Re: Pcgs vams sold

Larry,

Great job on collecting, and on your PCGS sets. Bet, it was hard to part with the 1889-P VAM-23A.

Re: 1889 VAM 15 extra ears on 8's. LDS?

The VAM-9 and VAM-38 are probably dup listings. Thanks for the additional photos. Think you may have an MDS. Can you take some shots of the UTF's and bow?

Can you take a close-up of the 9 in the date? Look at 9 in the date closely and see if you notice something just a little bit different. Finding an un-clashed Reverse in the 1889-P series is not uncommon. I think it says something about the 1889-P Reverse dies. Here are a few examples of un-clashed ...
