Re: My 1880 CC toned GSA VAM 6

Thank you Mike and Clayton, I kept looking at my picture of the die scratch inside of eagle's left wing and the picture on the vam 6 page. My picture above, shows only one die scratch and the vam 6 page picture showed a number of them. I took some more pictures at different angles and saw, that I wa...

My 1880 CC toned GSA VAM 6

I had bought this Toned GSA 1880 CC NGCMS65 long before I started learning,
about vams because I liked the unque tone pattern and the GSA slab, then I
had help attributing it as a vam 6.
In other words, I got real lucky.
Here are some pictures, see if you agree, with the vam 6.
Thanks, Bert

Re: Dark Side Dot

I remember finding a 1926 S, with a dot on the leaves, awhile back Ray.
I'll try and find it and see if I can help.

My other 1880 CC and a vam 4

Here is my other 1880 CC, that is a vam 4, it is only an NGCMS61, but I was still pretty excited, when I saw the 9, inside the 0 and of course the 7 inside the 8, that I won awhile back. I especially like the way the 9 looks, inside the 0. I also noticed maybe, a rim cud forming, under the date, in ...

Pretty cool John, I see lightening bolts and stars.
What type of metal is it?

Re: My 1880 CC NGCMS63DPL TOP 100 vam 5

Thank you Tom, Bobby, Kurt, Roger and Chris (..Even if it ends up only being a PL by today's tight standards, she's still in a DPL holder!) Please don't grade this 1880 CC, by my inexperience in taking pictures. I don't have a good camera or stand or the good lighting. I took the obv and rev picture...

My 1880 CC NGCMS63DPL TOP 100 vam 5

I was lucky enough, to have recognized the 8 re-punched over 7, awhile back, on this 1880 cc NGCMS63DPL and won it. In addition to DPL, it is in an old thick NGC slab and has some nice toning. Here are some pictures of the date, below the eagle's right claw and two more pictures of the rev. Enjoy, B...

Re: I need help, with my 1924 Peace dollar

Thank you Dr Close, It seems, that my inexperience has confused things. I thought, that the V shaped clash, on .the top/back, of the eagle was the E clash. I see now, it is the top of the throat and back of the jaw, on the obv, that makes that V shaped clash. I am not sure, where the obv clashed T i...

Re: I need help, with my 1924 Peace dollar

Thank you Tom, I had looked at that vam 1AC, but I didn't see anything, in the description, about maybe a a faint clashed E, on the eagle's top/back, through the ray , or the curved clash, at the bottom tip, of the wing or the die crack running through the eagle's head., the clash running out of the...

I need help, with my 1924 Peace dollar

I have a PCGSMS63 1924 Peace dollar. I think I see a faint clashed E, on the eagle's top/back, through the ray, I see the cured clash, at the bottom tip, of the wing. I see a clash on the eagle's shoulder and a die crack running through the eagle's head. I see a clash running out of the olive leaves...

Re: I need help, with my 1924 Peace dollar

Thank you Dr Close.
I was just trying to understand, where that other 'vertical' die break was,
like in the pictures, on the vam 8C page

I need help, with my 1924 Peace dollar

I have an ungraded 1924 Peace dollar, that I had attributed as a vam 8A. With Tom's help, I finally realized. that mine has only one die break, in the hair. This puzzles me, I thought, that the vam 8B and 8C, didn't have any die breaks, in the hair, which mine has the small die break, but also has t...
