Post by vamsterdam » Mon Sep 16, 2019 8:19 pm

3 new 1879s r79, that he was quite excited about saying, "WOW! some new engraved and acid treated leaves on three 1879s!", amd he took lots of pictures, but shot down my new 1879s r78 for the 2nd time, saying it is vam 67 even though he can't find the die markers, and 1879s r79 with obverse of v34b for the 3rd time, saying too dirty. Will someone start the pages for me? I will get pictures up when I catch up with the lawn.

WTG! I'll start the new pages. Try to include a photo of your letter from LVA.

The new new pages have been setup. However, for some reason JB has the 1879-S VAM List page still locked. In order to view the new pages just go to my Home page (same data just a different interface) by clicking on this link: My Morgan & Peace Dollar VAMWorld Home Page. Next, click on the "Morgan Dollar VAMs by Date". Then locate the 1879-S (second column and second row) and click on it. From the right side of the screen click on "Official VAM Listing for The 1879-S Slanted Arrow Feather" then scroll down to the new VAM pages. Once you click on a VAM page you can add the photo's and LVA letter.

I had forgotten that I had left that page locked a while ago. It's unlocked now and has been updated to contain the 3 new VAMs

I am finally back from another show and church yesterday. Will try to get those pictures. Anyone want to post closeups of a vam 67 bear claw? I had pictures of it somewhere but Leroy has Missy’s my new 79s r 78 is a vam 67 even though the die scratches in the t of liberty are not there.

And of course my coin does not match, even though Leroy insists it is a vam 67.

One coin that Leroy did list, he failed to mention a hair clash at UST on the reverse. I thought this clash was significant enough to mention as I have been trying to tie vam D, vam 1J, vam 91, and and unlisted die pair that I call vam 91 die 2(submitted and rejected by Leroy as too insignifigant) . I tried to show how they were related but Leroy shot it down as insignificant. He even said they can’t be related. Funny how minor later date dies get listed but these don’t .
