1926 S Peace Dollar Vam?... Confused

Post by drbarba » Fri Mar 08, 2019 7:03 pm

Cant seem to find the right Vam for this coin...
Is it Vam-7 that just does not mention the doubling on liberty?

Need to see full coin pics. The doubling you see is not die doubling; it is machine/strike doubling. It results from a loose lie that shifts slightly during the striking process. The give-away is the flat, shelf-like appearance of the doubled portion. Here's a helpful primer on it: http://ec2-13-58-222-16.us-east-2.compu ... e_Doubling
I swear, someday I will learn how to grade Peace Dollars!

Your coin has a high S so it's probably not a V7.

If the coin was in better condition
Smaller identifiers would present themselves
So I say V2 unless you can produce another marker
