Re: OT; CC gold book

I got a quick reply to my email. He said that the book is rare and out of print.

I do not have the coin in hand. The angle of the lighting in the photo may have gotten me. I do suffer from dyslexia occasionally.

numismatically, does that mean you see things raised that are lowered and visa versa? should make coins quite interested! :mrgreen:

if you don't get an exact answer of what you are looking for, Doug Winters should have something very in-depth for any gold series. also, if you don't get a great answer here, ask on ngc or pcgs forum. you'd surely get some wonderful and effective responses. i saw some books recently that winters co...

Re: 1885-S VAM-6 Denticle Impressions?

Thanks to all for the replies. I appreciate putting this to bed so quickly. To JB's point, apparently multiple appearances of the same coin is what got me. Must be occluded gas bubbles in the planchet. But regardless, your replies kept me from an even wilder goose chase. do you have that coin in-ha...

fwiw i checked several 85-s v6 auction appearances in unc with nothing. it would make sense the coin in the OP is just contact considering how much contact that are of that coin has. nothing wrong with keeping your eyes peeled for another example but unlikely and to look at the coin in-hand would wr...

Like I said, can't put my finger on it. But just because I'm suspicious doesn't mean it's bad. I'm supposed to react to the extraordinary with skepticism.

Re: 1924 P collar clash/cud questions

i have seen these on a few different type coins, recently including an 09 vdb with the vdb 95% gone with lines like these all over that area. i've always presumed they were a result of some minting process.

Re: AU58 Paper Test

a great tip!

one cannot have enough skills in their arsenal to weed out 58s when looking for uncs and stuff like this can help us manage our expectations when submitting. i'm sure a few will slide through but en-masse, the guy that has submitted oodles has shared a pearl and i am quite grateful. :)

Re: Strange question on the 1900-O/CC vams

if you go to each vam page, there are names for each obverse and reverse die.

you can scrutinize and comments/links from the o/cc pages as if there is going to be some info, those are good places to start.

do you have any vam books? SURELY there is commentary somewhere.

Re: Found a neat way to measure relief with a ping test and spectrograph

i like the idea but i gotta believe that HOW one pings, will vastly affect the outcome. thickness of surface, type of surface etc.

i'll have to look into this a bit more for silver and gold.

neat coin and thanks for sharing. good call on the mishandling. i don't see any signs of PLS from those images but i did presume it had been cleaned w/o blowing up the images, which i did after reading the commentary as a LOT of proof coins from this era have PLS usually not extreme and usually stra...
