Re: 1885 Vam 9a?

Please post a picture of the line left of the bow on your coin that is shown with the arrow labeled "bow line" on the VAM 9A page. Bow line pic. Shows a gouge line left of the bow I don't see a match for VAM 9A. Now use the same picture to compare the lines in the bow with those shown on the VAM 9B...

Re: 1921-P VAM 7... gone or changed?

Dennis,
I will email you a copy of LVA's letter to me, now that you have the 1N that I sent to him for this submission.
I will also email you copies of his letters for two 21-P Discovery Coins that you now have.

@messydesk

JB,
As I stated before, I thought that it was a single clashed 9B.
The 9C page says that 9C is the single clashed 9B (same die pair).
So the n & st clash is on the 9B and the single clashed 9C is only an n clash.

My view now is that the coin in this post is a 9C.

Also, the chip next to his bow looks like VAM-9B, not 9A.

Re: 1885 Vam 9a?

Tom, It is clear that his reverse clash line at n doesn't match VAM-9A. I'm sorry that's not what he wanted to hear. He has a great advantage at attribution with the coin in hand. So I was doing my best to help him attribute his coin with the limited information that I have. So I had to look for oth...

Re: 1885 Vam 9a?

You clearly have an issue with me answering your post in a way that casts a doubt on the attribution that you wanted to hear.
Maybe we can get one or more of the professional attributers to join in?
I hope will you believe them.

Re: 1885 Vam 9a?

I believe that it is a single clash version of the VAM-9B. I can not see any letter transfer in your photos. If the n & st transfer occurred on the second clash, then you have a VAM-9. If you do have letter transfer that I can not see, then it would be a VAM-9B. Sorry that it is not a VAM-9A. Or ma...

Nice grab.
You suck!


Mitch,
Would you take another look at this coin? It is not a match to the information on the VAM-9A page.

Sorry Ray,
I don't have enough information to make a match.
Hopefully someone else can be of more help.

Re: Tone removing help

If you have photoshop (or something like it) use it to drop the color out of the coin image. You can try a lot of tricks, but something should let you do it without actually altering the coin. Then you can have it both ways. This is one I dropped the color out of http://www.1881o.com/84236046_61_to...

Tone removing help

I have a coin that is graded in a holder as MS-63. I'm trying to attribute the coin, but toning makes it very hard to see die markers of any kind. I am thinking of removing it from the holder to remove the toning. Because it has been graded as MS, I am hoping to treat it without damaging the coin. A...
