Re: 1886 VAM 20 REPUNCHED DATE

After doing a market analysis on a Cleaned VF 1886 p VAM-20 It did not justify the cash I had into the coin. $220 I returned it :-) Soooo you will probably see it listed again with a little more descriptive description as I sent it back as not as described ( cleaned and Rim Dings ( multiple ) ) Good...

Re: 1899-O VAM-25; I am WAY TOO GREEN to be the first person to notice this detail?

Welcome to VAMWorld! Your coin is VAM 25B, just like the one in the other thread. It seems to be a fairly common variety with no premium. The obverse dies have the same faint die crack from the 1 to the tip of the bust, so there is no different obverse die in play. The dent in the left 9 is a punch...

Re: 1899-O - Die Cracks on Reverse... V25B or Discovery coin or?

Whatever you've got, I think I have it's identical twin. Exact same crack pattern, around the inside of the rim on the reverse, except a little smaller & fainter (but not that much.) I'm not seeing any of the doubled features on the front of mine, even under a (cheapie) digital microscope at max ma...

Re: 1880-O Question

I'm going to invoke "poke it with a stick." It almost looks like there was a planchet impurity through the S that caused the raised part to partially "detach" from the rest of the coin and be bent as it is. A gentle prod with a rose thorn under a stereoscope should show this. I like this thought bu...

There's really no collector premium for that VAM, so look at Greysheet for your answer.
Yeah but people like crack :-)

Re: 1886 VAM 20 REPUNCHED DATE

I honestly think you messed up. That thing would have sat until he got pissed enough to list it for less than it auctioned for. Here's to hoping you let the world know how he operates when the time comes to leave feedback... I can only leave feedback per my business dealings with him. So far its be...

1887 P MOrgan VAM-4 EDS

Is this look like what is called a serif spike for an Early Die State VAM-4?

On the contrary, there's only one idiot in this whole fiasco and we all know who that is. And he should damn sure be ashamed of himself for acting like one.

I do think the coin has been cleaned though and hope you got it cheap. Either way, good :) :) luck.
Yeah I am thinking a cleaned XF

Re: 1886 VAM 20 REPUNCHED DATE

Yep, you are NOT the Idiot here... That is a really tough coin to find. I would have done the same thing at $275. ( or less) I just couldn't find the listing anymore. Less, but a few dollars more than his real auction ending Yeah he kept popping it on and off with variable pricing and lasted a day ...
