Re: OT 1884 PCGSPR63CAM

They really split hairs in not grading that full gem. Unless the images are hiding something, that needs a CAC (perhaps a gold CAC).

Re: Pcgs vams sold

Selling can be rather arduous when you have an enormous accumulation. I started with thousands of slabbed (mainly) Morgan VAMs in late 2004. Figured I would sell them out in a few years. I am now down to a under couple double-row boxes. Not easy and definitely was not profitable overall. Some did ve...

Re: Legal or Not?

Having never held one, does it specifically have a marking as "copy" or something of the kind on it? My first thoughts were that I was surprised by the listing premium on eBay given that they are essentially "fantasy" coins My second thoughts were that if they are not marked, then once cracked out ...

Re: Legal or Not?

Well............... Speaking of tokens as we were, what about the Dan Carr Morgans struck each year. I think I remember that these are actually struck on existing Morgan Dollars. This is another question since I thought I understood that only the obverse was restruck to change the date. Legal? Sect...

Yeah, not likely to be seen again. The Mint wouldn't typically restrike using dies sitting on the shelf for 137 years. Very cool.

Re: FUN Show 2022 Roll Call

Regrettably, I will not be there. Cancelled my flight Tuesday afternoon. But for those who are going, my table will have two outstanding members of the VAM community in my stead. Stop by 313 for sure.

Re: SSDC Census question

More generally, I have wanted to find the time to use cascading menus for look ups. Just need the time to put together and test the javascript to do it (unless someone has a canned thing already). Preserving state would be another task, but possibly doable. The change, however, is at that client end...

Re: we have all been waiting w/ eager anticipation

I dumped the WCF variety prefix and changed the variety descriptors to be more natural. I would propose that we decide at FUN what varieties to specifically include. Anyone who wants input, come prepared. We can add Friendly Eagles and even Peg Legs, if people want them. (I expect Brian and John R w...

Re: VAMWorld Datbase Error

In addition, new files are not displaying correctly. Check out the new VAM page for the 1921-P VAM-3AA1 and look under additional photos. That is interesting... there's a live link to the correct photo, but the photo itself isn't displaying. I hope John C. wanders by and can fix that. I am not an a...

Re: PCGS 2021 pops keep going up

The majority of the 70s (being the majority thus far graded) were advance release. I do not know the deal with those, just that they are. They were big bulk orders, unavailable to us peons. Apparently they also were allowed to be submitted with grade and holder only at 70, something also unavailable...

The 21-D will be the king of the release. Has some messed up strikes too. Can't wait to see my grades and TrueViews. Didn't look at any of them before submission. Just dropped them off.

Re: Meet your new Official Attributors

So your VARslabs should increase in volume significantly, with the already slabbed reverse labeled. My presumption is that JR will do his as part of the grading process and would simply add the attribution to the labels, and would do the honors of easily transferring the discovery provenance of your...
