ANA find

Post by ashmore86 » Tue Aug 17, 2021 3:55 pm

So once every 20 years or so, you find something you just can not pass up. That happened at the ANA for me. Brandi, my girlfriend called me over to look at this item and things were set into motion. To cut to the chase, hopefully this will help you understand what it was...

JR is going to help me with the rest of the story... JB has also done some pictures. more to come.

Awesome purchase, Ash. Great to be able to see them at the show. You owe Brandi big time for bird dogging those for you.

Way cool pickups. Nice to see JR in photo. Sharp-eyed Brandi.

Those are awesome Ash! :mrgreen:

Just wondering what if anything was going thru the worker's mind as he cancelled those dies.
Did he ever think they would be valuable all these years later?

Great photos, Ash. Thanks for bringing those by the table- I never thought I'd get to hold an original pair of Morgan dollar dies!!!

Sooooo, not to be a stick in the mud....Are those not US Mint property, and should have been properly destructed? Or is there some purchase process for canceled Dies...kenny

They are absolutely amazing by the way. Has anyone given you a Y.S., cause Ya Do!... :lol:

They have been defaced. After that they would have been regarded as little more than scrap or trash by the mint

It's unclear which variety was involved. The finer details are lost , but the date position matches VAMs 2 and 5. It is unclear if the reverse die was actually used for coininge.
