Maybe a new pairing; double polish lines stand out on my P64 88, which shares obv with 112. Heck, we’re at 116, there’s room for more…

Re: 8TF VAM-14 Proof??

Does anyone have any information about VAM-14 having been struck with proof dies? I have never heard of an 1878 VAM-14 Proof and nothing about VAM-14 being a proof on VW. Well, here is the rest of the story: https://coins.ha.com/itm/proof-morgan-dollars/1878-8tf-1-pr62-ngc-vam-14/a/1357-3189.s?ic5=...

A huge Thank You!

I saw the list of SSDC registry awards presented at this year’s FUN Show, which due to personal reasons I was unable to attend. I noticed I got an Honorable Mention for my 1878 B2 reverse set. First, congrats to the All the award winners; truly some great sets put together by folks such as Dennis, B...

Re: 1878s Top 30 Rarity List

Re: 1878s Top 30 Rarity List

No interest here; already there are Top 30 and Top 30 complete sets, not based just on rarity. Population reports in SSDC registry for individual varieties are not entirely accurate either as lots of collectors don’t participate.

Looks like the extra engraved feathers are clear; thinking 77, but some of the ‘B’ reverse heavyweights need to chime in. :popcorn:
