Re: 1884 O Doubling or Machine Doubling

Thanks all. I was wondering because it seemed like strike doubling would affect more than a specific area. Your explanation makes sense and is informative, thanks very much.

1884 O Doubling or Machine Doubling

Working with some new coins and I can't figure this one out, so I'd like to ask the experts. This is an 1884 O that has significantly doubled mint mark, and doubled "OLL". Other letters don't show this degree of doubling. None of the O/O overdates seem to match. I don't see any other VAMs with rever...

Re: 1887-O VAM 28

Thanks...bummer. With the I4 interest I thought it might have some premium. Still fits my collection, and I like that the digits show so clearly in the denticles, so I'm good. Thanks very much for your feedback!

1887-O VAM 28

Just realized, while double checking VAM assignments, that my 1887-O has clear 1, first 8, and 7 in the denticles. Appears to be VAM 28. It had been given MS61 by ANACS but I cut it out of holder to display in collection. Flat ear but not many scuffs. I cannot find any sale prices of the coin, but i...

Re: 1904-S VAM-12 Spiked 1 - Far Date

Thank you folks. The VAM 13 works for the date (location and spiked one, including the die chip) and the polishing lines on the reverse above the eagles foot. I got too absorbed in looking at the 12 because it was so close. The R without the toe is still a mystery.

1904-S VAM-12 Spiked 1 - Far Date

I was just killing time with un-VAM'd coins to see if I could assign a VAM. I saw the new 2019 addition for 1904-S VAM 12 with a spiked 1. I thought ah ha that fits and was about to assign it when I happened to notice two things. My coin has a far date with the spiked 1, while the coin on VAMWorld h...

Submitting Procedure?

Sorry if I missed something that is here, but on old WIKI site there was a page for submitting to LVA for attribution as new VAM. I don't see it here. I had a couple dollars I wanted to send him but held off while he was unavailable. I have been off doing other things and just started looking at new...
