Re: 1922-P collar and shoulder clashes:

If you don't I am going to figure out how to send this ugly coin to Leroy. :popcorn: he isn't going to like that coin with gunk and will probably reject it. have you looked these lists over? http://ec2-13-58-222-16.us-east-2.compute.amazonaws.com/wiki/1922-P_Clashed_Die_Attribution http://ec2-13-58...

Re: 1878 VAM-84..Washed out 'L'. Broken 'D'

Hi everyone, thanks for your feedback. Apart from the 'PUP's' mentioned, another one is the Die Chip on the eagle's right wing. As for experience cleaning with chemical's, I have none. Will leave this for a later date. acetone won't hurt that coin in probably a hundred year soak and a high probabil...

Re: 1922-P collar and shoulder clashes:

paint.net is pretty useful and free. you can also use PtrScr on the keyboard to get snapshots of what you are working on completely circumnavigating ANY software program but you aren't saving as nice of an image. also windows "snip" is one of my all-time favorites. does the same thing as above excep...

can this be cleaned without damaging coin.
do you have any experience using acceptable chemical compounds on coins? ie: acetone, e-zest etc.

Welcome. All Morgan and Peace dollars are vams, some are just worth a lot more than others. What you have on the "S" in PLURIBUS is a strike thru and/or an impurity streak. Vams are not identified by these. Hope this helps.
i agree. +1

Re: One PCGS Order Grades In

nice group. i do enjoy someone posting early dollars here. the bb-181 info i think is a bit out-dated. it is the 2nd most common in the pops with several pieces over vf. a quick search only shows 1 in ha.com archives which is a big statement in itself but other venues are known to sell a lot of earl...

Re: Name That VAM - 1891-O edition

i can't help but wonder if the "fracture" that they, whomever they are, are referring to, is that monstrous eye clash on the reverse and fracture was simply the term applied that that "damaged"? good point about the person giving the coin to Preston being the technical discoverer but that does not h...

i've seen them into the hair as well. you can probably look up many auction archives on these as i've seen many dozens. a popular one no doubt.

a nice one but it looks like 1a1.

1a2 is double clashed. if yours is, doesn't look like it from the images.

Re: Another Darkside Illusion? 1922-S

i usually get a well-ventillated area with a jar of acetone, with a lid and let the coin just sit in there for a while, minutes, hours, days, depending on how difficult crap like that is to get off. usually a q-tip dipped in acetone and a light spinning motion will tell ya if it is easy or difficult...
