Anyone recognize these 21P D2 breaks? (it's VAM 3CV!)

Post by weth » Sun Nov 10, 2019 7:14 pm

Hi gang,

Took some pictures using a microscope at work - didn't see the "point" text in the lower left until later. Anyway...

Saw this 1921P D2 with some interesting breaks. Can't match it to the break guide, or the scribbles guide. Break across the neck to the second star:

Break coming off of the hair, down to the second 1:

Break coming off the cap, up to the U:

Wing also has some file lines:

Here's a basically useless photo of me failing to capture the scribbles. They're most prominent coming out of the top part of the leg:

I'll try to take better scribbles photos. Any insight would be appreciated!

Crack coming out of the 1 looks a lot like 3V2, but the cap crack doesn't fit.
When in doubt... don't.

Nice find. Not sure what VAM this is. I’ll try to look into it over the next couple days.

Does the obverse crack extend to the designers initial?

Hey Mitch - it does, as it goes just under the M and into the hair.
I am likely sending the coin to Dennis so that someone can take actually useful photos of this mystery...

Thanks Tom
I have 15 tracked for designers I intial crack
But your 2nd star and Pluribus
Cracks have eliminated all of them as match.

Before you send to Mr. 44 can you shoot
The initial from the obverse and America
And States from the reverse please.

Sorry I didn't post more photos, Mitch!

Dennis helped me identify this one, and I agree that it looks to be a VAM 3CV. Thanks, Dennis!

Wow
Nice work. I have a 3CV, but my coin doesn't have any cracks.
