1884-CC DMPL VAM 5 I think

Here's what I'm thinking is a VAM 5 with some die clashes that are not shown for this variety. Am I correct with my observations or am I missing something. (1) No Doubling of the MM, (2) die clash Obv neck and upper vee. (3) die clash between right wreath and wing IMG_2427.jpg IMG_2426.jpg IMG_2425....

The last picture says it all. Look at the inside of the O in DOLLAR. Same shadow as the mint mark. Sure sign of machine doubling.
I kind of thought but needed to check to be sure. Thanks a bunch

1896-O VAM-7 Doubled 96 rEV MM ?

I have this particular 1896-O that by all indications on the Obv tells me this is a VAM 7, however there is no mention to what I'm seeing on the rev of what would appear to be an O/O, or doubling of the MM. Attached are pictures, is this normal for a VAM 7. Nothing on the VAM description page for th...

Same 1935 Peace $1 with 3 different grades from PCGS & NGC

Proof positive that grades from the 2 top TPG's can't be relied upon. Speculation abounds even among those we rely to be the best possible source to give a reliable grade on our coins for which to base value. Here is the same coin that was first sent to PCGS that came back as MS62 (yes I should have...

I'm not slamming at all. Just pointing you to a resource. So many vams involve small details that I have a hard enough time seeing on my own coins in hand. Vern

Anyone else want to slam me for for making a mistake, or are you all done now. I already said that I stand corrected 4-5 post ago. I think I got it, and thanks for all your help you gave in answering my request for help. No longer need help on this coin, its a 1W

Re: Could someone help me identify this 1924 Peace VAM?

8 B is as close as I can come to identifying this variety. But only close, does not show all the attributes.
Any thought? New DC?

Re: Could someone help me identify this 1924 Peace VAM?

Best I can find that is even close is a 19 and only because of the die gouges in the rays next to olive branch, and by looking at the LFCP. Noticed on 8B obv die clash in crevice of neck Obverse II1- Clashed die with bottom of N vertical bar of UNUM from reverse showing in neck crevice next to left ...
