Re: Mark Kimpton Discovery Coin Collection

I’m not Steve, but I did consider buying the collection when Mark was offering. Knowing what the selling price was, I expected he was hoping for a little more. As Dennis pointed out, a lot of those DCs went for $80-100 which I would consider a good deal with that provenance.

Re: Mark Kimpton Collection at Stack's/Bowers

JB is correct except he didn’t sell his collection to Micheal Fey, but to someone else like me on this site who had an interest in clashed dies. I did consider at the time, but had 2 kids in college.

I do believe he sold the the rights to his book to Micheal Fey, but not much has come from that.

Re: My Almost 1st VAM Pick

Alan, I remember your passion for that ANACS lanyard and the parties involved in the pursuit of one. BTW, I have an ANACS lanyard from years past. So you are telling me it’s a collectible now?

Re: My Almost 1st VAM Pick

http://ec2-13-58-222-16.us-east-2.compute.amazonaws.com/wiki/1888-P_VAM-12B This certainly would qualify as an almost first VAM pick because it never really was a VAM. It was in my first submission to LVA and I had no idea what I was doing. It certainly created a stir at the time. Many good stories ...

Re: 1900-O VAM 38D

Thanks Lee for posting the pics, as I’m not good with IT. If any coin ever had a chance of a clashed E this one certainly did. Must not be there as the DC was MS and certainly could of been seen.

1900-O VAM 38D

This coin needs to be added to the clashed G SSDC set.

I found one in a junk box today in F-VF and thought I had found a new clashed G until Lee(ljs) rained on my parade. One of the coolest clashed coins next to the 1891-O VAM 14A

Re: Coins to car racing

Don’t have any race cars, but did buy my first “collectible” car last year….1961 Corvair Lakewood wagon. I got it from my uncle who bought it new then restored it in late 80s-90s. One of the most unique American cars ever made and Ralph Nader loved them. Looks brand new and gets lots of looks when I...

Re: WTB 1902-O VAM-90A

Your welcome Alan. After seeing this post I figured you would appreciate this VAM more than me. It was one of my favorite DCs next to the 1900-O VAM VAM 31C which also found a new home this week.

Yes I still have the coin and it is “seared” in an ANACS holder. It’s one of those coins I’ll always keep for the memories

Re: 1882 O NGC ms65 vam 38B ms65 Finally

The timeline is correct. The provenance makes that coin special. Even though Lee is the “King” of clash now, Mark K was/is the true King.

Below is the link for the above VAM . Lee has the top pop, but this coin comes in second. It is tough to find this Super CD in this condition.

Re: New 82-O Clashed G

I found this one in a bunch of raw 82-O O/S labeled Morgans. I immediately realized it wasn’t a 29/38A, but was too lazy to figure it out. I knew Lee was a clash G fanatic and would love it. I did repeatedly look for a clash E and would have kept it if there was a slightest hint of one ;) I expect i...
