I have been following and lurking and sticking my head up, out of the sand a few times and see ALL these second guessing, probabilities, possibilities, etc, I would like to throw some things, already posted out there, 1, an EDS, 2, A previously unknown reverse(state),3, a possible repaired re basined die and placed back into production,4, and a new B1 Reverse.
5,Is it possible the die, from this coin was very short lived, 6, Is it possible this die is another die, from the same working hub, that does "match exactly", ( this one is according to my reasoning, highly improbable, as I believe no two dies, from the same working hub, would EVER be an "Exact" duplicate).
Did I leave any other posted opinions out?
I have very much faith in the combined efforts of this site and VW, and the very experienced knowledgeable people who have weighed in to assist in this exciting equation.
However I being probably one of the least experienced, and one of the least knowledable on this 1878 series, I have to wonder how SO MANY people, with all their accomplishments have so many differing opinions, I am going over to Mr LVA'S house, Ohio bound, and sit while He comes up, with what some undoubtably have stated, while some will be far from " One of the Founding Fathers ruling".
I also would add as Bryan has stated, this is a learning process, that the more opinions offered, the better our understanding will be "together"...PS, Bryan Thanks for the site you sent me, you have an amazing "SET"........I am very excited at the possibilities that could come from this, and what ever does, I know I have learned from this topic, This is what I was looking for years ago, the excitment, the hunt, the friends who ALL share the same passions in this arena of this hobby,To come away with a better understanding and Knowledge.......
