Re: Looking for Vam Books and Attribution Guides

I got them all except the 1/2 dimes. My 8 feather book is 1st edition. Some books are autographed by the authors. Not ready to sell yet, possibly down the road when I choose. Sorry for now.

Re: Coin Insurance

For years I had a separate Marine ins. policy from Nationwide. They changed it to be an attachment on my homeowners policy recently. No matter from whom, the more you got the more costly it is. I tried to get prices from a couple of places & they're all in the same ballpark on prices. Since I do sho...

During the 70's my Dad died and my Grandfather feeling his mortality sold me a bunch of dollars for two...

Probably an xf-45 but I'd say MS-62. Some weird grades on some slab companies to get newbies money.

Re: Vam designation "JOH-23" 1921-D

JOH numbers were assigned by Rob Joyce and late Jim Hart thus JOH via 1st letters in last names. They were 21-d's not up to new VAM #'s but able to be recognized for researching purposes as I understand. Fun With 21 book gives a list of their research #'s as of that point in time.

Re: crazy-fast mail story

Just an update. It's been 9 days and still no coin. It's been sitting in the Lehigh Valley distribution facility since April 21st. Emails to USPS ignored and talk to local PO no help. Covid excuses are running thin. Just send me my coin. I live only 70 miles from there!

Re: crazy-fast mail story

I'm just the opposite. Bought a coin from a place in Maine. It took 35 hours to get from Maine to Allentown distribution center(about 7 hours straight drive) or about 400 miles. By the time I get it in Saturday afternoon's mail (hopefully) it will be 84 hours to go 70 miles to my house or about an h...
