Re: 1890 o VAM 1B, EDS

Thanks for the comments, a nice VAM I am really happy to have located. Likely send it in with my next slabbing bunch to ANACS.

1890 o VAM 1B, EDS

It can't really be called a "pick" as the dealer website said it was heavily clashed. But if a person can't find an 1889 VAM 23a, this might be the next best thing? Will add a few close-up photos as I can.

Re: Back from Leroy 4 NEW 1878 Varieties W/ 2 new 8 TF

Not seeing it in hand, it still has the look of a coin that was placed in a vise, bent a little , and bent back to flat. Seems a cud would have a crack line more evident, especially on a coin in higher grade. Just this guys opinion.....

Re: Best $20 O/CC "junk" buy to date...

Nice looking coin, Chris. I really like that toning..... I didn't get this one from the junk bin, but off the bay of E. I recently decided with my growing collection of 1891 o Morgans that I should venture to the low ball side for my set. Grabbed a Fr-02 to increase my graded range of the date from ...

Re: Another of my unknowns

The only normal date / mm set high is VAM 8, but it also lists a doubled ear which these 2 examples do not have. Seems to be unlisted.

Another of my unknowns

Have 2 examples of this one, normal date, centered mm, but many gouges in bow area and another in the olive leaf area. Doesn't match anything in my set of 91o Morgans, but is it a VAM 1 or does it need to get looked at?

Are these being listed anymore?

Going through my 1891 o unknown stack of Morgans, noted 2 coins with normal slanted date position and high mm location...but both have an open 9 in the date. There is an open 9 VAM listing (VAM 2) with a photo that looks slanted but is not noted as such. VAM 2 also lists the mm as centered and these...

Local show picks

Busy show for a Friday. Picked a few in the little time I had before heading to work. Hard to ever pass up a thornhead, so I added another 1B6b to my handful of thorns. Then from the lower grade pile, a 78s long nock, VAM 27. Picked up a high AU 1899o for the clash marks, turned out to be VAM 14a2 w...

I opted not to post it about a month ago over on the BST page. http://www.vamworld.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2425 It is a VAM 15b, same late die state as the coin shown in the second photo on the 15b page. I almost grabbed it for my set, but other things consume my funds currently. LVA won't cal...

Re: 1890 O VAM 13A EXTREME DIIE WEAR

Found one of these a couple weeks ago in lower grade. Not as late die state but found the reverse denticles to be really interesting, almost look like small beads attached to the inner part of the rim. Neat VAM.... and I really like the one posted here, very nice coin.
