Re: Planchet problem or break; what do you think?

I will guess lamination also, I have seen similar feature on a few Peace dollars. If someone finds another, then you have a major find!

Re: 1926 P help, please.

It appears that the die & coin are worn, but it appears to be a VAM 2. What you see on the obverse is machine doubling.

Re: 1923-S VAM ???

Hi Tom, I think that you have a VAM 1AU, of which the old VAM 1J is the LDS. Unfortunately, the pages don't show the die cracks well other than the LLQ of the obverse, but your photos on the VAM 1AU page would be a big help. Even if not a new discovery, it is still a nice coin,. Keep on looking, the...

Does your coin have the die crack at date of VAM 1BM?

Re: peace dollar discovery coins

I just just today saw your post. I have the discovery coin of the 1923D VAM 1AZ on the VAMworld BST on a separate post.
I will be looking at some of my others which I would be willing to sell.

Re: Darkside Help, Please. Clashed 1923-S

First of all, there are quite a few clashed & polished dies listed for 1923S. However, your coin has what appears to be a die break in the hair (photo 2nd from top) which is not listed, but should be listable. If this turns out to be as it appears, nice pickup!

Re: Discovery coin conundrum

All the more reason for diligent researcher(s) to be doing a date study. This date is not alone in confusion of the listings, and Leroy does not have the coins when he examines a coin sent to him.

Re: 1924 Peace Dollar VAM-1D1 and 1B1

I have examined 2 specimens of VAM 1D, they have the same obverse die. The later die state of this obverse, and I think this reverse, is VAM 1W. Given that we know that the clashed E occurred at least twice (VAM 8B being the other), I have no problem believing that it happened thrice. John, if you w...

1921 Peace dollar VAM 3 pair with 2 different obverse dies

In doing date studies, I have been looking at listed VAMs for more than 1 mate. I recently found a new die pairing with 1921 Peace VAM 3. While the differences may not be listable per se, I wanted to bring this to the attention of the VAM collecting public. If someone will send me a note explaining ...
