Hi folks.

I've been going through the Vamworld archives and there aren't too much talk about die cracks and breaks on the 84-O.

I found a 1884 O with all sorts of die cracks on it - on the obverse and reverse.

The die crack usually isn't a factor unless there is a field break and/or surface displacement. The 1921-D is an exception as these dies were overused to a point they literally disintegrated. A notable non-21 die crack is the 88-O scarface.

In order to assist with this 84-O we will need to see pics of the entire obv/rev.
So many coins, so little time ...

Ok, these should be a lot better. High resolution photos taken with a 100mm Macro lens. I don't have a good enough eye yet to attribute the mint mark. The best I can do is say that it is a far date (I think).

VAM-29A. Look at the 6th left star. Nice pick, buddy.
The best thing about a bicycle is that it uses no gasoline, therefore the chance of fiery death is greatly reduced.

Ah thanks. I was too busy looking at the other crack patterns to notice the 6th star chip. Thanks again Dave!
