Is it that common for the denticles too?
Strike doubling is especially common on peripheral devices.

Re: VAM kills/revisions 10/5/2020

Great work David !! Duplicate VAM listings need to be eliminated. Revisions add important die markers for improved die stage identification.

Re: 1921-D VAM 1J

Nice EDS VAM 1J Tom. Very tough to find in LDS with retained cud above ED. I have found only one LDS VAM 1J with both die break A and retained cud above ED - ANACS 1921 D VAM 1J AU 55 Polished.

Re: Saw this in the box yesterday; shareworthy

Very tough planchet error type in silver dollars !! Thanks for sharing.. I have never seen a tapered planchet Morgan dollar. ANACS graded a 1922 Peace dollar with a tapered planchet error (noted on slab) AU 58 for me about ten years ago. My specimen exhibits missing metal divot on reverse at 8:00 - ...

Re: 1896p morgan struck thur string

A strike-thru error is caused by foreign material (sometimes string) between the die face and planchet when the coin is struck. This debris (string) will always leave a depressed area on the coin. The ends of the string depression often display frayed, spread out fiber impressions. Striking errors a...

Re: New Grading Contest – Win a 1878 SFLN

Your previous contest was completely dishonest when you changed your grading "rule" after the coin was returned from TPG !! How many times are you gonna try to pull a similar ruse of bait and switch?
Reputation is everything in the coin business, numismatics, and VAMWorld.

Re: 1883 O/O VAM 4 Grump with PCGS Questionable Color

One of the big misconceptions with toning is the whole AT/NT thing. Thats not really how it works. Its more along the lines of Market Acceptable and Not-Market Acceptable. Toning can develop naturally but if it has a look that a particular grader and/or grading service doesn't like/want in their ho...
