Re: 1878 7TF Minor Renumbering Complete

:D 8-) Excellent.

I think there's a lot of work to do on the C reverses. :popcorn:

Re: SSDC Registry deadline is Dec 1st

Wanted to reply to my last post since I'm not the best communicator at times. I very much appreciate the work of everyone involved with the registry. Every time I have mentioned an issue it has been quickly addressed.

Re: SSDC Registry deadline is Dec 1st

It's difficult to complete in the registry. There are many tabulation errors and head scratching scores. I keep trying though. :popcorn: Example.. 1878 63DMPL VAM-21 is 520 points, yet an MS65 is only 325 points. An 1878 VAM-3 in 63DMPL is only 260 points, MS65 is also 260 pts. VAM-21 and 3 seem to ...

Re: Unattributed 14.11

I was the under bidder.. but didn't need it so let it go.

I did pick up the 1878 R79 NGC AU50 in this auction. It happens to be a VAM-228.4 and the final coin to complete my C reverse set. 8-)

Re: No one posts picks anymore... HERE'S A COUPLE!!

My most exciting pick is 1878 VAM-221A in a PCGS MS62 holder. This will only be the 4th MS added to the registry (1 higher) and a pretty big upgrade of my XF45 ANACS coin that I bought in an attributed holder. First one I've seen in the wild. 8-) d318a535-0553-460c-9b26-955031f077fa.jpeg 807e72dc-7f...

EDS. Die chips don't suddenly disappear. No texture that one would see with a filled die, either.
Thanks for your insight.

Re: 1878 8tf vam 4

What are the thoughts.. EDS pre chip or LDS chip removed? The coin pictured on the VAM 4B page was viewed by me, John R, John C, Fogie, Brian Raines, and Larry Briggs in hand at the ANA show. There is no chip on that coin and there never was. The coin was VF. Any thoughts on EDS vs LDS? One more to...

Re: Non Graded but self ATTRIB fOR Sales

The only problem is half the time the seller has no idea what they are talking about. I have notified sellers only to get childish name calling responses. Check out the last one.. of course he was wrong and ended his listing. As I said in the description, we DO NOT LIST ANYTHING WITHOUT BEING ABSOLU...

Amazingly I bought another 1878 in this auction and didn't even look at this coin since it was cleaned. :oops:

Re: 1878 7TF Minor Renumbering

147 has not been changed in the registry. @fogie @alefzero

VAM 140.2 is now VAM 147, as it uses a different reverse die.
