Re: Apply VamWorld Knowledge gently to your other areas

Geseas i coauthored a book on walking liberty half dollars. i tried to get as many doubled dies, rpms, and other varieties in there as possible but quite a few did not make it. those missing were the missing designers initials(no AW), and the 1918s clash that produced a huge extra ray on the sun. a...

Re: OFF TRACK [1916 PROOF BUFALO NICKEL]

Yup, it’s me. Sitting at home with shingles. Recovering from food poisoning, and readjusting to new medication. My thyroid meds quit working a while back and I didn’t suspect it. Been in a mess the past few weeks. After PAN, i did the Indianapolis show and have been sitting at home. For those of you...

This is not a cancelled die. As was stated. This is a coin that was cut with a knife.

Re: OFF TRACK [1916 PROOF BUFALO NICKEL]

that 1916 is incredible, and then the notes? who needs better? your 1915 may have some improper metal mix, some may find that undesirable, others find it MORE interesting(like woodies, on lincoln cents).but hey, i'd be happy to have a 1915 like that. a very rare bird.

Re: "2021" Morgan and Peace dollar imitations from Mint

@messydesk LOL!
and without DMPl and pl's, with the goofy looking privy marks, and all, they are taking a good product and dumbing it down. and then not making enough for the common man to get them at the bank, even if they made them in copper nickel, is sad.

And then there are the misattributed and non attributed. I realize those old scratches but they are naked eye visible. Should be a...

Re: cool for me find 1889 o vam 1a1
