2 more unknown 1921-Ds (now just 1)

Post by DHalladay » Sun Aug 28, 2022 1:00 pm

Can anyone help with these? I've come up empty with the scribbles and die crack guides.

Coin #1 (AU53):

Thank you Roger!
Coin #2 is indeed VAM 1AN.
But I'm still struggling to match #1 to 1AM, despite the greak similarity with the wreath-to-D crack. I'm going to go back to the photo drawing board and see what else I can find that might help.

Somehow... ridiculously... I had overlooked a few pretty significant cracks on coin #1 -- but none of which match up with VAM 1AM:

Coin #1 has no match that is presently listed on 1921 D Die Crack Break Guide. The die crack from D left into the wreath does not match up with a die crack from bottom serif of L thru top of A into right wreath.
