Re: WTB: 1878 VAMs 85 & 86 & (188 & 222A in MS)

Always grateful for that gentleman's agreement; served us both well over the years. :) Yep, you never know what gets put up on eBay or for that matter on GC. Don't give up on Heritage, either; bought an unattributed 78-CC V19A PCGS MS 63 in their buy it now listing for common $$. Time and diligence ...

Re: 1878 P VAM-134 EDS No Polishing lines

Yeah, I was responsible for getting LVA to update the V134 listing several years ago. Actually the EDS is 2-sided DMPL or maybe PL , and there is a 2-sided PL slightly later die state with a few polish lines visible and there is the traditional one with all the die polish lines. I have all 3 die sta...

Re: Morgan 1878 P VAM 22?-?

C reverses can be tough; from photo, looks as if U of UNITED is doubled on inside? If so, then C3b reverse; with broken 4th star V 222, 222A, 222B, 222C & 222D (which you ruled out) would be ones to focus on.

As an afterthought, the finest known V86 was posted raw unattributed on and bought by a knowledgeable collector; you never know when an heir will put up grandpa’s coins for sale. Keep your chin up and when you least expect it something really good will come along!

Re: WTB: 1878 VAMs 85 & 86 & (188 & 222A in MS)

Am fortunate to own 3/4 in MS; V86 is only XF-45. Got the 188 many years ago when 3 came in the market unexpectedly out of nowhere. At the time many of us were thinking there was a roll, but only the 3 were offered; mine is 62; other 2 are 63. Bidders at the time were wary; turned out to be a bargai...

Re: 1878 rev of 79 vam 210

Nice coin; V 210 is scarce, but can find with a little effort; but any C reverse in 65+ is hard to come by. V210 comes PL / DMPL. Those are quite scarce in my opinion.

Staying put; my company plans on many support staff working from home thru at July. Temperature checks on the way in and masks and social distancing are the norm.
