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.

Thanks, guys. Only sad part about this is that they both will get a details grade. So many of the Peace Dollars I see have been ruined by prior owners trying to "improve" their appearance. The 26S was in a bezel when I found it and had been shined up as a piece of jewelry. Such a shame...

?????

The only feature of 1H was the curved scratch between the last ray and the rim and the scratches at OF. When looking at the pics of 1H it was clear that it had the features of 1B1 were there as well, and was a duplicate listing.

Not sure what you meant about "crap info" or "no LVA no pics." The original 1H listing with pics is still there, but perhaps the pictures should be added the 1B1 page under the notes section to flesh it out. Maybe @PacificWR can copy them over? I would do it, but I still haven't figured out page editing on this new set-up.

Not sure what all the beef is about but, I added the plate photos from VAM-1H to VAM-1B1 and added a link to VAM-1H. Let me know if any of the other photos from VAM-1H need to be added to VAM-1B1.

WTG Ray - Beveled areas and die polish in excess can be difficult to spot unless coin is untoned and AU .
Gentle spanking should be received as a learning experience and appreciated. :lol:

Good job! As you have discovered, it is much harder to get a listing killed than to have one made.
I believe that I have seen the 1924S & 1926S before. If I can't find the 1926S in my inventory then I will take you up on examining your DC, thanks.
