1889 v 23A Maybe????????????????

Post by morganman » Thu Jul 30, 2020 4:28 am

Well if my recent luck could get any better i will know tomorrow or Fri when she arrives
its a ms toner and displays all the PUP'S- Except the I in IN at neck is questionable so it
could be 40A2 but the total roughness at UNUM rim is there No clash rev as well

Makes one shiver a bit LOL Lets hope as i know a deserving member here who could
sure use one to further a set.

Chances are against 23A but fun to fantazize- if it is im a happy older member
Will follow up in any event with result

Good luck and never say never. Even if the best you can do is an image from a flatbed scanner like you used in your recent eBay listings, It should work for an actual VAM 23A. Drag and drop, just like this image file....

IM headed to post office in a couple hrs- lets hope---
Dennis H would return it or i would visit idaho with my cannon LOL

Funny thing= This raw coin is toned both sides in what looks authentic/original
Makes much tougher to attribute from pics. especially the I by neck
MY $50 pick sure has me excited but what are the chances??

Hope reality is not a JR crusher of dreams LOL
This sort of stuff makes it all a blast

I must say= I continue to look at thousands of coins and the work & hrs
involved are many. My point being that being a successful
anything involves work and dedication. After all that things seem
to drop into place more easily with much less resistance

Well here we go- Scott = 1889 23A dream crusher=
So ths toner has all the pup of 23a except no IN at neck I compared it to my ms62
and its confusing/I dont know what i have!!!!!
Not 40A1 or 2 not 19b1/2
OBV Clasing matches to a tee- roughness obv from PLU libs hair all the way to date
Counter clashed exactly like 23A
I searched for similiar 1889 vams withot neck letter transfer - havent found it yet???
Im baffled for now ANY PROS THAT COULD POINT IN RIGHT DIRECTION APPRECIATED

Go back to basics
1- date position
2-date doubling
3- reverse doubling
4- check the ear

Do those 4 things and you'll have your girl

Too bad, I know a few of us that would pay $$$+.
Also, would be nice to have a few more found so more collectors could enjoy.
Keep up the hunt!
