Re: 1886-S - VAM 2 or 4 or...

It looks more like VAM 4 to me. It doesn't look like the outside/top right or outside/bottom left of the S have enough 'stuff' going on to be VAM 2.

Re: 1880-O VAM 6 Spike Ear Overdate or ?

Whatever is coming out of the top of the 2nd 8 is much, much too far right to be a VAM 6/6A. My best guess looking at a photo is it is a small strike-through or a nick of some kind.

Re: General question

But keep in mind that the ratings were guesses when they were first assigned, and have not been updated since. VAMs that were thought to be rare at the time may, with the passage of time, have proven to be much more common.

In other words, do not take them as gospel.

Re: Morgan 1921-P VAM-65 = VAM-87 =VAM-85

Great detective work.
LVA's 2 plate photos on the VAM 85 attribution page sure seem to match his plate photos for VAM 87, but without the VAM 85 discovery coin we're stuck. Does anyone know Mr. Roberts?

1880-P VAM 9 pics

New acquisition. Maybe mine is a real late die state example, but I was surprised to see that none of these features are described on the attribution page. This chunk under Liberty's jaw shows up on the attribution page LFCP, but looks way more impressive in its own closeup: 38936933 jaw chunk.jpg T...

Re: ANA graded coin set flowing hair!

Your coins are regarded as being in ANACS holders, so there will be no problem with eBay.

Re: PayPal changes for gold sales...

I'm amazed. I'm also curious as heck to know the back story about why eBay is making this (in my opinion) extreme change – one that could/will wipe out many thousands of listings.

Re: 1889O Rotated Reverse 68 degrees to right

Welcome aboard Larry! Your images show more desk than they do coin: can you try again but get a lot closer? It would be impossible to determine a VAM with such small and blurry images -- although VAMs 1 and 3 are known with rotation amounts as large as your coin has. I would suggest you start invest...

Uh oh.
It looks like dreams have been crushed... and this time not by JR.

Polishing lines below In and under the eagle's beak are a match to an EDS of 45, plus the little spike behind the eagle's neck.

VERY nice 101.
No raised lines coming out of Liberty's lower hair into her neck.
