New Type of VOTW is up

Post by PacificWR » Mon Jun 17, 2019 12:52 am

Switching things up just a little bit with this week’s VOTW. This week’s VOTW is not just one VAM, but eight VAM’s . When grouped together they make up a pretty new variety set. I call it the Flawed Logo Punch Variety set (spiked 1). Not only is the Flawed Logo Punch Variety set new, but it has at least one or more representative from each of the three mints and is unique to the 1904 Morgan Dollar series . Note: this new Variety set would make a neat addition to the SSDC registry. Checkout the Home Page on VAMWorld.

Wayne, nice idea for a set! Wonder who did the research behind this and got Leroy to re-think the "spiked 1"? Bet whoever did it did a die study folks, die study!

If anyone wonders what Wayne is referring to, see below. I think it would be a cool set to complete.

The 1904-O VAM-4 shares the same obverse as VAMs-4A & 4B.

The 1904-P VAM-3 and VAM-3A share the same obverse.

The 1904-P Mystery Coin is now the VAM-10.

So yeah, 8 coins in the full set and 5 coins in the short set. Thanks for thinking of this Wayne!

Great idea for VOTW Wayne! I love it. "Logotype"... learned another very interesting part of the history and minting process.

Thanks for the extra info and excellent illustrations Larry. (That's all I need - another cool set to add to my list of goals.)

Thanks guys. Good examples Alan. It is a cool variety set unique to the 1904 Morgan Dollar series. All three mints have Flawed Logotype specimens.

Very nice pick. Glad to see you caught the bug. The Flawed Logotype Varieties is located on the Home Page under "VAM List". Right under Morgan Dollar Acid Tread Dies". Flawed Logotype Varieties

Mike, can you check your new 1904-S VAM-10 and see if it has a beard spike on the eagle?

PacificWR Nice home page, interesting stuff.
Thanks. If anyone would like to use my VAMWorld home page to view Morgan and Peace Dollars feel free to do so (option #1). All you have to do is just add it to your favorites in your browser (just like any other bookmark). You will still have the full functionality of VAMWorld (left side of the window pane). In addition, I changed my startup page on my browser to option #1. That way I am ready to go. It's just an updated version of what we currently have.

Look's like your specimen is just like the DC. I picked-up a 1904-P last week but, I haven't had the chance to attribute yet.
