Stereo Microscope?

Any advise on buying a stereo microscope with camera? There seems to be allot of AmScope 3.5-90x or 180x Zoom Stereo Microscopes and different camera configurations (1.5, 3, 8 10, 14mp) that seem interesting. I wondered if anyone is using one and what they are using ....

Re: PCGS 2021 pops keep going up

The Pop numbers are "skewed?" I happened to get up early one day and on TV was infomercial for Morgan complete sets and Eagle sets, (act now only 400 available!), on something called CSNTV, ANACS graded. Or are the CSNTV offers not really ANACS?.

Raw vs Slab

In your opinions, how much more would you pay for a slabbed coin vs a raw, exact grade? (assuming a reputable slab, commons)
It takes work out if the coin is graded, but excitement as well. :?:

Re: Yesteryear Vam Collecting/Investing

I believe that there is a true difference between the combination of Honor, Knowledge, Value, with Fun verses Cash. The discovery and additions to the market of VAM's not only gives more chances for completing a collection, but hopefully conserves Morgan and Peace Dollars, which is the basis of coll...

Re: 2021 Morgans and Peace Dollars - Orders are processing

Saw a "D" on ebay stating that it had shipped from the mint and that the seller had received an actual tracking number... Any reliable sources get the same yet?

Will you be sending to PCGS/NGC for grading?

Re: When some PUP's are missing?

Thanks for the advise, and the humor. I read as you suggested, the Vam 19 fits the bill. I guess since I saw half of the die crack of the 19A and the 19 has no mention of the crack, I really wasn't sure what pushes it to the 19A. I am still working on my photo skills, consistent lighting is my stumb...

When some PUP's are missing?

Please contribute your thoughts on the subject of missing PUP's on a coin- Example- I Have a 1884 Narrow O. In looking though, the closest I have found is a 19A.... It has the rust spots, wheat leaf gouge, date set with doubling and the vertical die break on the leaf cluster. It does not have the Di...

Re: Favorite Non-List VAM

So I will bite. 1899 O v20 I bought a raw 1899-O that was a frosty 62-63. When I got home and really looped it, I found the reverse was spectacularly doubled from 10 o'clock to 1 o'clock, all words and the eagle in that pie cut, and the search was on! I think that there is this kernel in the back of...

Re: WWYD? Keep or Return?

Very good Sage advice. I have returned the coin. My goal is a minimum of MS-60, except that I am a working guy and doubt that my pocket will achieve that on certain coins of course. I play the raws for the deal of course, not to accumulate problem coins. That is a mistake, no doubt, and I don't want...

WWYD? Keep or Return?

Looking for advise.. Recently "won" a raw 1882 O Vam 5 on eBay @ $100. Picture showed some field scratch on obverse, slight toning on front, but all in all at least AU-55. Seller is reputable, 99.9% positive, offers returns, has over 300,000 sales. Coin was sold as pictured, no grade implied. And I ...
