1881-O September Letter and "O Set Left" to Bed

Post by HawkeEye » Mon Sep 30, 2019 12:24 am

Well after a lot of late night contemplation, reworking, and rethinking I finally have the "O Set Left" group of VAMs sorted out.

There are a few other gems in the newsletter, but that is the bulk of the writing and I am glad to have this one behind me.

Be sure and scroll down the page to the matrix with the VAM characteristics which really helps with understanding.

A big thanks to Mitch for proofing my work.

On to newer topics and back to collecting I hope.

Enjoy

Very nicely done, a breakdown of the O set left varieties can be used by all.

I finally got a chance to look it over and sent some comments. Nice presentation! It does look like VAM 77/77A is a duplicate of VAM 68, however.

Mitch and I were discussing that we thought 77 might surface as something existing but I just ran out of time. Thanks and I will check it out. I know there are others with a displaced field.

The displaced field on that is a "nothing burger." It's simply a late die state coin with lots of wear around the crack. The earlier die pairs that use this reverse might also show it to some degree.

Agree, but might be a way for us to locate and correct some listings. If you already sent me a note I did not get it so you might resend. Thanks.
