Re: 1880-O attribution help- EARRIE situation

Yes. It is the Vam 48 and it does have the curved line to verify it. Still not a bad coin in MS-63 with some very nice toning. :D :D

1880-O attribution help- EARRIE situation

I know I have at least a Vam 48 here and a nicely coined toned in a high grade. I'm curious if you see a possible Vam 49 "EAR" here. IT might be I'm seeing Ear ghosts here. What do you think?

Coin World February - Silver Dollars are Fun

I received my monthly Coin World today. I was pleasantly surprised that the featured article is all about Silver Dollars. It is general information on all the different series, and worth picking up. :ugeek:

You rock!!

8 out of 88 puts you in the top 10 percentile for graders. That is pretty darn good in my book. I bet you graded harder than the NGC coin appraisers mean grade average. They tend to grade a little easier than the PCGS and ANACS comparable graders in my opinion.

1921 Tail feather gouge toner Vam 3-A-1-b

I always like this variety with the feather gouge, but when you get one with this cool toning on top, I needed this one. :roll:

Re: Please Check you 1878 P VAM 14.8 coins

My 14.8 63PL has the gouge line thru the O. Its probably an ultra early strike too, so they all should have it.

Re: White Paper Test

Neat trick. I just tried it on my AU coin, and as per Professor Baumgart's theory, a gray shadow appears near the tip of the
bust point at the neck. I like it !! Actually, I suppose I should have hoped that it didn't show, then it would have been MS.

I'm not familiar with the "white paper test". Please explain how one does it, and what you are looking for. Thanks.

My first pick of the new year

I found this one- a very high grade for a 1901 (probably AU-55 to maybe AU-58). I noticed it was a Vam 5 too . This is probably the highest grade for a raw 1901 which I've seen in doing this over 10 years. Coin looks like it was dipped but I think she will grade. Tell me what you think. JDL_1901_P_V...

Re: 8 TF confirmation- new pick 14.6?

I'm hoping for an MS-63 grade which will be determined when I send it in thru JB. The coin has a PL obverse, but not the reverse. I'm excited.
