Re: Like Clashes? Have a Seat

This is a great site!

I am confused once again. Can someone explain to me those horizontal lines in the photos. Could they be roller lines? Very interesting coin. Thanks!

Re: Press feeder/ejector gouges - Are these counted as VAM varieties?

Are coins of the same date/mint/die pair known but with differing rotation between obverse and reverse? RogerB, I am confused with these feeder gouges and can't answer you question, but could you be considering here that a change in degree of rotation between obv. And reverse could also make a chan...

What I think is "don't". Thanks Dennis, I won't. I had my doubts.... I would like to take credit for drawning that circle with the nano-tech in the photo above....but can't. It was already there.

Re: 1921-p VAM-72A 2 finger guide gouges?

I sometimes notice a hairline crack from the bottom, Second post of the "N" in "UNITED" to the outside of left wreath, on all pictures. It also helps to squint. I don't know of any 21-P D1 or D2 Reverse cracks from the N in UNITED to the wreath. Not impossible, but I've not seen that particular cra...

Thank you Ijs123. I appreciate your taking the time to help me figure out this coin. I made a mistake using the word 'clash' above. I meant gouge. I edited my mistake, several times and counting... My last photo looks like I painted something on top and along the trailing edge of left wing. My wife ...

Thanks Ijs123. Please take a look at this next photo. It seems it would be easy to get a shot of something that winks at you in bright lite, but that is not the case for me. Notice the gouge spot below the A in AMERICA. Only the Vam-3AB and Vam-72A has a gouge continuation there that I know of. I wa...

1921-p VAM-72A 2 finger guide gouges?

Hello all, Thank you for a great site. Please take a look to compare these two photos. Both are from the same coin, same camera (focus stacked) and lighting. I think it maybe a 21 V72A: GCS2698.JPG GCS2689.JPG i wanted to zoom into the texture of the two samples and the interaction with the fields. ...

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. This is the area I was looking at; Screenshot_2020-06...

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...
