Re: 1896-P Possible Discovery?

The number of VAMs that PCGS chooses to attribute on its holders is extremely small. The number of VAMs it attributes that are not on a major list (8TF, Top 100, Hot 50, Hit List 40 for example) is miniscule. PCGS has had a longtime policy of not putting "Discovery Coin" on its holders. I have seen ...

Re: 2 more unknown 1921-Ds

Somehow... ridiculously... I had overlooked a few pretty significant cracks on coin #1 -- but none of which match up with VAM 1AM:

Coin #1 may be VAM 1AM EDS
Coin #2 may be VAM 1AN EDS

Thank you Roger!
Coin #2 is indeed VAM 1AN.
But I'm still struggling to match #1 to 1AM, despite the greak similarity with the wreath-to-D crack. I'm going to go back to the photo drawing board and see what else I can find that might help.

Keep in mind that you are disagreeing with the Director of Variety Attributions at ANACS.

Can anyone help with these? I've come up empty with the scribbles and die crack guides.

Re: 1896-P Possible Discovery?

I see where there may have been some confusion about the existence of VAM 4B, as there was no page for it on VAMWorld for some reason, even though it's been in the supplement since 2018. As John R said, these latest updates simply corrected the order in which they were produced. This is a message t...

Re: 1879-S VAM-77A

The PCGS Pop Report appears to be messed up. Here's what comes up when I look at the 1879-S R78 VAMs -- there aren't even listings for VAM 77 and 77A : 1879-S R78 pops copy.jpg But when I enter the serial number of the coin shown by iceman (41774463), the coin does come up and it shows it as being a...

Re: 1879-S VAM-77A

PCGS apparently hasn't attributed one yet, because there aren't any in the Pop Report. I presume they would attribute 77A (or they might call it 77), because both are known Reverse of '78 varieties and PCGS attributes all of the others. I suspect that not having graded any so far speaks to how very ...

Hi Dennis
As always, I love your photos.
Did you try VAM-3GL2?

Thanks Lee!! :D
You put me on exactly the right track. My coin is a 'tweener between 3GL1 and 3GL2; it doesn't have any trace of the crack from M to the back of the cap that's seen on 3GL2.

The grades of each coin would probably help your effort.
