Re: "Peace Dollar" Newp

Denticles on an obverse entitled "PEACE" Dollar with reverse denticles around a singular "UNITED STATE OF MERRIMENT". Vintage design is attractive. Interesting and odd. Nice location for that required connotation "COPY". Thanks for sharing !

Re: 1921 3R3?

Nice find on the 1921 VAM 3R3. The rim across from RIC may have had a rim burr that detached or been partially filled with debris in the die . My 3R3 does not show any issue at this spot on the rim. Value on this coin points toward ANACS as the best choice for grading service. IMO

Looks like a tough one to attribute. Take a look at VAM 2B and VAM 1BB

Re: 1889-O rotate on it

Looks like 75 degrees CW with your alignment. If the obverse is aligned properly with the date horizontal, the rotation will be very close to 90 degrees CW. I have a 1889 O in VF+ with a full 90 degree CW rotated reverse.
Nice pick Tom !

Re: New Member with a Possible New VAM - 1922-P Peace Dollar - Extra Olive Branch?

You're welcome. Clashed dies are the specialty of Jason Cuvelier. Check out the spectacular clashed dies on the 1983 P Kennedy Half $ under "Site News" and "Top 25 Clashed Dies". It just so happens, I found several 1983 P Kennedy Half $ clashed die specimens searching bank rolls about twenty years a...

Thanks everyone, been collecting 40 years myself. I have never seen a die clash overrun <over> one ray detail and then subduct <under> the next ray a few millimeters apart as these do.

Check the listing of the collar clash 1922-P Collar clashes occur when hammer die is vertically misaligned (tilted) and contacts the top edge of the collar die. The collar die is notched at regular intervals in order to form reeded edge. A collar clash transfers the notched edge impression onto the...
