Re: struck through?

That's a big planchet inculsion. It makes sense that they body-bagged it as a normal coin, since it's has a big negative effect on eye appeal.

I think an overlay will show drastic differences in the shape of the 5, as well. Intriguing.

I think you're just seeing the way the reeded edge makes contact with the slab gasket.

Re: Wiki page sample

Certainly looks familiar. Congratulations. I like the TOC option. I made a minor change to the main heading to reflect agreement with the subheading. It seems that the heading in VW10 has a typo. I'd say the error is actually is the other way around. O/Horizontal O makes more sense than O/O horizon...

Re: Wiki page sample

I just updated this page again. Now the different sections are level 2 headers, which causes a table of contents to be generated automatically at the top. It can be hidden by the user and perhaps always hidden by user preferences. I'll have to see if it can be moved to the right and not take up vert...

Cool! Is this the one you showed me at FUN? I wish he would have called it VAM 115, instead.

Absolutely. The problem is that it takes a lot more work to eliminate one than it does to get a new one assigned.

Re: Wiki page sample

looks good not sure why there is 2 headers for the page? can we eliminate 1 If you look closely, they're different sizes. The first is the page title, the second is the the VAM heading at the "heading 1" level. The same thing happens on the current VAMWorld VAM pages, but they are separated enough ...

Re: 1900-O VAM-15 or VAM-15A

All with two clashes show the transferred lettering, and so call them VAM 15A. I'm pretty sure the third clash wipes out the transferred letters. Applying simply the "letter transfer" rule, this would be called VAM 15. Of course, that causes confusion with what must be a rather rare unclashed versio...

Good job John. Really like the gallery option. Is the gallery option going to be standard?
Yes. It can be put on any page. I'd encourage its use for full-coin shots as well as collections of "additional photos" that aren't primary pick-ups on a coin.

Naturally, the markup is not the same between what was exported from Wikispaces and what needs to be imported into Mediawiki, Mediawiki ignores line breaks between text lines, and there are some characters in filenames tha...

It will be in hand shortly. Don't think it is a 5A.
I didn't even look at the references for that guess. I trained myself to check VAM 5A whenever I see the eagle's left wing look like that and there are no scribbles.
