Well, if you can get a gold CAC sticker on it, then it'll be worth 64 money (because stickers :roll: ).

Re: 8TF VAM-14 Proof??

Is it online somewhere or just in the pops? NGC attributions have historically needed to be taken cum grano salis.

Re: Guess the Grade, 1921 Peace PCGS Unattributed VAM 1H

These are tough to grade from TrueViews with that flat lighting. This die pair tends to have an above-average strike, if I recall. I also keep coming back to the middle row of feathers across the wing looking like they're worn and not just weakly struck. The rims look nice, though, as they would on ...

Re: 1921-D JOH-25 Small Breaks D, S and S

The huge problem is, the 1921-D Die Crack Break Guide is horribly not up to date. Only 77 different VAMs are represented in it, out of the 228 that currently exist. I would like to try and help fix this somehow. Any ideas how I can contribute? I own 3 raw, circulated 1921-D that you folks have seen...

looking forward to see where this is going! :)
I'll probably list it as new. Waiting to hear from other 79-S specialists. The bit pointed to in the R above is just a hit on the coin.

No VAM number is assigned without me seeing the coin.

Re: Thank you ANACS!!

As much as 1921s drive me nuts, congratulations on this well-deserved award for the dedication it takes to pursue, assemble, and document a set like this.

Re: 1925-P with a weird font on the date?

They look the same to me. The thinner one might be thin because of machine doubling.

Re: 1923-P VAM Question

First things first, there's no such thing as multiple VAMs on one coin. It's a common misconception stemming from a misunderstanding of what a VAM is. A VAM is a specific combination of an obverse and a reverse die that can be told apart from other such combinations. The way we tell them apart is by...

Re: 1891-CC VAM-3 (or is it - HELP!)

Yes, it's VAM 3. I don't see any actual doubling in your pictures. There may be machine doubling, but you might also be seeing reflections on the coins taking on the appearance of doubling.

Re: 80 O possible duplicate listing

VAM 80 was discovered by Lawrence Lane. I'd agree they're probably the same. I'd want to see clear pictures of a coin showing markers that match both sets of Leroy's pictures.

No i understand that part , he said crossover . like it was already in plastic , I thought they returned them if they would not crossover .
I'm assuming the poster meant it went to encapsulation and did not cross. Same thing happened to me once.

I've had a crossover go to encapsulation and did not grade.. How does that work ? I thought if they would not cross they were returned :roll: Encapsulation is the next step in the process after grading. If nothing in the submission is to be encapsulated, they're done immediately and forward it to Q...
