Re: New SSDC Member. Cant access registry

It looks like you've been added to the registry website. You need to create an account there under the "sign up" section before you can sign in. The login account isn't shared between VAMWorld and the registry. Send me a PM if you have additional issues.

I have no doubt that the transition will go smoothly.
The process is in very competent hands.
I hope that Leroy views this episode as one more accomplishment made possible only through his efforts and coordination.
Leroy is happy with the way things are going.

Re: Is this a die break on a 21 Peace?

I think it's a combination of damage and a small lamination.

Re: Meet your new Official Attributors

I am so heartened to hear that it's you three taking on this mantle and sharing this load, as you're all clearly so knowledgeable and passionate about die varieties. Congratulations! Will there be any change in the format of new designations to signify that they are post-LVA? Not my intention. It n...

Re: Meet your new Official Attributors

Sounds interesting and fun at the same time. Hopefully all the logistics can be ironed out and presented at the VAM Thing. A moderated Q&A session at the VAM Thing might be something to consider for the agenda. Not sure if it is possible, but a presentation from Michael Fey about the acquisition mi...

Re: Meet your new Official Attributors

All food for thought. As I said, lots of logistics to work out. I imagine we'll CC you and Brent to update the registry for changes.

Meet your new Official Attributors

I left this out of the previous announcement, because it hadn't been totally figured out yet. Going forward, Morgan dollars will be attributed by me and John Roberts, and Peace dollars will be handled by David Close. The exact logistics of this, including guidelines for submissions, will be worked o...

2022 Calendars Available!

My 2022 coin calendar is ready for shipping. Printing and postage costs went way up this year, unfortunately, so the price is now $20 (includes shipping in the US), which gets you a wall calendar with a different coin photo that I've taken for each month. The calendar is printed on heavy card stock ...

I have a few coins ready to send to LVA. Now what? And the best of days to Leroy. I will miss him, he is the best.
Treat this like the annual end-of-year moratorium on sending him stuff while the logistics are worked out for this process going forward.

Re: 1880-P VAM-1E/VAM-25 Digit in denticles?

First step would be to remove the dirt from between the denticles. I've never noticed the possibility of a MPD on those I've seen.

Wow! I take this to mean we should no longer send coins to LVA...is this correct?
Correct. Don't send him anything. If he still has coins headed his way, he'll process them, but treat this as you would the usual end-of-year break.

New VAM-e Sent - Michael Fey Buys LVA Assets

A new VAM-e has been sent to SSDC members. As this is a press release, I am also including a link to it here. No doubt there will be questions. I will monitor (and moderate if necessary) this thread for questions and have Michael respond en masse to the questions. Anything I can answer at this time,...

"Having Fun with LDS 1921-Ds" is the longer, more awkward title of the book, after all.

Nice coin! Welcome, and glad you're having fun with this little corner of the hobby! I was definitely more of a hoarder and date/mint collector for decades.

I like the clip. Stronger than many in that it actually shows the Blakesley effect quite well. Nice pick-up!
