Re: Questions about SSCD "Buffed Reverses" registry

Not a reply; however, the definition seems inconsistent: Buffed Reverse Highly over polished and eroded dies. (See -1883-O VAM-1C1) Polishing and erosion are different things. "Buffed" implies polishing or use of abrasive, and has nothing to do with erosion and displacement of die steel. The on-lin...

1894-S VAM-1A. Should have been on a list a long time ago.

Re: 1891-S VAM-3 Die question

On my V3 reverse, the line below the S is like your pictures. But it is confusing. Not like the page shows for die 2. Thanks. Tentative confirmation I'm not seeing the Trust scratch masquerading as a polish line. Wouldn't presume this to be die #3, but most likely not #1 or #2. Does yours have the ...

Re: 8 Tail Feather Reverse Images

Thanks for the images. I am trying to focus in on the little feathers that are near the wing base and the legs, where the famous "comma" feather is. I am finding that these feathers evolved differently in the VAMS and it helps to at least pin down which stage of reverse die was being used. There is...
