Re: 1878-S Attribution Help Needed

Surprised the VAM Page doesn't have any full coin pictures. Then again Im not. Some are willing to share and help and others want to hold the secretes. I spent years populating the 78S pages. I barely come on here once or twice a week, if that. tiny

A Master work on coinage is a book called From Mine to Mint. A must read for the Silver Dollar Collector. Read it twice. With a highlighter marker.

Re: 78s with weird wings

V 55 & 75 share the same reverse. 75 would have a chip above cotton leaves in cap. Full coin pictures dont show well. 55 has a die chip below jaw line in hair curl. No pictures clearly show either. Close up pictures are very nice. Just doesn't show money shots. 55 is more likely. Only 150 VAMs to me...

Re: 78-Ss picks

Im not sure. Never seen it before. I did find it very interesting. Reverse used on V55 & 75. Have many of both and never recall seeing it. Other might have, I have not.

Re: 1878 s

The Long Knock Reverse is the B1 and the second reverse was the B2 and had a Short Knock on the center arrow. Any letter after B2 would be a specific reverse other than what Leroy considered a plain Jane B2. Others with more knowledge of the subject can answer your question about dies. B2W had a lon...

Try B2W Reverse. The pictures dont show well But I think the Obverse die chip is a give away for it.

Those plates Rock and VAM !! Nice ride. The " E " Bodies have quite a following. New and old. A great OT post would be rides. Bikes or cars.

Re: 1878 series

Yes, Crabman, Larry has been the man for rare VAMS. Very good to work with. I own a few coins that slid across his desk to mine. Deeply sorry about Mrs. Ekins. A loss many cant ever fully understand without experiencing it. I'm 30 years married to a woman who puts up with my VAMs and shows interest ...
