Positive Return from LEROY - 7 for 8

Post by RogerRock » Sat Nov 28, 2020 1:16 am

November 5 2020

1921 P VAM 8B EDS Revised " Unlisted die crack down from nose to in front of lips and chin, then over to second left star with displaced field break at lips. No die crack and break yet at UM."

1921 P New VAM 1AR2 "Has unlisted die crack thru OF over thru wing & down to right wreath top with displaced field break at OF."

1921 P New VAM 68 B "Has unlisted die crack from Liberty head nose down to fourth left star with displaced field break. Also, on obverse die crack across neck down thru 2 to denticles with unlisted displaced field break at 92. Reverse has die crack at tops of ATES OF with unlisted displaced field break at ATES. Beveled field above OF."

1921 P New VAM 3Y2 "Has die breaks at wing tip & ES listed & pictured in 2004 VAM Supplement as 3Y. Actually, should have been 3Y2 since is later die state of scribbles at leg. So , changed description to VAM 3Y2 to include retained cud at eagle's right wing tip, die break ES, & unlisted displaced field breaks at STATES plus UNITED. Slightly beveled field above OF."

1921 P VAM 3AN2 Revised "Has scribbles of 3AN & listed die break at eagle's right wing tip of 3AN2. Also has unlisted die crack on obverse from cotton leaves tops over thru wheat leaves & grains bottoms out to U with displaced field break below R & front of LIBERTY band."

1923 D VAM 1B2 Revised " VAM 1B1 , listed breaks at reverse rim & O and 1B2 at 1. Unlisted displaced field break at Y right side of LIBERTY.

1924 P VAM 1k1 & 1K2 "Added to 1K1 obverse listing after GOD---and later N of IN , added to 1K2 obverse listing-- on later die state. Will be in 2020 VAM Peace $ Supplement.
Vertical gouges at IN GOD due to feed finger scraping obverse die repeatedly, which continues to strengthen or add gouges there. Can't list every change in gouges which are usually ongoing."

Page updates completed thanks to pacificwr
Supplemental photos added to 1923 D VAM 1B2 Revision in order to show die break progression left of ONE where new rim die breaks connect to field break in retained cud VLDS.
1921 P VAM 8B EDS Revision contains thread to additional photos previously posted on Discussion Forum.

Leroy's letter will be posted later.

Roger, congrats on your new DC's and revisions. The VAM-8B, 3Y2 and 1B2 are something else.

Good Job!
THANKS David ! Hope you surveyed the 1923 D VAM 1B2 VLDS photos posted on the Page. That new rim die break connecting with the field break left of ONE is the primary reason for my submission. The displaced field break right of Y (LIBERTY) was just a side note. I was hoping to achieve a 1B3 retained cud designation on this specimen.

Any comments welcome.

THANKS everyone for your comments. Especially thankful for technical support from Wayne! Glad to contribute some new die stages.

This submission shared several similar PUPs that are worth noting:

A beveled field above OF shows on 1921 P VAM 8B EDS (Revised) VAM 68B LDS VAM 1AR2 VAM 3Y2 LDS
Die crack from nose to star with displaced field breaks 1921 P VAM 8B EDS (Revised) VAM 68B LDS

1921 P VAM 3AN2 (Revision) with large displaced field break from cap to UR is preceded by my two 1921 P DCs VAM 3DJ2 and 3DV2 which also display large displaced field breaks from cap to UR
