Re: Found an 1898-O VAM-11A in my collection

Cheers bud, thank you for the welcome, as you can see from the picture, the angle is just shy of 15 degrees :( , would it have made for a new VAM had it reached 15?

Hey all, looking for a second opinion on this 1888-O, I believe it could be the top 100 VAM-9 but there are a few bits that don't add up, my example doesn't have polishing lines in "LIBERTY" but shows north/south polishing lines on the reverse fields EDIT: Looking at the full coin pic on VAM-9 it do...

Found an 1898-O VAM-11A in my collection

Hey guys, had this coin just over a week now, I put all of my Morgan's in a lighthouse slab apart from the duplicate dates.

Re: 1897P NEW DIE PAIR

Re: 1897P NEW DIE PAIR

@lj@ljs123 They should change the title to include "Bearded Eagle" since it says the 1 can be invisible, easy identifiable that way and sounds way cooler!
