A post over at PCGS said parking in the Convention Center garage is $31/day! :o Is that for real?
That was at a different hotel near the convention center. The parking in the big garage across the street from the convention center is $15, and restaurants behind the garage validate parking.

1878 7TF Minor Renumbering

In the interest of getting rid of the "Die 1/Die 2" notation, a couple 78 7TFs have been renumbered. VAM 140.1 is now VAM 140. The clashed die stage is still VAM 140A. VAM 140.2 is now VAM 147, as it uses a different reverse die. VAM 114.1 is now VAM 124, as it uses a different reverse die from VAM ...

I had a chair in the hallway, but when I came back from the restroom it was gone.....maybe next year. :)
Dibs only applies to parking spots on streets in the winter, not in convention centers.

Re: estate sale an old holder 1881-S

I take it the other side of the insert is blank. Chances are this is some boiler room flip. The tag was printed on a band printer, probably in the mid to late '80s as prices on silver dollars with grades was first starting to take off bigly. The lack of any identification tells me the seller didn't ...

Scarce EDS of 78-S VAM 16 now VAM 16A

I had a chance to look at a scarce early die stage of the 78-S VAM 16 side-by-side with the one everyone has (thanks lewisr2 ). The EDS has the gouge in the eagle's right wing extending far into the left field, while the more common one has it polished away, along with a light clash. This is the sam...

Re: 1878CC Vam7a

I usually see this one in XF-AU grades, so an MS63 is a pretty good pick. I wouldn't call it rare in circulated grades, but it probably is in MS63.

OK

Then is it just considered a clash on the denticles, crushing them 1/2 way down?
Not a clash at all. A clash is when dies hit each other and cause subsequent coins to show the after-effects. Did you happen to catch the doubled stars?

How can that be? is it circulated then? How can the surface be PL if it has wear?
Light wear that results in an AU58 grade can still leave sufficient mirrors in the fields to qualify the coin for a PL designation. I haven't seen a 55PL, if the mirrors are still there, it should be graded PL.

Re: "78 8TF VAM-9A Possible new die state??

I don't see anything that would make me think to list another stage. 9A has a weak clash, 9 doesn't have a clash. Your looks like it might have a second, weaker clash, but it's not listable.

Re: Rotation

Rotation under 15° isn't considered a big deal. Other features of the coins will help with the attribution more than the rotation will.

The term I first heard about 25 years ago was "orange peel". I was told it's fairly common on 1901-Ps and I've seen it many times since on that date.
This thread has a lot of good stuff about "orange peel."

1880-S Listing Carnage

Lots of changes to the 80-S listings, making it a little easier to attribute that date. Former 7A is 122. since it's not related to VAM 7. 45A is now VAM 124, for a similar reason. 124 has the reverse shared with some 79-S's and the obverse of VAM 63, which shares a reverse with a few others, which ...
