Re: Help with 88-O & 23-S

are you sure that's a 23s, and not a 23d? 1923 D VAM 1'O' Once upon a time , I could not Vam a circ 1921 with an obvious obverse die gouge at BU. However, it did dawn on me that I had seen this same die gouge on a 1921 S VAM 6A (one day). Turned out the S mint mark was invisible (no trace) and was ...

Re: 1900-S VAM-29 Reed Clash Marks at Jaw-Neck Line?

Collar clashes result from accidental contact by the collar die onto the die face. Mishaps may occur from misaligned dies, dropped collar die, broken shards of collar die, etc. Contact marks from the reeded edge of another coin is just PMD.

Re: 1923-P VAM 1AD

Great photo on those rim cuds under the date. The double rim above B E R was probably caused by a slightly misaligned obverse die. Sweet purchase Tom ! 8-)

Very nice long planchet crack ! VAM 3X exhibits a prominent displaced field break at eagle's left wing tip in late die stage.

@RogerRock So it's a B3 rev 3 hills branch touching foot. I'm starting at 1W. Thanks. Peace Roy
Perhaps you made a typo with that (unlisted) B3 reverse comment. In fact, your coin displays the B2 reverse with three mountain peaks and attached olive branch.

Re: 1922-D Peace need help

Start with the reverse design type on your coin B1 or B2 ?? This will narrow the search ! Look for obvious pick up points ! Search listings for similar descriptions. Study the difference between true die doubling and strike doubling !!!! Many Peace Dollars exhibit strike doubling on the date, letter...
