is it considered still to be a valid /good study version?
It sure is.....
Sadly,I currently do not have one.
The ASV of 1901 is still an excellent Bible for study. Star Bible Publishers in Texas publishes it, and you can also get it online from youversion.com.
I still use the ASV 1901 along with the KJV.
I like the ASV 1901. I have one that was printed in 1921. The cover was falling off, but because the pages are not in that good of shape, I decided not to have it recovered. I fixed it with some black duct tape instead.
Star Publishers is currently out of complete ASV Bibles. They have some NT's, but I want the complete Bible. I thought they were going to print more this spring, but they have not done so. Bummer.
I made a mistake. My ASV was printed in 1929 and not 1921. I did download the version for e-sword.
While the large church of my teen years used the Scofield KJV1769 revision, it housed the larget ifb seminary. There, many used the ASV1901 since it was a far more accurate translation from the Greek. It had some glaringly poor translations/choices (all man-made attempts fail at some point or other) II Tim 3:16 was really bad.
Still have mine from college and seminary . . along with notes I wrote in the margin. I MUCH prefer it to the NASB (the 1901 revised for the worse) and have it for easy reference.
