Re: 1887P VAM 10A polished wing?

I am no where near an expert on the subject, but I was thinking it might be finger feed gouges. Others will likely chime in.

Re: 1887 VAM-12a with extra wreath berry

Not a VAM I had ever looked at closely, but really like the look of it. It does appear to be a later die state than the full coin photos of VAM 12a (die crack above bonnet) Thanks for posting it

Sent a reply to you Mitch. Original PM was hung up in my computer. Glad the coin is still in good hands as well.

Looking for the owner of coin in photo

Would like to find the owner of the coin in the 1st full coin photo on the 1891 o VAM 14a page. http://www.vamworld.com/w/images/a/ad/NESVT20121004_1891O_14A_02.JPG Working on the 1891 o die study and need a close up or two of a couple areas on that specific coin if possible. Also, anyone having a V...

When I get time, I'll dig out my NGC AU 55 PL for a photo or two. It is an 1891 o - VAM 15

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

I'd be interested in knowing when you post the feedback..... just to watch and see if E bay deletes it due to it being one of their big sellers. In which case, a call to E bay would be in order... about covering for bad sellers.

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

I was curious what one of those polished up looking "AU/BU" coins actually looked like in hand. Seems from that seller's feedback that quite a few don't know what they are buying compared to what they are receiving. I'd say send it back and note the difference in the feedback as well.

Re: 1891 o - VAM 20a discovery info

Received a nice example today of VAM 20a. Attaching photos of full obv. and full rev, for use on the page if someone could possibly crop and resize for use on the VAM page.... should be a nice upgrade to my set when I send to ANACS,

Re: Coin

I use an app on my phone called google lens, just take a snapshot on my phone of it and it brings up associated items. Looks like there are many similar varieties of this coin.

Crazy prices......

Inflation must be hitting the coin market too..... don't know about other dates / mm combos, but my favorite has jumped a lot in the last year or so. Many grades nearly doubled in asking prices on the bay from last year.

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.
