Re: Hub Doubling?

All MD. Notice how it "steals" metal from the devices and is flat and shelf-life. Along with the lack of other typical indicators like corner notching.

Re: AOH 1882-O/S VAM-5 EDS in NGC AU... Details >.<

It's pretty obvious, even from those pics, why they killed it. "Cleaned" is a catchall term not solely specific to hairlines ;) Still a nice pick if it was a cherry tho for sure..

Re: Overlapping reeds?

Heres a crude thing I just did with a pic I had on hand. Hope this helps you to visualize how to spot an O.R. patch until you can get one in-hand. The thicker blue lines to the sides are indicating the normal reeds while the thinner blue lines indicate the overlap area...

Re: Overlapping reeds?

I'm not seeing any overlapping reeds in any of those pics. They are a bit dark though.. Once you see an OR patch in-hand it's an "ah ha" moment and you they're typically easy to tell going forward. Forget about inside the recessed areas, it's the raised parts of the reeds that gets all funky and cho...

Re: 1890p... VAM 6 ??

Interesting toning!! Yeah. A toning pattern like this, from my experience, is due to being in an album untouched for a while with the slide partially off of that specific hole. I've only seen single-sided ones though. If that's the case with this one, both slides must have not been fully pushed in ...

Re: 1890p... VAM 6 ??

Bump. Any thoughts on this being a v6 guys? fogie looks like you have a 90p v6 in xf45. Can you check yours against my pics above, comparing the doubling of the 0 and other secondary pickups like all the thick die scratches in LIBERTY, especially the diagonal one in top left of T.. And for the rever...

Saawwwwweeeeet! I still have that Larry Briggs signed 1A3 (I think in 63) cuz I just haven't had the heart to just let it go to some random collector that isnt a VAMbuddy. Such a bad business mindset. Damn you cool VAMs, damn you! :lol: 😎

I think the surprise is because I was at the show where he submitted them and I'm just now getting them. Thing is everything goes to the office first for processing. I NEVER hand carry customer coins back from a show. So I guess the Order Details page for my order that says, Expected Ship Date: 2/5...

Re: A little help with an 80-S please.

Doesn't quite look like what the 0 of v11 looks like. If it's not some kind of polishing or something else inside that 0, I've heard theres a theory that a majority (or maybe just many) of 80s obverses are actually 80/79 overdates that were either well polished so nothing shows from the first striki...

1890p... VAM 6 ??

Does this look like a v6 to you guys? Went up and down the list a few times and v6 is the only maybe match. Unfortunately though, the v6 is a near-zombie page with only a pic of the 0 doubling.. If we can confidently confirm we can get the page looking good with some of these pics as well as having ...
