Need Contemporary Counterfeits for Pics

Post by messydesk » Sun Sep 17, 2023 6:19 pm

I've been approached by Winston Zack, who is the author of the "Bad Metal" series about contemporary counterfeits. He's in need of good full-coin pictures of the following from the Micro O family for his third volume, which will include silver dollars:

• 1893-O VAM 9
• 1894-O VAM VNA-B
• 1896-O VAM 26
• 1900-O VAM 22C2
• 1900-O VAM 60
• 1900-O VAM 62
• 1900-O VAM VNA-A
• 1901-O VAM 42
• 1901-O VAM 58
• 1901-O VAM 61
• 1901-O VAM 67

If you have some of these and you'd like your coins included in his book, let me know. If you like, you can send them to me and I'll photograph them.

John:
The three PCGS-graded Micro-O dates that are labeled 4, 5 and 3 could actually be something else, right?
When in doubt... don't.

There are two obverse dies for 1902-O Micro Os, so those could actually be VAM 96. The 96-O and 00-O only had one obverse paired with the Micro O reverse.
