Need help with 1889 dollar markings

Post by Kcf9572 » Mon Sep 09, 2019 1:42 pm

Hello, I just joined literally within hours, so please forgive any repetition of this question. I know nothing about coins so found this site and hoping to get an answer. I have these coins I bought in a garage sale and noticed some odd marks. Wondering if these are typical or unique.
Hopefully the pictures will work. There are lines found through areas of the coin. Around nose, chin and in god words on back.
Thank you,
Keith

Do they hurt the value much?

Not at all. Some are worth a premium.

Welcome. People here will help you attribute your coin as to what VAM number it is. I, personally, would send it into varslab.com: Variety Slabbing Company. He will attribute it and put it in a holder for you. He does not grade it. He does great work. Nice find..

Welcome to the FUN Keith!
My guess is that you have a VAM 19B2.

Here's a link for you to compare

Nice find

Sure looks 19b2 - Both b1 & b2 have the clash episodes but b2 has the small M clash just above D in GOD reverse
Tough to see for a beginner--- Also my grade guess is ms62/3
I have a pcgs ms 65 which is a top pop in SSDC registry

A lot going on with clashing obverse counter clasing and super reverse top of wreaths clashing

A heck of a start for a new member/ Congrads and welcome to our ADDICTION You will get hooked

I am hooked for 50 ++ yrs now

Thank you very much. Yeah I am getting too into looking for stuff now. I think I’m already driving people nuts posting every coin I find. But thank you for the welcome
