Re: A VAM Story

Fantastic story of how you stumbled into the vamworld community.
Mine was a broken left leg and being non weight bearing for 3 months.
I stumbled into VW 1 and took 3 days to attributed my entire #12 ranked (at that time) standard morgan set.

Re: 1878s VAM-109

The order of production is 109, 100, 65 finally 10.
This was all tied together with the elimination of 87 back in 2016

Re: Show off some of your best vams!!

It might be considered as a High grade in your “high end “ Rabbit eyes. It’s the lowest graded 1888-O Scar H-10 “low ball” found in the wild untouched by pockets of Alabama Rabbits.
Lol, had PCGS “re-graded” it and yes they dropped it to a 30. 😎

1921-S Vam 1B4C (new stage) Thorn or Thornhead (new variety)

There is an additional Stage in the 1921-S Thorn Head that was added to the series. A few years ago, I was deep into the Thorn Head Die study, & thought that there was at least one more possible in the series. The discovery of the 1B6A convinced me that there has to be additional polishing events th...

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...

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.
