1880 Vam 29-A checkmark?

Post by playtime1 » Sat Mar 23, 2019 7:28 pm

Here's a monster checkmark pulled out of the local junk coin bin. I know it's a 29, but could it be 29-A? Please help. Thanks.

There are no pictures of the 29-A on Vamworld. Does anyone have Leroy's most recent Morgan supplement for guidance?

Thanks guys. It makes sense I suppose, since it is a partial n clash that Leroy pulled the 29-A. :roll:

Great pick from a junkbin! I pushed one almost identical from one of my favorite fishing holes. Hoping for a low end mint state on mine.

I don't really understand the comment about the partial n clash and the delisting of 29A.

The obverse was used for the VAM-53. Then it clashed the first time and is the 53A. It clashed a second time and is a double clashed 53A (same VAM just looks a little different). A different reverse was then paired with the 53A obverse and this became the VAM-29/29A. So all 29s have a partial n clash. I think the confusion on the 29/29A listing (and delisting) is due to the fact that the VAM-29 was discovered before the VAM-53 and 53A.
Someone please correct me if I am wrong.
