1886-p Morgan VAM-6 - Sinking Die

Post by jgrinz » Fri Apr 12, 2019 9:02 pm

Curious because as this coin was struck it caused a lot of damage via die cracks / doubling
stretched stars etc
It definitely looks like a VAM-6 agree ??

I knew it was a 1886 P before I saw the number in the photo! They must have set a record amount of coins struck with those dies. Sure makes Vamming fun!

Yep. LDS VAM 6. I think the clashed letters are long worn off the die by the time you get that break in the date. I wouldn't be surprised if these dies struck 500,000 coins.

And not a single one of them went into circulation... If someone wanted to really study the aging of a set of dies, though this would make a great subject!
I go totally NUTS for WOW! VAMs!! Or is that from WOW! VAMs?
