1887 vam 3A

At first i wasnt to keen on this variety, but over time i saw collector interest seem pretty strong I began buying ms64 & a few cheap 63 Today i find a PCGS 65, so pulled trigger as it was a real beauty Looked up SSDC value which only shows $195 for EDS & a mere $165 for LDS which is less than most ...

O/T Central Banks & Huge Metals have Stolen Show

Recently here in Sept Gold/Silver/metals seemed to get a reprieve from falling pricing, with silver hitting a tad over $20 oz. Then central banks etc crush the mkts by selling more short paper in futures, along with dollar & interest rate hikes, the poor metals mkts didnt stand a chance. With cheap ...

Re: 1878s VAM-100

I personally never got the lowball craze thing, but did see validity, say to super Rainbo toned Morgans. All this stuff is why collecting morgans is so cool with varied interest . IMHO however, way to crazy money spent on such niche Morgans, and the rainbo thing really got outta hand price ways. i s...

Re: 1899 O VAM 30 with clashing?

Getting hooked on clashed Morgans is as good as loving meat & potatoes for dinner.
So exciting to view various dates & MM which super bold clashings that really make coin
stand out from typical strikes. Add to that the bold die cracks on many and you have a
superior looking coin.

Re: 1887 O VAM 4 Question

Personally, I am a clasher & die break junkie !! Many Morgans that display strong clashing & die breaks also are superior in quality thus deserving of a closer look/analysis Morgans that have multiple obverse clashes (counter clashing) are really cool and desirable. Counter clash= Clash obv- Nose/ch...

Re: Heritage VAM and PL Morgan sale Monday, 9/19

It seems Heritage has largest client base known in industry, which lends to maximum exposure A crazy high price for a individual coin is pretty common nowadays at these auctions, and theres no way to figure why in most cases. Conversly sometimes a well known higher $$ coin fails to bring even wholes...

Re: I QUITE

The issue with quitting say PCGS is that individual value of a particular coin will be
devalued if i ANACS, with sucks but the way it is.
On avg Ngc coins bring roughly 80-90% of PCGS & Anacs only 60-70% ICG 50-60%
