1891 O Vam 1A3

So pissed off that vams 3A1 & 3A2 have fallen off cliff in value, I began collecting 1A2 & 1A3 as still decent premiums. Buying a few from auction sites, natrually mostly 1A2, I knew i had to eventually start checking my inventory. With it raining i figured today, Sunday a good day to start. The lon...

Collector's East Coast vs West Coast

All this mostly IMHO, except verified by several large coin dealers from both Coasts. Over many yrs collecting, interfacing with many collector's and dealers it is very apparent that people from each distinct areas, East coast vs West coast think and act very differently. East coast coin folk tend t...

Re: 1891 O Vam 1A not 4

i totally agree/2nd the motion of coin needing a VSS STICKER.
Thats a real dandy with Bill Fivaz pedigree and then to have VSS 1A3 would really
top it off. Take the time & a few bucks to get ur done.

Re: are eBay buyers clueless?

It is very common/daily to see these varied prices received on Fleabay, because some buyers just dont do research, and the bidding hype also gets involved. This is why we see details/cleaned and lower graded Morgans bring crazy money periodically. Buyer beware if you are not ready to do some pricing...

Re: OT; Thanksgiving Break

Often wished i had expanded my collecting horizons a bit, but instead ended up with a Morgan collection comparible to Redfield, which still blows me away. Will...

Re: Impact of Rim Ding on grading

Because she has that large ding and will be a details coin anyway i would give her a decent bath to remove all that black on reverse as it cant but help. I would send to Anacs not PCGS/NGC as Anacs will give a numerical net grade and that helps to determine final value, which Details coins average a...

Theft at public & private places has always been rampant especially if coins and bullion are involved. Having a real secure safe is paramount. Public venues like coin shows, flea mks etc should have extra precautions on place. More than one person at a sale table, locked displays, and security of so...
