Re: Found an 1898-O VAM-11A in my collection

Cheers bud, thank you for the welcome, as you can see from the picture, the angle is just shy of 15 degrees :( , would it have made for a new VAM had it reached 15? For a VAM to be listed as a new "Rotated Die" the specimen would need to be sent to LVA for his approval. LVA uses a special tool call...

Re: Found an 1898-O VAM-11A in my collection

Welcome aboard PeacemakerUK. Nice 1898-O VAM-11A there. The rotation looks like about 5 degrees CCW. A rotation of 5-10 degrees is common. The benchmark to qualify is 15 degree CW or CCW rotation. Last week I purchased an 1898-O in a INS holder and the reverse was rotated 5 degrees CCW. For a comple...

Re: A little bit of coin grading history!

I had sent this GLOBAL grading slab photo, for you to see Wayne. It doesn't show the coin photo, but has a photo of the Philadelphia mint and some interesting information, on the reverse of the slab, that was the reason they started minting the 1878 Morgan silver dollar. Bert Nice one Bert. Looks l...

Re: A little bit of coin grading history!

Very attractive 1898 O Morgan Dollar. First time I've seen that holder. Reminded me of the Canadian coin grading service "International Coin Certification Service" out of Toronto, Canada labeled as "ICCS". They grade and identify varieties on world coins - especially Canadian Dollars. Think the INS...

Cool slab. I like the holders that have a photo. I only was aware of ANACS doing that. Thank you!🐍
Just a little bit more info here. When ANACS left DC and moved to CO. most of the staff elected to stay behind (in DC). INS hired a good number of the ANACS folks.

Re: LVA

The Numismatic Scrapbook Magazine from April 1965 is really cool. Thanks for posting.
It may be the end of summer before we can send any coins to LVA. Here in the Heartland we have not been able to see the mother in-law for over two months.

A little bit of coin grading history!

Stopped by the local Coin Gallery today and picked up this nice 1898-O in a INS holder. INS (International Numismatic Society) holder. INS was the second grading company (1975). After ANACS left Washington, D.C. INS was formed. In 1985 they licensed the use of the photo slab shells from Accugrade an...

Re: A couple of memories for today

This is what America's brave men & women have fought and died for since 1775. We must never forget the price they paid. A special shout out to my double vet Dad. A B-17 lower belly turret gunner was tough.

Zero Inventory

Received a text last Thursday from the owner of the local Coin Gallery I shop at and the text contained two images of Morgan Dollars in red Paramount holders. The first one is a 1878-P VAM-134 LDS and the second one is a Redfield 1890-S (undetermined VAM). I stopped by last Saturday to check them ou...
