1891S Vam 8a

Post by Jodemyer » Mon Nov 28, 2022 12:45 am

I love this one, all the die cracks and the huge die gouges. Thanks for checking it out.

Matches my lovely one (well, she's lovely to me). Cracks up near the left wing are there, too... Matter of fact, mine looks like a few of them (O, wing, and M) progress all the way to the denticles. Can't quite see if yours are the same but look to be?

Really nice to see collections of coolness, rather than value, nice grade too.
When it's no longer fun, I think I'm done!

Thanks keilg1, PickNGrin and SilverToken! The more cracked, gouged, clashed or doubled the more I like them!
That is a beauty keilg1! I think the cracks are close to the same but here are a few more pics of the areas you mentioned and a few more. The wing and O cracks on this one are really light at the denticles if there at all....My eyes are not the best even with my # 3 readers!

I tag this type as Die Crack Haven and am a total sucker for Super Crackers, and even more so
when Super Clashed, which many Super Cracks are. Really cool when Mirrored as well with all 3
PUPS. tHANKS for posting this beauty

Thanks morganman! There is something extremely satisfying about ones with cracks and clashes and doubling and gouges and RPM's when I see one! I am like...ah there you are! When I am looking for a new one those are the ones that I stop for...I dont even look at the value as far as currency worth...Perfect coins are beautiful but not what I look for.
