Re: If it's to good to be true, it probably isn't.

Give me a little time and I will change my magnification to 30x, and take a couple shot of the LTF.

Need help with a 1880-O

Last one for the weekend. I have a 1880-O that I haven't had much luck attributing. She has a long die scratch in the hair above the eye and first hair curl and a smaller down and to the left at the edge of the forehead and the hair line. What really caught my eye was heavy file/polishing marks in t...

Re: New 1921-D VAM?????

I took a quick look at the crack guide and the closest thing i could find is VAM-1CP, but that's not it.
Can you take a good, clear close up of the scribbling area of the right leg.

Thank you gentlemen for taking a look. Sorry about that; I somehow started two post for the same coin and I can't delete it since I reply to the post with more images. If it turns out to be one to send to Leroy; I will have better pictures taken for the page. It's ticks me off that some knuckle head...

If it's to good to be true, it probably isn't.

Today, I have a 1878-P R/79 I Haven't been able to tracked her down You will probably agree that the first thing I noticed was the G clash and I had to buy it so, I could examine her closer. I don't think there is letter transfer. also, this is a detailed coin, some knuckle head took a knife to her....

Your photo is a little blurry. It might be PMD Post Mint Damage.
Either way it is not enough for a new variety.

Re: 1880-S New Vam?

What you are seeing is a flat strike, I believe. I know I am going to mess this up, but I will try. I am not 100% about this, but when the obverse (hammer die) came down and hit the planchet. The pressure on the press was not set correct for the metal to flow. Hopefully someone else will answer the ...

Re: 1880-S New Vam?

Welcome aboard Carnellrules I believe you research it correctly and that it is a VAM-98. The TLI you see is a wire strike through. TLI are raised above the surface.

Re: Back from LVA - 2 New Peace Dollar VAMs, 2 Revisions and 1 Kill (Descriptions and Plate Photos added)

Nice work Ray.
Leroy takes awhile, but he always comes through.

I normally leave somethings out, so Leroy has something to find that I did not list.
Like gouges if there are more then one in an area; I only list one, and see what he says.

Again, congratulations.
