Re: Database of 'stolen' or missing coins?

taking pictures of our coins makes identification easier. contact marks, toning, ,strike, lustre, v/variety number . if the fbi can identify fingerprints, coins ought to be easier.

Re: 1899-O Very interesting coin! Need Help

we see coins cut with pen knives frequently. it pushes the metal up and then it gets flattened down with circulation, leaving the appearance of a die gouge, or die break. i see them on indian cents too.

Re: 1889-P VAM-23A Reverse Die Update

there is another 1889o reverse die that shows lack of proper hardening. it is possible that these were all made at the same time. just as i suspect all of the 1972 p, d and s 1c doubled dies were made at the same time. and a number of 1878 p, s, and cc dies were made at the same time.
