Re: 1898-O Cracket Bonnet

Messydesk: "In my opinion, if you're going to look for listings from displaced field breaks..." No, I am just trying to identify the VAM and thought the breaks might help in the process, but even with the bonnet break being common and known, apparently (ask fogie, he has "fourteen" VAM-12's with the...

Re: 1898-O Cracket Bonnet

fogie says "Good match for the VAM 12. The "long die break" really locks her in and I suspect would be easier to get listed." But I have a 1898-0 VAM-16 with a nearly identical long break at that right hand obverse side, cutting through the hair in the same location.

Re: 1898-O Cracket Bonnet

fogie says he has 14 with the bonnet break, says it is well known, should maybe then get a photo of a bonnet break and add it to the VAM-12 listing to show the die state or stage. Please don't use my photo, it isn't clear.

Re: 1898-O Cracket Bonnet

Camera is screwed, shooting fully closed, can't open the aperature wider, doesn't hold a focus, most photos here are out of focus. I think the heat builds up and affects the sensor.

Re: 1898-O Cracket Bonnet

The mm matches VAM-12, maybe the coin is a late die stage of VAM-12 where the bonnet "cracked" (cracketed) and some file lines were cleaned up, is my best guess, for today. So, "RAW MS63 VAM-12-mbg" it is.

Re: 1898-O Cracket Bonnet

Maybe VAM-12 but an alternative stage than shown, for example there is a lack of file lines between the neck and left wing. "Cracked" bonnet dothn't appear it photos documenting VAM. 1898-O 98 EOO_8417.jpg 1898-O Bowmm EOO_8410.jpg 1898-O Eagle EOO_8403.jpg 1898-O Ob Long Right Crack EOO_8417.jpg

Re: 1878-S VAM-1C Die Chip R, Reverse Die Used in 1879 (Reinstated 2015)

And today I am guessing it to be a VAM-24. Attribution Guide #4 was helpful. Issue I had (have) is a number of letters are doubled and didn't find these listed as PUPs. It's my final answer, VAM-24. 1878-S VAM-24 bow mm EOO_8378.jpg 1878-S VAM-24 arrowheads EOO_8378.jpg 1878-S VAM 24 RICA EOO_8376.j...

1878-S VAM-1C is my best guess, common in this grade?

Re: 1901-O VAM-25 Slanted Date, Polishing Lines Bands Wings

The reverse PUPS led me originally to conclude that the coin was VAM-25, now I see that triple ear bottom of VAM-50. Still, no information is provided as to the make-up of what the reverse of a VAM-50 should look like. 1901-O VAM-50 D00_9160 triple ear bottom.jpg 1901-O VAM-50 D00_9160 date.jpg 1901...
