1921-P VAM 64 I think -- (but it's not)

Post by DHalladay » Sun Feb 02, 2020 5:36 pm

Mitch pointed me at VAM 64 as a likely suspect -- and after reading the verbal description of its various doubling and tripling I think he's right. I'd very much appreciate hearing from anyone who has an attributed coin and can confirm his suspicion. I just wish there were more photos of different PUPs on the page, because none of what I found on this coin is on the page, starting with a dot in the eye that ought to be a key PUP if this is a VAM 64. The profile is also doubled:

There are several nice lines in the cap recess and around the cotton bolls:

And there's this one nice line in the hair below the cap:

The left stars are nicely tripled:

The scribbles aren't a lot of help, because there are only fragments on this LDS coin:

There are some nice lines inside both wings, and there are still a few scribbles inside the left wing:

It doesn't match my VSS V-64.
Let me know if you would like me to mail it to you.

Yes Lee. I would very much like to see your coin and photograph it.

That eliminates V64
So try the other 3 and if no send to messydesk since it's already slabbed
