Morgan 21-P VAM-3X (VEDS) with Planchet Crack

Post by Kissov » Tue Jan 19, 2021 8:34 pm

Here is a VEDS example of Morgan 21-P VAM-3X. Quite a bit more going on in the scribbles area compared to VAM-3GY.

There appear to be three diagonal scratches in the UTFs (from bottom to top): One from the fifth UTF to the leg, one from the fourth UTF through the fifth UTF and to the leg, and one between the fourth and fifth UTFs.

There are no die cracks on this example, so the progression is: This->3GY->3X.

This example has a significant planchet crack running from the rim, through the first left star, through liberty's neck, and ending up near her ear.

On the reverse the crack runs through the eagle's right wing.

Nice! That's a really long crack.

I feel fortunate to have two 1921-P cracked planchets: 3Y2 and 61A.
When in doubt... don't.

Very nice long planchet crack ! VAM 3X exhibits a prominent displaced field break at eagle's left wing tip in late die stage.

Ken,
I'm not much of a cracked planchet fan, but yours is pretty cool.
Nice going!

If I had run across this coin with that planchet crack, I would have bought it in a heartbeat. Very nice example IMHO.
