Re: HIt List 40 Value Questions

Interested in hearing the answer to this one, too. SSDC database guide shows odd values. Most 90-Os in 50, 53 or 55 condition go for about $45 (to $55 or $60 but not that much higher), yet the SSDC site shows the value for the VAM-20 to run amok in higher circulated grades, only to precipitously dro...

Re: Possible new finds

Education is a process... sometimes straightforward, sometimes circuituous, convoluted and chaotic...

As long as we keep open and kind, it can happen - for all us as we were all once 'less educated'.

Keep up the hunt remembering that the human brain is simultaneously our best asset... and worst!

Re: Time for a new light

According to the oracle in the Matrix... you created the scenario by the power of your thought.

The next and more important question knowing this is: What new and exciting future reality are you willing to create?

Temet nosce, my friends...

Re: OT - 1976 Ike Clashed Letters D WE plus INDENT

What an incredible hot mess!

Reminds me of some past relationships - but at least this coin will hold its value over time... ;)

Intuition - sometimes it pays to go with your gut feel?

I've often looked at a coin, not able to type it immediately but sense something about it looks 'right.' The result is more often than not me purchasing yet another variety I already have one or two of... picking up a nice coin but not filling a hole in my proverbial book. Sometimes, though, I get s...

Re: VAM PowerPoint presentations? Please share...

Brilliant and appreciated input. Because of your quick response rates and high-quality of inupt, I'm doubling all of your current salaries and immediately paying you a triple bonus over what you received last year. No, make that a sextupling of your previous bonus. Just like the 1883-P VAM-10 stars,...

I don't have anything to share but an opinion. I would stay away from minting processes and anything technical. I would show a few of the Top 100 Morgans that anyone can see with the naked eye and are actually worth some money. Let's say Hot Lips, Shifted Eagle, Scar Face, etc. I don't know how sop...

VAM PowerPoint presentations? Please share...

I'm being invited to speak to the Nottingham Numismatic Society in the autumn and I'd love to help get a few locals more interested in VAMming... I'm putting together some slides but wanted to see if the community have any they'd be willing to share. Not just about VAMs, but what led to Trade dollar...

Bellissimo - è stupefacente!

Beats my NGC 61 that I recently found and was 'oltre la Luna' over.

Great find and fantastic coin.

Re: Possible new finds

Hi Loy and welcome to the site. Don't want to sound condescending but to get 'new finds' requires a lot of ruling things out - matter of fact, you must rule out everything already described in order to find a true discovery coin. This means first you must ensure you've checked all the major descript...

Re: 1882-o 38-b value

A fantastic Vam with tons going on within. A total rotton shame the value has plummented to bargain basement IMHO Typical case of many ms examples being found after initial discovery and high value originally. MS 64 quite available with ms65 tough find but out there. if memory serves me correct, or...

Re: Help with doubling... 1883-S

My inexperineced 2-cents - I hope my comments are to help us all learn a bit, but they are far from official! Can't be a VAM-2 with doubling of the date. The VAM-2 description is set without date doubling. Has to be something else. I also do not see significant tilting of the mintmark. There is alwa...

Re: 1883-P VAM-4 - with a (possible) dash?

First thing I'd want to do is poke it with a stick. If it survived, I'd think this is a die break. No way that's a dash mark. Thanks and will gently poke. With as many scratches on it already one more might not harm it if I poke too hard. Agree it doesn't look like a dash even if it's in the right ...
