Re: 1878s Vam2?

My guess is this the reverse of a V-5, 7, 46, or 46A.

Re: 1878 S VAM 17 Somthing Progression Photos

I had a heck of a time getting the gouge remnant to show.

Re: LVA

Here is my Numismatic Scrapbook Magazine from April 1965.
John Roberts mentions this article a few discussion above.
It contains LVA article titled 1878 7/8 Tailfeather Silver Dollar: How and Why.
The write goes from page 948 to 953. Two of the pages contain 12 pictures, six pictures per page.

Re: 1892-CC What VAM ?

The 92-CC has a lot of toning.
I can easily see the reverse die clash by wreath.
I cannot see much of the obverse clashing.

1892-CC What VAM ?

A friend has this 92-CC.
The photo shows a lot of die cracks and a strong reverse clash.

Trying to locate someone

Re: Rare 1878s vam 67 found

I think this has been asked before -- any info on Calvin Cherry.
I see in LVA's 78S attribution guide Calvin last had a discovery of 78-S V-97 in Nov '05.

Re: Rare 1878s vam 67 found

My first impression is that the obverse looks very much like the obverse of V-104. The reverse has the mintmark set left like 104.

Re: 1900-O Morgan with THIS crack ... O/CC?

I have four long nocks 2-V26 and 2-V27.
They are raw and are low grade -- around VG8 to VG10.
I would like to sell -- if interested send me an email.
