Re: 1884 0 / cc

that vam 6 look much more like a o/cc than the vam 10. when vamsterdam posted it i looked at the o/o on that page and wow. i know it isn't one but if that inner part of the mm wore down, shoo wee. picked a v10 this week. not a big deal but i was happy to find an unc even if the bullion is making pur...

Re: Key Date CC Cast Counterfeits

a good coin to post. it is above average for what i'm used to seeing.

they mess up the reverses and use obv of 21 with earlier dates.

i'd give this a 4.5-5 out of 10 for the public being able to detect it.

almost thought it may have just been whizzed a bit.

Re: 1881-S VAM-1B vs VAM-67

v67 page

Re: 1881-S VAM-1B vs VAM-67

I see on the pages that there is a question about the two subject VAMs possibly sharing the same reverse die. Looks like JR has seen VAM-67 coins both with (LDS) and without the chip in eagle's wing. fwiw, a quick mm comparison shows they cannot be the same reverse die (not even possible). so long ...

Yes I am positive their are file marks or sanding marks in the gouge . Looks like they were trying to remove the gouge .

Re: Morgan 1921-S VAM-1BF

I tried to make this thing into a 21-P D2 reverse Kissov, if it helps. 21-s morgans can be identified as such by the overall look of the obv alone and a glance at the reverse usually confirms (even without a mintmark.) i say this to encourage you in the future that you can tell a 21-s the vast majo...

Re: i have seen some odd things on morgans but this is near the top - 89p 38a

hmm. i just can't get there that the head and beak are clashed that far apart. i'll need an overlay or another explanation. thanks for the responses and efforts so far.

thanks for the responses and help. i'm not sure i can quite understand what the jawline "clash" is. i have some speculations but that is all they are. i'll provide what i see and perhaps you can help me across the bridge. tia edited to add, a bigger version can be opened in a new tab or d/l. not sur...

the page says something about clashed eagle's head. does that refer to this unusual "clashing"?

Re: 1923 Unlisted Die Break?

Is this an unlisted die break or not a listable feature? It is not listed as a die break variety. Could this break be a diagnostic in another '23 VAM that I am just not finding? came across this and thought of your coin. don't see them often listed with neck break and nothing else but it does happe...

while all peace dollars are vams, i can say to a 99% certainty, there are no known listed peace vams with a feature(s) like that. lines are just too straight and clean. something like that, if it were a coin attribute would be more along the lines of an error, not a vam. the lettering is 2 different...
