George Mallis. Leroy Van Allen is still to this day adding different VAM numbers to the known varieties even though the book hasn't been updated since and he is the authority on Morgan and Peace Dollars. Very few VAMs have characteristics which are so obvious they can be seen with the naked eye. The overwhelming majority are identified through minute doubling of features or die damage-related markers.

So, in most cases, attributing a VAM is a process requiring a loupe with minimum 15x magnification. It should be noted that in most cases, die cracks and clashing artifacts are not of themselves sufficient to warrant VAM designation, although they can qualify as a subvariety - for instance, if VAM-1 is identified, a clashed version of the same coin can be designated VAM-1A. Die cracks abound on Morgan Dollars. If a crack becomes strong enough to be classified as a break where the width of the crack becomes a measurable factorin many cases it can become the primary identifying feature of an assigned VAM.

As time goes by, though, these are being identified as die states of another known VAM, and incorporated as subvarieties. There are certain areas which should be starting points for any attribution process. All of these details will not be present on every coin, but one or more of them will almost certainly figure into a successful attribution of any Morgan.

Sometimes, but not always, these individual features are strong enough to be the primary attribute of a variety. Count the number of denticles, starting at the point of the neck, to the left of the lower serif of the Furthermore, is the date level with the denticles all digits the same distance from them?

Are any digits individually raised or lowered? Many Morgans demonstrate doubling of one feature or another. This doubling can be in any direction. On the obverse, look for doubling:. Morgan dies were polished before and during their use.

Sometimes, overpolishing caused features to become weaker, or visible polishing lines were created. Some classic locations for these:. Sometimes a planchet fails to get fed into the press, and the two dies come into contact.VAM was a Mexican automaker from to The original organization, a distributor and license manufacturer for Willys-Overland and AMC vehicles, became government controlled in with American Motors Corporation AMC holding a minority interest.

The earlys collapse of the Mexican economy forced a sale of the Mexican government's interest in VAM to Renaultwhich shut down the firm in the late s.

The Mexican government maintains the rights to the VAM name and brand to this day. Beginning in the company produced several Renault models as VAM vehicles.

Financial problems during a collapse of the Mexican economy recession and devaluation of the Mexican pesobeginning in forced the eventual sale of the Mexican government's interest in the company to Renault.

Renault then closed VAM down. From its initial inception as Willys Mexicana in the late s the company manufactured Jeeps under license and AMC vehicles after Most VAM cars mimicked domestic U.

In the sixties, VAM produced the Rambler American in 2- and 4-door and wagon versions plus a limited single-year hardtop imodel in two generationsa version of the AMC Rebel called the "Rambler Classic" in 2-door hardtop and 4-door sedan versions and the AMC Javelin.

Some VAM models mixed and matched body components from U. Examples of Mexican-only cars include a two-door "Hornet" with a Gremlin front clip. Many of these carried slightly different engines, all-original interiors, and different model and designation names than their counterparts in the United States and Canada, but were all based on U.

Most bodies used the same year parts as U. VAM produced one original body not available in the U. The Lerma was a "cut and weld" built body. This idea was presented to AMC, but the labor cost to produce the car using the "cut and weld" method would have been cost prohibitive in the U. Moreover, VAM added unique engineering features to deal with low octane fuel and high altitudes. AMC was impressed by the project, which eventually developed into the 4.

VAM Mantra Chanting - Swadhisthana ( SACRAL CHAKRA ) - full version

Nash George W. Romney Helene Rother Dick Teague.Van Allen and A. George Mallis. These two researchers noticed differences between coins produced in the same year and at the same mint. They began to photograph and catalog these differences to identify the different die varieties in the Morgan and Peace silver dollar series.

Some of these differences can be seen without magnification.


Other ones are so small you need a high-powered loupe or microscope to see it. It is now common language among coin collectors that people talk about having found a "VAM" when the variety they are referring to has not been assigned a VAM Number. The research has been so thorough and intense that numismatists are now able to match specific coin dies used to produce various coins.

They have discovered that sometimes a particular coin die was used on the obverse and one or more coin dies were used to produce the reverse. This has led to an intense investigation on both sides of the coin to determine the exact die peers used to produce the coin. The United States Mint creates coins by striking a planchet between two hard metal coin dies. Due to the tremendous pressure and stress on the coin dies from each strike, the coin dies have a limited working life.

Therefore, each mint facility uses multiple coin dies every year to produce the coins. Die varieties can happen at two different times during the minting process.

The first opportunity for a die variety is during the production process of the coin die. The coin hub is used to produce a coin die that is a mirror image of the coin design. Although the United States Mint strives to produce every coin perfectly, some minor errors or imperfections occur. These can be slight differences in the design or imperfections on the coin die itself. The second opportunity to produce a die variety is during the maintenance of the coin die. Mint workers will try to prolong the life of the coin die by removing the error or damage through tooling or polishing the die before it is returned to production.

Unfortunately, this process will lead to slight variations in the coin die. Some of them are pronounced and visible to the naked eye. Others are only identifiable under magnification. To do this, they created a cataloging system for each date and mintmark combination. Each die variety is numbered sequentially as coin collectors and researchers discover it. As coin collectors and researchers discover more die varieties, the authors increase the catalog sequentially.

However, it may later be discovered that VAM-1 may actually be a variation in the die variety. In that case, it will remain its original VAM designation. You may also notice that letters are added to the end of the VAM designation to indicate various die states.

For example, a VAM may have been created in the production of the coin die which resulted in it being this discovered and cataloged as VAM Subsequently, a mint employee may have removed the die to perform maintenance on it and added another unique identifier to it.

The authors with then catalog this die variety as VAM-5A for that particular year and mintmark combination. The sequencing of letters only indicates the order in which they were discovered.Copyright AcronymFinder.

Who is MeshedVR? MeshedVR is a small indie developer that enjoys advancing state-of-the-art technology in the upcoming field of VR. Our 1st project has focused on advancing character simulation, and a natural outlet of that work is a VR sex simulator! Our Patreon will therefore be dedicated to creating adult VR games utilizing the technology that we have developed and to continue to push the cutting-edge of what is possible to bring you the most realistic sex simulator possible.

Virt-a-Mate VaM for short is our first sex simulator project designed to meet that goal. Oculus Quest can work if used with Oculus Link cable and system. VaM was built for VR, but can also run in a desktop mode. VaM has steep PC requirements due to nature of extensive body physics system and simulated hair and clothing systems.

Recommended: Intel iXXX series or higher 3. In many cases today, this favors Intel CPUs. VaM hair and cloth simulation also tend to run better on Nvidia GPUs at this time due to how they seem to handle computer shaders more efficiently. A goal of the 2. X version of VaM it to be optimized for a broader range of hardware and offer performance scaling features to enable use on lower-end hardware. Virt-A-Mate is our first project.The health and safety of SVS members and constituents, and the patients for whom they provide care, has been, and remains, our 1 concern.
