Re: O/T Taxman

Ebay told me it gets sent to the purchasers state and could also be claimed through them. I contacted the state and was told I could file to get it back from the state if Ebay wouldn't return it. It looks to me like unless one makes an issue of it the state still collects it. I asked Ebay to put an ...

Re: O/T Taxman

Effective a couple years ago, my state does not charge tax on silver or gold - coins or bullion. I noticed Ebay was charging tax on my purchases late last year and inquired about it. Was told I needed a business tax form filled out. Argued it with them over a few months and was able to get refunds f...

Re: 1890-CC Obv. Clash showing lettering?

Welcome to the site..... you might take a look at VAM 5a. The primary feature being the doubled CC, but your photo of the die crack through the T of states seems to match. The area of clashing you enlarged looks to possibly be PMD from another coin hitting that area.

Re: O/T April 2022 Commodity Mkts

Where's the ice cream..... was at local Wal Mart, never have seen anything like it. With the exception of a few boxes of novelty bars, the entire ice cream section was empty. About 80 running feet of freezer shelves completely empty.......

Re: Gas Prices

That's exactly what it was to fill my 5 gallon can for my mower last time. And with cutting 2 acres, it goes fairly fast.

Re: Calling ALL VAMMers - Rotated dies

Got back 2 rotated Peace dollars in my last ANACS submission, 1922 ccw 40 degrees in AU 58, and 1923 cw 50 degrees AU details cleaned. Will try to VAM them and get a photo or two on here.

Re: Calling ALL VAMMers - Rotated dies

You've likely seen this page, but it is the one I have used for a number of years..... http://vamworld.com/wiki/Morgan_Dollar_Rotated_Dies there are likely some to be added to the list.

Re: 1900 O VAM help

Might check out VAM 21D1, possibly early die state, not full cracks / break - which could revert it back to being VAM 21

Re: 1921 d - VAM 1CQ

Old thread, but was going through a few Morgans and found another later die state feature that could be used as a PUP for this VAM... Rim area near the P in PLURIBUS. Have it on 2 examples.

I know we have at least a couple of VAMmers in the Wichita area (Andover is basically a suburb) Hope they didn't have any issues from the storm....

Re: She is no HOT LIPS

That is true, but makes me wonder how many different VAMs could be identified at this level of wear... maybe a list could be started... or perhaps there is one already. Hot lips would make the list, perhaps an E clash or 2, a 7/8 tailfeather? I'd guess the 90 CC tailbar could survive it. Others????

Re: Maybe OT - Coin Shows

It was in the land of "Oz" yesterday. A few places hit here in Kansas, Andover hit the worst. We had a 11 mile twister track end about 25 miles west of my place and another touch down about 10 miles due North of here.

Re: 1900 "superman" S...?

Welcome to posting on the site. Take a look at VAM 25 as a possibility, it appears to have a top heavy MM as well.
