I need help, with my 1924 Peace dollar

Post by bhinkle » Thu May 07, 2020 2:34 am

I have an ungraded 1924 Peace dollar, that I had attributed as a vam 8A.
With Tom's help, I finally realized. that mine has only one die break, in the hair.
This puzzles me, I thought, that the vam 8B and 8C, didn't have any die breaks,
in the hair, which mine has the small die break, but also has the reverse die
markers, of a vam 8C, with the two clashes, above DOLLAR, in the rays, the
same die breaks, through the top of the cap and rays, on LIBERTY'S head.
Mine also has the gouged eye and I think I see some faint
diagonal clashes, running down, from the for?
Here are some additional pictures.
What do you think?
Thanks, Bert

Looks like the order is 8, 8B, 8C, then 8A. But the 8B and 8C listings also mention a listing for 8D. Is there an 8D that hasn't been added to the listing page. Was 8D listed due to the extra break? Inquiring minds want to know ....

I know Jon,
Here is some information, that Tom emailed me, maybe we will get an answer

I have a post out for the 1924-P VAM 1BC was killed and 1924-P VAM 8D put into play

Also, I saw I didn't complete my sentence, in my original description.
I stopped at 'for' and I thought I said 'forehead', like below.

'I think I see some faint diagonal clashes, running down, from the forehead.'
Thanks, Bert

Thank you Dr Close.
I was just trying to understand, where that other 'vertical' die break was,
like in the pictures, on the vam 8C page
