Back From Leroy - New 1922-D Vam 2"o"3

Leroy's comment on the new VAM 2"o"3, "Quite a lot and severe die breaks!". Thanks to all who who saw my (1922 D VAM 2o2 VLDS 5/21/20) post and encouraged me to send it to Leroy.

A 1B7 and a 1B3 that's unreal, a 1921 VAM 44 can't be to far away for you.

Congrats. I picked one last year that the dealer mistakenly labeled as an 1878 7 TF.
Wow, I know math is hard for a lot of people and the number 8 is a reach for others but............
You can read more about this find in my July 1, 1999 post Flip the Flip.

I was kinda shocked when i saw how big the break was from the t. I have had a few of these but not like that!
I was too. So you would agree with the consensus to send it to Leroy?

Re: 1922 D VAM 2O2 VLDS

Thanks guys. I will send it to Leroy when he is ready to start receiving coins again. Roger I didn't know that about Larry Brigg's. It would be great if his influence gives VAM's a boost in the Cherry Pickers Guide. Actually, Larry is listed as editor, not co-author, but that's a pretty influential...

I say send it to LVA .. The metal displacement is strong . IT is a break not a crack .
Nice coin . I would not left it behind , good pick ..
Now I feel better. Thanks for confirming my feelings about the coin. The dealer knew he had something special and I had to ante up a bit to bring it home.

1922 D VAM 2O2 VLDS

I picked up This 1922 D VAM 2O2 at a B&M today. It has an unlisted die break from the R in Liberty to the rim, Has anyone else seen one of these? Is it worth a future trip to Sidney? All comments welcomed.

Show us your LVA fails

Here is one of mine. In Leroy's return letter he said he would have to see another one. I had seen one in a junk bucket a week after I found this one, but passed on it. I thought better of it and went back to buy it. Of course when I returned it is was gone. :(

Help please with an 1878 7TF

Due to the condition of the coin and my use of a digital microscope the pictures are not great. The coin may be from the 140 series as it has a notched one in the date and what appears to be a partially open o in God and a full r in Trust. What does stand out is the dot in front of Liberty's eye. An...
