Re: 1878s Top 30 Rarity List

SSDC needs to delete 1, 2, 54, 61, 85, and 94 from the 1878-s Sets
They are in the “May not exist list” in VW
If one surfaces like the one I found (Vam 10) then we can re-add it.

Re: 78S missing a lot hair, is this a V113

Try again and re-attribute it
Start with 4 star on right and R in trust
This will cut down your search be 1/3
Once you figure it out, please adjust our title
It is not part of the dragon wing series
it’s not a Vam 113

Re: New 78-S ??

Lew, congratulations on your sharp eye and hunch in determining that something just wasn’t right about the Rev Vam 1C/95. I’ve always need to be re-reminded to flip “it” over because you never know what you will find. This is what a Vam study is all about. Try it sometime, it might open you to a who...

Re: 1878-S Vam 1, 54, 61, 85 and 94 need to be killed or put in the “May not exist” category

Need to bring up the option of either killing off or put in the “may now exist category”; the following:
1878-s Vam 54, 61, 85, and 94. If anyone has proof that they exist or are duplicates, please bring information to our attention.

So can we speculate that the 78-S B2 minting process started on May 15? So let’s continue to discussion of when the 78-s Vam 58 SP plus business strikes, continuing on with the Vam 56 And finalizing with the Vam 62 were actually minted?

Re: 1878-S dollar. Can you separate fact from fiction?

Do you have a copy of Dodges’s SF Dollar delivered in May or early May telegraph?
This would be helpful in estimating how many total B-1’s were minted

Series 1: 78-s vam 60, 26 EDS and LDS , Vam 57 Type 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 all share the Same OB (1).
Vam 60, 26 and 57 each have different Reverses (3).
