Re: Keep or return 1889-O V-13B

In it's condition it is not worth $99 dollars. Send it back and if everyone who buys from him sends them back maybe it will stop the fraud.

Re: peace

If you want market value use ebay and search for the VAM. Check both the asking (up for sale) and the sold ones. It should give you a good idea of what they are worth. In the search list, mark the sold box in the left column to see the sold ones. Bottom line is that a coin is worth what someone will...

Re: A new look at ‘21-D JOH-3

I often wonder about the JOH-21 & 22. The JOH-22 has more going on than the JOH-21 but both should have a VAM number since all Morgans are VAMs - correct? The JOH coins should be cleared up even if they are only VAM 1. With scribbles, it wouldn't be called VAM 1. Don't use the photos on the VAM 1 p...

I often wonder about the JOH-21 & 22. The JOH-22 has more going on than the JOH-21 but both should have a VAM number since all Morgans are VAMs - correct? I'm going to take some pictures of the 21 & 22 and see if we can identify anything significant to give it a VAM number other than a VAM 1. I noti...

Re: O/T Taxman

The seller doesn't influence anything ebay does regarding taxes. I live in Oregon with no sales tax but when I sell coins the buyer often gets charged sales tax from his state not mine. If your state doesn't charge for coins you need to address it when you see it on the invoice from ebay. Call them ...

Re: USPS question

Remember that, in my experience, the USPS has a habit of refusing the claim at first. Don't give up! Go right back at them and insist they honor their insurance, after all you paid for it. It can be a pain in the butt but they need to be held accountable. When they lose money, they tighten up their ...

Here is a 1P3 I have on ebay if that helps in the sorting out of this VAM. https://www.ebay.com/itm/133877259290
Not trying to advertise here just for identifying the die progression.

Re: O/T USPS GOOF UP THE HONEY STORY

Insurance on coins is no guarantee you will get your money back. They will make it nearly impossible to get your money back. Don't give up as their standard first reply is to deny the claim. I once sold a large beer sign and it didn't even get delivered to the buyer since they crushed it in shippin...

Re: Watch your backs at coin shows!

I repeat and it would have worked if you could have switched fake for real. Hide the real and leave the fake out. If using a car you can fix it so you slide the real under the back seat from the trunk area while the fake sits in the trunk area. Considering the amount of loss it seems well worth the ...

$25 didn't fill my gas can. My big ride-on mower sucks it up. We've gone over $5 in most stations here on the Oregon coast.

I forgot to mention that if you need a little extra weight in the dummy case, add some lead weights found at any outdoor store.

Theft at gun shows!

Years ago I watched a movie with Robert Forster where he was a jewelry/diamond salesman. He had a dummy case he used. Then he built a secret compartment in the trunk of his car under the floor where the real diamonds were put. He put the dummy case full of fake diamonds on top of it on the floor of ...
