1878-P VAM 9 and 9A: which one is tougher?

The SSDC pops are much different – 66 non-details VAM 9s are registered vs. 24 VAM 9As – but is that because of TPG attribution practices or is it reality? I notice, by the way, that VAM 9 has an R rating of 7 and 9A has a rating of 6.

Please share your thoughts and experience.

Re: Searching for scribbles (1921-P)

There's something I forgot to mention... both the left and right obverse stars are at least doubled, with the left stars moreso than the right.

Re: Searching for scribbles (1921-P)

I had hoped, Mitch, that when we migrated to the new platform we might see a kinder, gentler side of you.
But alas, my hopes have been dashed. I'm confronted with the harsh reality that it was just a foolish fantasy.
Thanks buddy. :lol:

Searching for scribbles (1921-P)

Of the 9 new MS63 1921-Ps I recently received (all D2 reverses), this is the only one I can't identify. No cracks on either side is one reason, and the almost total absence of scribbles is another. But there are a few notable fragments of things, as seen in the photos below. I've looked through the ...

Re: Which 1892-S is this?

I've been looking at eBay auction photos and I've found a couple more examples of the broken star.

Congrats on the clearance. I imagine there's a sense of relief that goes with it.

Re: Which 1892-S is this?

Yes there is polishing around the obverse portrait, but not nearly to the extent seen in the photos in my first post. Obverse polishing is most evident at the top of the cap under IB, left at the cap fold under S, behind the lower rear of the cap, and in front of Liberty's lips.

Re: Which 1892-S is this?

After looking at photos of the 50 highest auction price 1892-S at Heritage, I think this is going to be a new VAM and I think the broken star between DOLLAR and AMERICA on the reverse is why. I found a duplicate of my coin, including small obverse and reverse cracks that I hadn't noticed on my coin ...

Re: Which 1892-S is this?

Not sure I see any doubling on the date. If there is some it's awfully minor.

And there's something I hadn't noticed before – the star between AMERICA and DOLLAR looks to have had a chunk break out of the die between two of the points near the rim:

I hope this is big enough.
And guess what... circulated used-to-be PLish coins don't photograph worth a darn.
