Re: 1922 D Peace dollar which VAM

Thank you very much for your help ! How rare is it and how to value it ? Welcome Bibibam , I may have misled you with my "nice coin" comment. I don't mean it is not a nice coin, but rather I should have said, "Nice coin to me. As for "how rare it is", and the "Value", they have a link for that here...

Regardless of its size, the collar clash would be added to the existing listing as a note unless a specimen without one can be found.
Thank you, John

Would the http://ec2-13-58-222-16.us-east-2.compu ... llar_Clash page need update also?

Note unlisted collar clash below PEACE .

Looks like that collar clash could make 60 degrees of circumference required. Nice coin!

Re: I played with my 78’s on my first date:

Hey Bob, After reading and looking at the Zeiss link you provided. I was reminded of this method called Focus Stacking . This is when you take multiple images of a coin, variating just the focal point in each; stack/or layer all these images together and form just one image. I used it on my last pho...

Re: I played with my 78’s on my first date:

I am hoping this is the photo you mentioned above: Gcs78s around 8.JPG Here is another photo I just took. I think you can see the elevation of the anomaly much better. That P.M. scratch across both surfaces and on the surface of the '7' is a good pick-up for that raised elevation change. IMO gcs_187...

Re: I played with my 78’s on my first date:

Thanks, Bob. I've looked at that anomaly in the 'date at the first eight' for years now and I am still not sure what it is. I would like to poke that scab-looking crust piece, circled in this photo; just to see what the surface is like underneath. 1878-S_scab_anomaly.JPG The 'cracks' make it look li...

All I moved was the location of the light source (a single gooseneck lamp). Thank you. It sure makes a huge difference just moving that light source. May I ask how you go about doing the comparison with the 1921-D scribbles guide? I am trying this split-screen thing on this computer. On the left is...

Dennis;

In the first three photos of coin #1:

What was the thing(s) you changed to get three different perspectives?
Lighting, light direction, f-stop change, photoshop maybe? I see just enough 'hints' to know they are all the same coin.

thanks

Re: HIt List 40 Value Questions

Thanks colwillys I went searching for a chisel to do the 'deed' for my first time. I found this on the chisel. maybe a little OT, but my guess is this company had a lot in common with coin die-making. Has a hardened 'edge holding' layer of metal when you look at the chisel profile. The top layer is ...
