Re: NGC VAM price less than non VAM?? REALLY

I know, I dont place much on Vam values but a non vam is more than the vam by $80, better to not be a vam at all. I was just curious

NGC VAM price less than non VAM?? REALLY

Can anyone explain why a MS65 1887 Vam 14A is $155. and without the Vam is $235.
Are they just slow to update???

Also it is marked Vam 14 but actually is a 14A

Re: 1886 P VAM 1F/6A question

I think your right, maybe I'm looking too high for ST, I guess a crack or part of the wing

Re: 1886 P VAM 1F/6A question

I dont think there should be one, the same slight N clash is present as shown for the 1F but there is a mark where the ST would be i one one were listed. So Im asking what this IS????

Re: 1886 P VAM 1F/6A question

I realize that, I said it matches pretty close to 6A but I missed adding a picture of the marks I mentioned,
sorry

I think they are just surface marks or maybe related to clash, your thoughts

1886 P VAM 1F/6A question

I need help seeing the ST clash. There seems to be just a line going thru not a letter??? So 1886-P VAM-6A High 6, Clashed Obverse no makes no mention of an ST clash if that is what this is??? Other than that it seems to match the 6A but there are surface impressions on reverse that maybe could be t...

Re: 1879 O Reverse clash help

Update: VAM-29 - No letter transfer, so clash was irrelevant to attribution. Noted: Doubled reverse hub like the 78 C3b dies but listing was prior to discovery of working dies from 78 hub for this date. Piece is consistent with the 1 Van Allen plate from the 1999 update and the images on VAM World. ...

Re: 1879 O Reverse clash help

Yikes what to do, I am able to see a T and a very faint N << really hard to see and yet I cant find a VAM with same reverse. I also see the bridge of nose between leaves and slight doubling on a single leaf and reverse bow line. So you think ANACS will know what to do with it, the way the rep spoke ...

Re: 1879 O Reverse clash help

Ready to ship to ANACS but they say if there is no known VAM it will come back without so I either have to find the VAM (which I can not) or send in for attribution BEFORE grading to include on label, UUuggghhhh so I guess the next step is attribution and hope for the best LOL

Re: 1879 O Reverse clash help

Re: 1879 O Reverse clash help

Hummmm, After reading up more it seems only clashed letters on obverse and reverse are listed. So I guess the question to the members is this coin worth sending for attribution?? I personally think these are large and major design elements (spike top wing I think is her forehead) and MAYBE might mak...
