Re: $85 coin sold for $7,125

Makes you wonder about the ones that got cracked out and sent back in later hoping for an upgrade.

What beautiful penmanship, but I must say it appears that he used a Big Chief tablet.

Re: Scarface bidding lunacy

I'm not a dealer or a veteran VAMMER and have no doubt paid a little extra extra here and there but, what I don't get is "toning". My mother"s tea service would become alive with rainbows of blues, reds and yellows a few weeks after polishing. Then, blacker than sin within the next week. I prefer co...

Counterfeit or what?

Went to bid on this the other day and "PCGS verify" didn't like the serial number, what do you guys think? Fives in the serial number appear to be different fonts.

Re: Verification please

Just checked this OFFERUP listing. Four Morgans for sale, all key dates, none slabbed. Somebody in Ohio needs to call FBI.

1921-P 3FG3 or not ?

I just got a PCGS "sample" slab that I am told they gave out at shows. Ser.#12345678. The only markers it still has are the spike on the F and the two scratches in the hair. I copied the pics off the wiki. The upper tail feathers are polished out more than the full coin example of the 3FG2. All othe...

Re: FUN ZOOM Call

Yes, Big thanks to JB and his daughter. I had leftover pork tenderloin and fries. Great tidbits of info mixed with the chit-chat. I was inspired to dig out and go through some Morgans I had gotten when I was in grade school. So far I have been able to ID four of them. 84p-V18, 96p-V1E, 98p-V5, 99s-V...

Re: Stupid Questions from the new guy!

Kaleb, Welcome and congrats on being 31. I was well over 50 when I got bit by the VAM bug.

Kenny, Cool vid, wish I had seen that early on. Would have answered a lot of my stupid
questions. Lastly, Corona, really?

Re: I won a Gold PCGS Set Registry award!

Looks like they need to be sent to Leroy to get those rotated dies their own VAM numbers. Great job.

Re: OT - What would you do?

I bought a $1000 bag from a dealer years ago, it came in a blue monster box with two canvas coin bags inside. I got $500 in dimes and $500 in quarters. I remember it having over $100 in postage on it. Probably costs 3 times that now.
