Re: Covid Shots

Also let me add, for the "everything carries risks" crowd. I'm a construction worker, roofer to be precise, and my professional life is defined by safety requirements and regulations. Yet every MFing construction site I walk into I see maskless yahoos everywhere. They'll wear a hard hat for ten hour...

Re: New Member with a Possible New VAM - 1922-P Peace Dollar - Extra Olive Branch?

Definitely clashing. This is a very common clash on Peace dollars and also the one that gets more new Peace dollar members here than any other... this clash for Peace dollars and the "volcano" clash for Morgans. In short, it's not noteworthy, but you saw it so keep learning and looking! ;) I'm a Mor...

Re: OT: Upheaval in the card world

Bob, the graded market already tanked... BIGTIME... several years ago. This is the resurgence! Seriously, if you have any graded or nice rcs of any of the 80s-90s megastars it may be worth digging them out. Been selling crappy set rcs of guys like Rodgers, M. Trout and Steph Curry for $60, $80, $180...

Re: OT: Upheaval in the card world

Triggered also by a mega-boom in card values. 6ish years ago I started looking into cards again after a long break and, to my surprise, many of the top rookies from my youth (Griffey, Frank Thomas, Barry Sanders, etc.) were selling dirt cheap even in certified gem holders, so I started picking them ...

Re: An insane 1882-O Vam-17B wow vam.

If I were ranking all the VAMs in the WOW! set by rarity, the 17B would be the one I'd rate as most common. The VAMs in the set were included because they are REALLY cool, rarity and value really played an incredibly small part in that (honestly, rarity and value played a bigger part in one that WAS...

Re: Revisiting the "WHATS A 1881 O VAM 33B WORTH?" question (but as a die progression question)

Lee is correct and that discrepancy with the mint mark was the first thing that caused me to question if the "33a" was truly a 33a. This means he is also correct that the 50a is not related to the 33 die pair. Gary, does your coin have "cuddlings" (small rim cuds around the obverse)? If so, it is a ...

I'll chip in my 2 cents and say the 41c, meh, what ever any 7/8 "weak" in 55details would bring and, though I don't come across many 1D's I think only a modest premium at best.

Yup, SUPER tough! This is one of those where one is found every couple years, maybe?
