Re: Guess the Grade!

62; don’t like the black stuff or the obv mark below the chin; i.e., no eye appeal; as this is a common as dirt V33, I wouldn’t want this as part of my set!

Re: 1878 P Rev 79 VAM 225A - PCGS MS62 (not on holder)

IMO, the variety is not hard to find; most are PL; owned several; clashed LDS are tougher again IMO. So, I am in The Grey Sheet crowd…

Re: OT - Trade Challenge

Well, I am not up to the 50 coin challenge, but John's work has given me food for thought for expanding my 1878 model year dollar set; looks like that would be roughly another 25 or so holes to fill.. :roll:

Re: Coin Insurance

Mercer Consumer

Used for many years.

Material kept in bank vault; get asked every year on renewal where kept; suspect it would be higher if kept elsewhere.

Couple of SSDC registry issues

When new 78-s v115 added, 78-s set is ok, but 313 coin specialty set , First Year Morgan - Basic, the coin occupies the 78-s V1E slot

When recent 79-S rev 78 v135 was added (old V35a, which wasn’t part of the set), it now occupies both V134 and V 39 slots.

He has found some nice coins!

Still, given the popularity of the 79-S B reverse set along with incredible price increases the past few years, it’s surprising that it has been such a low profile…

How did this one fly so low under the radar, especially when such a high interest specialty set? I don’t remember much (any?) fanfare about its discovery in 2019. No discoverer listed on on the page on this site. Curious…

Re: 1879 s vam 35A rev of 78

OK, I see it’s now VAM 135; now the SSDC registry set(s) need to be tweaked (35A now 135). So what’s the story with this one? Ultra rare?? 2019 discovery but none in SSDC registry; hence, none of the top sets lay claim to having one or are there several out there and just combined with V35 populatio...
