Re: 25 P reverse question

I see the PMD mentioned, but it appears that the underlying coin is VAM 1L

Re: 1921 Peace photos as posted on PCGS

This coin appears to have the die scratch E of ONE parallel to the ray of VAM 1F. With the hind of a collar clash in the area of K4-5, it may be a VAM 1F2. I don't see the striations in the area of S O of VAM 1H.

Re: Back from LEROY 6-25-21 - FIVE for FIVE

Are there any meaningful die markers, die cracks, etc on 1923S VAM 1FM?
Thanks,

Re: 1934-S question

I can't tell from the photo is this is die doubling, machine doubling, or an artifact in the photo. I am aware to 2 different DDOs in 1934S, the VAM 3 & another which is nearly identical to it, neither of these would be easy to attribute from a photo.
Hope this is helpful,
David

Re: 1924 VAM 1D? 8B?

Listing these in the order in which they were produced: VAM 8 > 8B > 8C > 8A > 8D. They are out of chronological order as the VAM 8A was listed before the die gouge in eye was recognized or the unpolished clash was discovered. Part of what makes VAM collecting fun!

Re: 1924 VAM 1D? 8B?

VAM 8C. The VAM 8B did not last long before the clash was polished out.

Re: 1922-D VAM 8

This looks like a scratch on the coin, as it extends onto the rim. I will look at my VAM 8 to see if I can find anything in this area of the coin.

Re: 1925-P VAM-1H heavy polishing/cleaning

First of all, the coin is not a 1H, although is could be a later die state from the same die. My discovery coin does not have the vertical file lines below LL of DOLLAR. Your coin has polished clash marks on eagle's shoulder, but I do not recognize it. The lines on the obverse appear to be due to se...

I don't have the DC for VAM 1H, but your photos match my coin.
