Re: 79-O... Wickedly Overpolished Rev ...HELP... Dare I say the L-word?

I can't make out any recognizable date doubling from those pics. I'm not that good with this series :( Is the top of the bottom bar of the 1 doubled and the bottom of the 7? Hopefully i can learn alongside you on this one :) Per the denticles: no i mean along the rim where it looks like they got sli...

Re: 79-O... Wickedly Overpolished Rev ...HELP... Dare I say the L-word?

Sure, I'll get you a date shot. Thanks for help. 79o is one of the weakest dates for me to attribute cuz I hardly ever VAM them aside looking for the v4/28 mint mark. As for your grease comment, are you saying you think the "stomped on" nature of this reverse is due to a light smattering of grease ...

Re: 79-O... Wickedly Overpolished Rev ...HELP... Dare I say the L-word?

Can i see the date? I'll try to help figure out what the base is... Weird that the stars and letters are also affected in places. Could have been right after a grease job? Edit: the more I look at how early in life the die looks... I'm going grease/schmutz, including the blob in the wreath. Nice den...

Re: 1922-P VAM 2BG

I sent in one for a double collar clash he labeled 2FG last year.

I wonder why the Peace series was so prone to this?

Re: Do you suffer from VAM Hypocorism?

Impaled Eagle. The coin that keeps coming back like a bad cold... It does? When it first surfaced a while back after 40+ years in the dark, it was more like Brigadoon, and being a coin pictured in the VAM book that shouldn't be there, VAM collectors find it a heck or a lot more desirable than a bad...

Re: Scary new twist in Chinese counterfeits world....

@TheYokel I agree with your diagnosis of those coins. I really like the experiment you are doing. I thought I was the only desert dweller doing stuff like that. It is a beautiful golden color though. Thanks!🐍 I keep custom silver art figurines in there on shelves so that I can open it and look at t...

Re: Scary new twist in Chinese counterfeits world....

You can tell lineage from toning patterns when you look at enough. That 63+ is album toned from a cardboard page. Dansco or Whitman most likely. You can even see the finger print in the center where they pressed it into the album. The stripe on the reverse is pretty common from coins stored with rub...

Re: Any Idea about this HUGE drop in gold today?

This is a good post. Have you ever checked to find out how much of your 401 K you own if things go south . It would depend on how it's invested, I guess. Firms are branching out into art portfolios and physical collectibles more and more these days. So there are definitely instances where there are...

Re: Any Idea about this HUGE drop in gold today?

Not to enter this arena with both feet, but the artificially inflated stock market will come crashing down again at point, then our shiny metal disks will be cool again. There are 13,000,000 households in the United States that make $1,000,000 or more anually. If they withhold 5% pretax for a 401 a...

Re: Help with 1879-S rev. 78

I picked this 1879-S and from these pics i could only narrow down to partially broken r from TRUST guide that means VAM 9 or 35, 39, 42, 77 and 77a and seems to be also an open 9 but not really sure about this.

Re: 1921-P honest eye?

I see a little bit of crud spotting, and a die-polsihed front of eye (somewhat common) but nothing from that tiny area zoom pic is screaming at me that the entire coin is has been cleaned. Let's get to the good stuff though... Please explain "Experimenting with this new nano-silver technology" :P T...

Because "art toned" is something entirely different than the Chinese now trying to selectively replicate the toning from TV's on their fake coins in fake slabs with correct cert#'s and isn't what this revelation is about.

I'm seeing it at 1663, which is up. Yesterday it closed at 1645ish, right? The last few days it's been, what, a $20 +/- jump every day?
He's referring to 4pm Pacific time when the NY Globex opened and gold momentarily dropped to $1450 for all of 5 minutes before recovering and passing it's mark.
