Re: USPS strikes again!!!

The postal service can be brutal at times, however, I have to say that several years of buying and selling coins I've not had any trouble except once when the idiot seller just stuck the Morgan in a white letter envelope which may have got lost in the machine that sorts envelopes. When I sell I alwa...

Re: I find myself on occasion drifting more and more to the dreaded.....Darkside

There are too many awesome VAMs in the Peace dollars to ignore them. Pick them up while decently priced as I believe they will continue to have a following as well as a growing number of interested Vammers.

Re: Hello VAMWORLD! and THANK YOU for letting me join!

Welcome, Kevin, to the madness of VAMs. $20 each for a bunch of Morgans was a great buy. Feel free to post and there is so much expertise and just great people on this site you will be amazed. The learning curve is big so don't get discouraged as you will learn as you go along. Now that you are reti...

Re: What is the best way to buy Morgans

Re: LITTLE FLORENCE OREGON COAST COIN SHOW

I've been to this show so agree with Scott it is worth your time. Lot of nice people and not much knowledge about VAMs so good for pickin'. I can't make it this year as I have a reunion to go to on Saturday up north.
