Your example looks like it is later than VAM 5C, but earlier than VAM 5D. If there is no discernible letter transfer, then I t...

Re: OT Florida finally on Stay at Home Order

We have been in a non essential SAHO for 2 weeks, extended to May 4th
EXCEPT for essential services

That would be everyone in MA - at least it looks like it on the roads

1887 p Morgan - That EVIL MIMIC in the rough 1D

Good Picture showing that there is no MPD in the denticles
Just what looks like a scratch for the obvious mark under the 8-7
and a couple of die chips at the 1 and 3 diastema to the left of it
There are no numbers there.
I had do debunk marks on one of my other coins.

You might want to add a picture of the die scratches shown at the US of PLURIBUS. This is the first place people go to verify this variety. Good luck!
Yeah looks like a duplicated a picture / Not sure if I can add them in now with bids though :/
Thanks though I do appreciate the heads up

Re: 1887-p Morgan VAM-11 Question

I guess I am not making myself clear (believe me nothing new ) I am pretty sure I see what is supposed to be the 7 but it doesn't look like anything like a part of a 7 - This is the denticle gap directly below the seven. It just looked odd … sorry if I disturbed … Thanks messydesk as I did not know ...

but it has a following arc below it also ,...
