Re: 1926s peace dollar gap?

Hard to determine due to contact marks on the coin. Try VAM 1Q or VAM 1R.

Re: Hammered 21... Can't nail it down tho + Which would u rather?

I agree that the coin on the right is the more desirable coin. In the close-up at the top, notice that there are 3 rays between the leg feathers & wing, instead of the normal 2.

Re: 1923 Unlisted Die Break?

What I see as possibly listable are the small die chip on the underside of Liberty's neck, a long die crack from the left side of neck into the field, and file lines on the reverse to polish off clash marks. Of these, the only one I think Leroy would list would be the die crack, and then only if the...

Re: 1923 S Peace dollar double clash spikes VAM?

After VAM 1CY was made, this reverse die was paired with a new obverse, creating VAM 1EZ. Your coin is worn, so I cannot determine if the die chip below B of LIBERTY is present. Or, your coin may have been struck before the die chip was formed.
Good job in VAMing this coin!

Re: 1924-P VAM ???

1924 VAM 8D was originally listed as VAM 8B, revised 2014. It has the terminal die state of VAM 8 reverse die, with a die crack on the wing, paired with a new obverse. I have not looked at mine for a doubled obverse.
So far, mine is the only one in the Registry, I would welcome some company!

Re: is leroy available to play with coins yet?

What I am doing, and would encourage others to do, is keeping track of coins I believe to be new discoveries, using my own numbering system. In doing so, I have found several listings which need to be killed. I am in no hurry, understanding that 2020 may be "lost year" with regard to VAM discoveries...

Re: 1925 s peace dollar

Attribution is correct, VAM 1A2. It is a common coin, so it may not be worth the cost of having attribution put on the label except to do so for your own benefit.
Hope this is helpful,

Re: My 1921 Peace dollar VAM 3

Nice pickup! Many 1921 Peace dollars have machine doubling, which your coins shows. At one time there was a 1921 "VAM 2" which later was de-listed as it was recognized to be machine doubling & not a doubled die. As many dies as were used in 1921, I am a little surprised than a true doubled die has n...

Re: Summer fun!! 2020

From looking at the data I could find, it appears that Orange county/Orlando is past their peak & on a slow downhill curve in new COVID cases. The governor's "opening up" the economy, as least so far, has not resulted in a meaningful increase in new cases. So far, the same has been true in TN & GA a...
