So....there's a 1923 variety called "Ick" .... must be a mess.
thank you RWB, point well taken. I was going to place this photo (screen shot) and this source carefully above. Probably in our conversation somewhere:

WRITERS NOTE HERE; I have edited the above materal. This may not be proper for me to do. It can make the important info out of context. How do you prevent this? Just don't do it, maybe a good answer.

Re: 1923 possible Clash?

The convex radius of a Peace dollar die (obv or rev, hardened die) was 25-inches. Draw an arc with a radius of 25 inches on paper. The outside 1.5-inches along the curve is what the face of a Peace dollar die would look like in cross section. Thanks RogerB and Messydesk, I am sitting at a 48"rd. Ta...

Re: 1923 possible Clash?

That's a feed finger scrape, not a clash mark. Very common. The feed fingers that push finished coins out of the coining chamber sometimes lightly scrape the anvil die (Peace dollar obverse) repetitively enough to impart a shiny spot that grows on the die over time. Some of them have been listed, s...

Re: 1934-S Vam3?

You realize that would require a 180° die rotation, right? Yes JB, I do realize this. I am just looking at that Vast realm of possibilities..... I can visualize this new guy at work during the Great Depression. His first day on the job at the Mint running a press. He is trying to realign and instal...

Re: 1934-S Vam3?

If the seller is getting his pricing info from unsold lots on eBay, I'm sure he'll be happy with his joining them as unsold lots. It does seem the coin has been cleaned, but that's because there's some remaining black gunk on it. The hairlines I'm seeing in the picture aren't really screaming "hars...

Brand new copy of Roger's book would cost you less than $50. Well worth the price to be able to just turn around and grab it off your own shelf.
I have been thinking that very same thing... Spend a little of this stimulation check and maybe benefit this great hobby. Win, win.
Thanks vampicker

Borrow a copy of From Mine to Mint from the ANA Library. That should get you started on US Mint equipment and processes.
The ANA library is closed right now due to virus. I did get it on my to read list for later. They have six copys they lend out. Thanks RogerB

Re: Working Die alignment in a Peace Dollar coin press

I recommend the Newman Numismatic Portal: https://nnp.wustl.edu/ They have a ton of info..It is always being added to as well. Good luck.🐍 Lots of information there! Interesting historical perspectives also. I may just have to get that better Wifi connection I have been putting off. Thanks Longstri...

Working Die alignment in a Peace Dollar coin press

Hello everyone, I am hoping someone here can point me in a direction to learn more about how dies are aligned in the coin press. This new ANA membership JB turned me onto has quite an extensive library access available for the members, it seems. The use of those cylindrical steel rods as dies sure s...

Re: 1934-S Vam3?

I wonder also if their is much of a market for the Peace Vams. We sure do have a bunch of raw ones in my neck of the woods. They seem kind of hard to read. I like those Morgans much better I guess. They are not afraid to tell you their story. How would one solicit the help of Dr. Close? I sure do ap...
