Morgan 1921-S VAM-1BF

Post by Kissov » Sat Jul 25, 2020 3:12 pm

I tried to make this thing into a 21-P D2 reverse.

But I finally ran the scribbles (and the UTF gouge) to 1921-S VAM-1BF.

You can kinda see the mostly filled "S" mint mark under high magnification, but it is virtually invisible with a hand lens.

Very sneaky filled S mintmark ! Most people would identify as 1921 P without a second look. Thanks for
interesting post. 8-)

Kissov, if it helps. 21-s morgans can be identified as such by the overall look of the obv alone and a glance at the reverse usually confirms (even without a mintmark.) i say this to encourage you in the future that you can tell a 21-s the vast majority if not all of the time once you start noticing the subtleties of the S vs P & D coins. hope it helps. nice images btw :mrgreen:

Thanks.

21-S coins generally have "soft" details, are often weakly struck, etc. On this one I fell victim to the scribbles and immediately went to the 21-P scribbles page without a second thought.
