Re: 78-S -- new VAM-51 die 2

I feel VAMs are going to be somewhat absurd if new die combo's cease to become new VAMs. Obviously it's Leroy's party, and he can do as he pleases, but I can't help but feel that this VAM-11.2 trend is muddying the waters (since it's supremely arbitrary and can go either way and often does). Not to...

Re: Found another 1893-O VAM-6 privately-made, post your 1893-O/1894-O PMs

To me, the history alone of these who-dunnit CC's should give them more general collector interest than most VAMs. VAMs are the niche - these are just plain US history with a side of criminal intrigue in the form of a coin. Trying to explain VAMs to people makes us sound like bird watchers. These CC...

Re: PCGS attribution screw ups

PCGwho? They can't even return a call half the time. Their bulk/pre-sort department lost a huuuuuge order since they're too unorganized to even return a call. They began to die the day Miles left. Sad. It hurts to use NGC. I fear that one day, sooner or later, PCGS will be a mere shadow of NGC. (And...

Re: O/T Oregon Fires

I'm on the westside at the foot of the coastal range and it got pretty bad a couple of days. California, Oregon, and Washington all want to blame global warming while ir rains torrentially elsewhere on the planet. Bottom line is the need to manage the forests by thinning out the dead stuff and clea...

Re: ANACS GRADES 9-1-2020

Last I checked (admittedly many years ago) JR did both the attribution and grading.
He grades conservative but accurate in my experiences.

Re: O/T... CC Half-Dollar Love Token... Can we lock date from MM???

Threads like this are the reason why the folks who've been VAMming for a decade plus never muddy the waters when the perennial "what ever shall we do when LVA can no longer carry the torch" conversation comes up. We'll do just fine.

The crispness of the denticles are those of a fairly fresh die.
