New Discovery

Post by billcoin56 » Fri Nov 18, 2022 5:11 pm

I've received back from ANACS and John Roberts Discovery coin 1882-S VAM #42. The coin is a mating of VAM #9 obverse and VAM #30 reverse. Do I need to do anything else to have this coin added to the catalog?

I'm tagging @fogie to let him know; he'll take care of it.

Also, you need to post the Discovery description and plate images you received, so an attribution page can be created by either Fogie or @PacificWR or @messydesk .
When in doubt... don't.

For some unknown reason my computer can't find my scanner and I can't find the disc to re-install, so can't post the letter or plate photos. But also the guidelines stated, "Coins that are found to be new varieties will be added to the Catalog without further action by the submitter". I thought this would mean that the info. would be transmitted to here. Am I wrong or has that changed?

I've already sent the plates and a copy of the letter to @messydesk

I already have the page generated but haven't uploaded it yet. Often, I'll have it up before the submitter is aware of the discovery. It'll be up tonight.
