Re: GSA with a little something, um, well, extra

Was it PCGS or ANACS that had a slabbed cockroach?

I'm going to go ahead and say that's a carpet fiber. (Please be a carpet fiber.)

Looks like I'll be at table 1124. Looking forward to a VAM dinner Friday night, and I'll be free for dinner Saturday as well.

Re: 1878-S thee dot above "B" in RIB.

I took the picture such that it would be easy to see the overdate. Mission accomplished, I guess.

Re: 1921 Peace dollars

... Third, authentication and grading companies seldom consider detail when "grading" 1921's - this means that a coin receiving a high numerical grade might have lousy detail, but a high asking price. ... The flip side of this is that if you are persistent, you can find well-struck Peace dollars th...

Click on the magnifying glass before typing anything into the search box, then a search screen will come up with all sorts of parameters. Clicking on the gear next to the magnifying glass will also bring up the advanced search window.

it's a partial collar.
Being that extreme, and having the distorted letters and stars that a broadstrike does, would you price it about the same as an uncentered broadstrike?

Re: Off-Center 1921-D or something else?

If that's all the collar there is, I'm going with uncentered broadstrike. That's a major score for a Morgan. I just did a search on Heritage, and they have 5 in their history. Two are AU 1921-Ss, each selling for over $400, and they have a trace of collar on them.

Uncentered broadstrike, perhaps. Need to see the edge.

Re: INTERESTING 1881 O

It's not significant enough to have been mentioned when any of the varieties for 81-O were listed. Other features (mint mark, date, wing-neck gap) will be needed to attribute this one.

You can send 1, you can send 100. If you send 100, you get the bulk order to yourself.

It looks like all 5 had COPY or something stamped into them as well that was then over stamped as well. LOL :lol: OR the 1878 is the real rare 1878 Reverse of 21 that's really rare! This.

Helping Clay reminded me of a question I have had about logging in GSAs.
Why are there two questions asking if your coin is a GSA?
Probably a bug. This would be a question for John C (@alefzero).

Re: Interesting 1902-O

It's either 66 or 66A. I can't tell if you have the lumpy pitting left of the D in DOLLAR or not, and that's the difference between the two.

Edit: I see you've figured that out. Never mind, then.

Re: 1895-O Vam 3a

VAM 3A isn't a particularly rare 95-O. The premium for the old "ANA Official Grade" holder is going to be more than any VAM premium there is. Nice coin!
