Re: 1901 O Possible Discovery Coin

Hello,

Do you think there is a crack in the metal joining the two pieces together? It looks to me as if you wiggled the piece it may break in that spot. I wouldn't poke it with stick.. #9904-6 in your photos is what I was looking at. Interesting.

Re: odd PCGS email last night

Your explanation is the most likely one. I've mis-keyed digits before and ended up with weird things in my inventory that I've had to delete right away, so I suppose it's equally likely that someone else did it and didn't double-check before sending a remove request. it could have been me. If it pr...

Re: Acetone geyser.. PSA

Thank you so much for sharing.
I had no idea. That suspension of a coin using a shot glass or any tapered glass vessel mentioned by Kurt 28 is very interesting to me. I assume you then administer a rinse and a air dry? No touching....., (kind of like these virus lessons.)

Re: Acetone geyser.. PSA

So I was running low on acetone and got a new quart at Walmart. When I get home I usually "burp" my new acetone bottles as they expand a bit on the shelves. Well, this time it exploded on my face like Old Faithful. Not too bad, I quickly washed my face and arms and my eyelids did their job in quick...

Re: Acetone geyser.. PSA

I worked with acetone a lot in a machine shop. It is a great cleaner for grease, oil, and inks. It`s harmless on your skin and good for cuts. It is safe when used properly. Great site here. I am learning alot. Is the acetone coin bath an accepted method for silver coin conservation? I understand th...

Re: 1923 possible Clash?

The convex radius of a Peace dollar die (obv or rev, hardened die) was 25-inches. Draw an arc with a radius of 25 inches on paper. The outside 1.5-inches along the curve is what the face of a Peace dollar die would look like in cross section. Thanks RogerB and Messydesk, I am sitting at a 48"rd. Ta...

Re: 1923 possible Clash?

That's a feed finger scrape, not a clash mark. Very common. The feed fingers that push finished coins out of the coining chamber sometimes lightly scrape the anvil die (Peace dollar obverse) repetitively enough to impart a shiny spot that grows on the die over time. Some of them have been listed, s...

Re: 1934-S Vam3?

If the seller is getting his pricing info from unsold lots on eBay, I'm sure he'll be happy with his joining them as unsold lots. It does seem the coin has been cleaned, but that's because there's some remaining black gunk on it. The hairlines I'm seeing in the picture aren't really screaming "hars...

Brand new copy of Roger's book would cost you less than $50. Well worth the price to be able to just turn around and grab it off your own shelf.
I have been thinking that very same thing... Spend a little of this stimulation check and maybe benefit this great hobby. Win, win.
Thanks vampicker
