Re: Added info on reeding

Thanks Roger for a great quiz question and answer..."Silver Dollar with a circumferential line of 4.7124-inch." Up to this time, only considered the coin's diagonal.

Re: Morgan 1878 P VAM 22?-?

'Crusher, Thanks for letting me down easy, BUT...The "T" is not what did the biting. It was the dot on the left wreath. Shown on the coin in hand here. This experience has been very educational, hereabouts.

Thanks to 'Crusher and others. Your help is much appreciated. Should have been able to attribute here, (Blush). Followed the C3b reverse with the chip on the wreath (of VAM 222 D) which is on this coin. CURIOUSLY, the 228-4 reverse is listed as having C3a reverse. However, this specimen has the C3b ...
