Re: 78-S V72 Long nock PR62 in census?

As it turns out this coin is a double up. The winner of the coin crossed it into PCGS MS-63 PL. I have found a few coins won by members that crossed or where sent in by the winner of an auction coin for attribution that where doubled up in the population. On a rather common VAM its not really a big ...

Re: 78-S V72 Long nock PR62 in census?

I just looked it up, the original ANACS Cert lists this coin as a Long Nock only and it being proof Like only not a proof, nor is the VAM listed. As this coin has no Owner in the SSDC, nor do we have the VAM confirmed, and we also don't know if the coin is still in an ANACS holder as well as it bein...

Re: 1921-S VAM

This coin looks to have been clashed as some time, Try looking at all the clashed die varieties that are listed. It may not have letter transfer now, but in an earlier die state it may have and you can look for other pick up points.

Conformation of 1878 P 8TF 14.2 / 14.2a and / 14.2b

Well when I sent in the progression of the 1878 P 8 TF VAM 14.2 for the designation of the terminal die state and also pointed out the feeder finger gouges thought the O of "OF", and then Leroy created 3 varieties including one that no one has seen I did not like it. Well last night I got home and a...

1878 S VAM 17 Somthing Progression Photos

I picked the 2 coins below 2 days ago, more because of the deep gouge and heavier die scratch's than the later one. They both are VAM 17's kind of both have no denticles on the reverse are all left. The earlier one has something right on the neck line.

Very Interesting die progression!

Re: 1878 P VAM-134 EDS No Polishing lines

The seller had bought a lot of coins from a guy that ...was less than honest over the years. The guy was sold some key dates as Unc and MS coins that where AU wiped and crap like that. The guy sent in what he thought was the Best stuff, so the ones that did grade where ………. well not treated well! He...

Re: 1878 P VAM-134 EDS No Polishing lines

This one has No polishing and looks more like a DMPL than the PL designation given. It is graded MS-62 PL, and in hand looks way better than the grade.

1878 P VAM-134 EDS No Polishing lines

Well I bought this coin not really knowing what it was, but it looked a bit nicer than the grade given it. As it turns out the seller sent in 20 coins and 17 body bagged, and I think the graders may have made him pay for that error. Anyway this coin has fields that clearly reflect 10 inches or more ...

Really Broken 1921 D Help Please

Below is a 1921 D that I had VAM 1P3 in my flip. I cant Find VAM-1p3 in the VAM Listings. At first glance the reverse looks like a VAM 19 a or somewhere in the progression, it's not. I have run thought the die crack guilds and cant find this one. Big OB pick up point is s break running thought the S...
