Re: Now I have one....buhahahahahha: 1882 VAM 20

I dont believe it. They never minted any Morgan Dollars after 1878. We all know this to be a fact. :) :roll:

Re: Have you ever been "VAMboozled" ?

I remember the early days of collecting Morgans. I learned quick that there are 3 ways to learn. Paying, pain and knowledge. I still get suckered for a V16 every once in a while, because of bad pictures. Its much worse when a 3rd party grading company gets it wrong.

Link doesnt take one to your listings. Just to ebay page. It used to as I've followed it there before. Maybe a new link to your page. tiny

i was just on the internet archive the other night and came across a member's list but didn't pursue it. a lot of the links still work, a lot don't.

kinda fun seeing the vw 1.0 site again.

I looked at wrong line -- tbconcrete has a MS 62 V-112.
My coin is still raw and struck through. I have a handful of coins I need to get graded. Should fill some holes in my 78S Set.

That big dot in the ear is a dead giveaway for V36. Did not look for V36B, but that easy for you.

Re: 1885-S VAM-6 Denticle Impressions?

do you have that coin in-hand? the odds of those being raise are pretty small. i don't know how much you know about vams/coins/errors etc but i think there is a STRONG chance the hits just pushed up the metal a bit. that kind of thing has been posted here and sometimes it can appear very deceptive. ...

Re: 1878s VAM-109

What Lew said. But it sounds like you already have all your answers. My 5 vary in detail from vf20 to au55. Again, sounds like you need to post some pictures. Your attitude is why many rarely want to help some folks. You got all the answers and ask for, with a VAM King attitude, someone to tell you ...

Re: 1878s VAM-109

Your second question was order of production. Discounting it now is fine. But it matters as being 1st used on V109 then there is very little chance of a heavy polishing to create the die state you asked about. You are seeing what isnt there. Thanks Lew and Ln for your contributions. They probably ha...

Re: 1878-S Vam 62 (Long Nock)

Tim, The BIN was $235. If it grades it will be a home run. Sent it off to PCGS this afternoon. I love hearing that. I looked at 78S VAMs for 3-4 hours aday after working a 12 hr day. The hunt is more than the results. Thats what I think VAMs are about. Its about finding that special coin for common...

Re: 1878-S Vam 62 (Long Nock)

Thats a big coin. There wont be many in higher grade, if it grades. Hope it grades for you. We all want to know the BIN price. lol just for a kick in the ass for us who paid going money for the VAM.
