Re: Crummy coin arrived today

That would be the one. I have taken a liking to a number of the WOW list coins. I might have to start a set.

Crummy coin arrived today

Re: CHRISTMAS

Didn't get any of the snowy part, just around 10 degrees out when I headed home from work this morning. Merry Christmas to all the VAM folks.

Re: Just in time for Xmas!

I can relate to that. We celebrated "independence day" on July 3, making our last house payment. Congrats, it's a good feeling of accomplishment. I remember the 1st house payment years ago. I think the principal we paid maybe bought a doorknob. Of course, we had the 1st time home buyers "special" in...

Re: Heritage Auction shipping Delay

Seeing that in normal purchase off the bay... the NE snow storm this past week had a serious effect on delivery. Or maybe it's those late mail in ballots? LOL

O.T. kind of.....

In my never ending search of the 1891 o VAMs, I discovered it best not to limit my searches on sites to just "Morgan dollars", or dollars, etc. Many times coins are listed in other categories (especially on E-bay) like antiques or other collectibles, or any other strange number of listings, so I usu...

Re: 1921 P VAM 3FP photos

I am the guilty party for not posting pics of the 3FP discovery. Didn't have a photo set-up working at the time and stashed it in the bank before getting photos done. I still have it in hand, will look to compare it with the other posted VAM.

1921 P VAM 3FP photos

Found my discovery coin while updating my lists on this long weekend.... No photos were ever submitted here, so here's a few showing the clashing. Can't seem to get a decent money shot of the T, but the other photos at least give an overall idea of the clashing on the coin. Will have to did a little...

Re: Tried the rose thorn method

Soaked about 2 days, then lightly used a Q-tip on it. The rose thorn helped take the remaining stubborn goop out of the date area. I should have done a closeup of the date prior to the soak.

Tried the rose thorn method

Recent find was all gummed up, but thought I knew what it was based on date position. A little acetone soak and the gentle use of the thorn exposed this 91o VAM.

Re: 83-o squiggle lines by mm

My first impression is post mint damage, a hit from the edge of another Morgan.
