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

Oh darn. I thought you were going to reveal a 14.16. I pass on VAM 23 unless it is high grade.

Seeking some logic regarding 1878 VAM80A / VAM80B listings.

I have noticed that the listing description for VAM 80B (mid die state) states that it is more common than VAM 80A (late die state), yet the VAM 80B header denotes I-4 / R-6, and VAM 80A is denoted as I-2 /R-5. ?????????
Shouldn't this be the opposite ?

1899-o TOP 100 VAM 32 Micro o

One of the more challenging 1899-o micro o die varieties. Compare to this recent eBay sale. This coin definitely superior to the ANACS 50. https://www.ebay.com/itm/162718661311?hash=item25e2c9babf%3Ag%3AAWQAAOSwWflZ6OJv&nma=true&si=qS3RPeOAgCl%252Fassa6X9w9Pdwr1Y%253D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=n...

Re: 1878-S VAM 58 SP65

Had this coin in hand at a Baltimore show when it was fresh from the Doyle Sale in NYC. I had been acquainted with the partners who bought it. They put a lot of time and research in to getting it designated SP.

This is the eighth or ninth example of this iconic VAM that I have handled. Not a gem, but not a budget buster.
These don't come around very often.
Priced at $350 delivered.

Re: Beware of this deadbeat.

In his communication by email to confirm the purchase, he wanted to provide a CC number by telephone, which I regarded as a bit suspect. When I told him I would accept a check, he agreed to mail one. Then he ghosted me. No response to several emails. I've communicated that the transaction is voided ...

Beware of this deadbeat.

Made a written (email) agreement to purchase a coin, and never sent payment, never responded to follow up reminder emails.

What would you do ?

Had a buyer commit by email to buy this 8TF VAM 9 a week ago(6/2), with an agreement to mail a check. As of today 6/9, no payment.
