Re: Availability of updates of the encyclopedia of Morgan and Peace dollars

several vam 13, and vam 11's have been examined< and they were found to be misattributed. i believe the vam 13's were vam 14.4. it's been awhile since we discussed these. a number of coins have been delisted due to improper attributions initially.

I have 2 1878s v96. Every v67/104 that i have seen has the same obverse/reverse markers. All are vam 67 in my book. V85 was my discovery and was sold to mark kimpton eons ago for a pittance but i have no idea who he sold it to. I do not believe that it is possible for vam 91 to exist. I have seen ma...

Well, all kidding aside, that is a super nice coin. The 1921 morgan 15% M.A.D. Was spectacular. I wish i knew where it was.
