b rev. - S tilted right) but has this doubling on it. The listing for the VAM-2 has no mention of any doubling at all and describes a normal obverse with no date doubling. I realize that most of the doubling on the reverse is m...

Re: Help with doubling... 1883-S

Hi Mediocrates007,

Thanks for that! It's missing the die chips from IGWT on the reverse.

Re: Help with doubling... 1883-S

These are on the obverse... the cotton bolls perhaps a fatigued die???

I also attached the date... many of the 83-S'es have similar date doubling.


Thanks a million!!

Help with doubling... 1883-S

Hi everybody. I posted on the sticky doubled die thread a few days ago but I don't think anybody looks at it much anymore. I have an 83-S with a ton of machine doubling on the reverse. There is some doubling that I'm uncertain of and would love to hear anybodys opinion. It'd be much appreciated. I'm...

Re: Do you think you have a Doubled Die?

There is also a tad of doubling on the obverse that seem to me not to be machine doubling. What is your opinion on these? FYI... there are no listed examples of Doubled die varieties for this year and mark beyond the date. Attached also is the date on this one just for reference. Thanks in advance f...

Re: Do you think you have a Doubled Die?

Hi Everybody!

A teaching moment maybe.

I have an '83-S with significant machine doubling on the reverse... especially the North of the coin. The images on this post are of some of this.

MPD and pitting advice.

Hi All!

I'd really appreciate opinions and advisement on a couple things. The first... is this the top of a digit 1 in the denticles? The second... is this rust pitting or acid treatment in the wing-body gap?

Thanks in advance. :)

Sincerely,

1926-P Peace VNA?

HI all! This peace dollar has doubling on the G & O as well as the tips of some olive leaves. There is a small die crack on the neck. There's nothing else of significance and none of this matches any of the listed varieties. Is this of no consequence and falls under VAM-1 or is it something Dr. Clos...

Re: Stumped on an 82-S (Dbl. cap & wing)

Thank you sooooo much for that!! I readily went to it this AM armed with your advisement and fresh eyes... VAM 22, Rev. die 1 I suspected the mintmark to be machine doubled as well as one axis of the two reverse stars. The one completely fooled me. I suspected S/S mark because of the line in the low...
