Re: I need help, with my 1878 S vam 17?

Thank you Daryl, I was thinking maybe that too, but what about the line in between the bottom of the ribbon and leaf, to the right, of the S mint mark. What about the line running through the hair, above the date. What about the line running up, from the top, on the left wreath leaf, which I just sa...

I need help, with my 1878 S vam 17?

I have a 1878 S ANACSMS63. I see the over polished obverse has a lack of details in the hair and on the eagle's left wing, on the reverse. I see some doubling on the left inside, of the ear. I see the vertical sratch segments, in front of the eye. I see the mark in the bow, like on the vam '17A' I s...

Re: 1904-O VAM-37A

Thanks Kurt,
Here are some pics of my 1904 vam 37A, that I had thought it looked like a slight displacement, between where the two die cracks meet, running down, from under the two denticles.

Is my 1878 S a vam 19A or 19B?

While looking through my 1878 S dates, I saw this 1878 S NGCMS62, that I had labeled as a vam 19A or 19B. I see a very faint neck clash and I think I see the faint N clash below. I see the 'r' in 'trust' has been polished down so the arm is almost completely gone. The 'G' in God is also fully open, ...

Re: I just found another 'funky feather' vam

Thank you John and fogie, I just read, about this vam, having a long continuous acid treated area, between eagle’s right wing and leg extending up between wing and body with smooth top and rough sides. It looks like it goes, almost, to the top of the wing and body. I also read, that 'latter die stat...

Re: I need help with which 'funky feather' vam, my 1878 S is

A BIG THANK YOU everyone, for all of your help. I'm learning and I just found, what I think is a BU 1878 S 'funky feather' vam 49, which I will post photos of. I had them labeled as a 'lava wing' and I just forgot and got confused, after getting them out, after fifteen years. Thank you again, Bert
