How many 1921-S 1B6 Thornheads do you own

Post by Nickcap » Thu May 16, 2019 1:45 pm

I am doing a study on some of the thronheads. In this process, I have acquired over 60 1B6 thronheads (1B6A and 1B6B).

How many do other collectors have?

Zero.
But if you ever want to talk about 1880-O VAM 49...
When in doubt... don't.

Those are such cool coins with so much going on on one (man that doesn't look right typed out) coin.

Just cherrypicked another slider thorny from a "junk" 21 BIN at the Vegas show. Haven't looked closely yet but I think it's a 1B6b.. maybe an A

Darn it! Another 1B6b :cry:

I can't be sad though, this is my 3rd (Yes, THIRD) 1B6b cherrypick in as many weeks.. I'm on a roll, apparently. #FeelingThorny :mrgreen:

Another thing I've noticed.. The area where the super shallow, small 1B6a gouge is just after the cap nub is very prone to scuffing just like the M & E clash rev areas... I'm guessing there are a good amount of 1B6a's out there that will forever be called 1B6b's due to well placed scuffing completely obscuring the 6a gouge.
