Re: Ebay separating from Paypal

That would mean that those of us who purchase coins from Ebay sellers and submit payment through PayPal would be paying by Credit card or debit card. I would think credit card as opposed to debit. Or, will Ebay set up their own PayPal like program?

Could This Be an 1881-O VAM-40 Not a VAM-1H

I just received a Morgan that has been certified as an 1881-O VAM-1H. But, it could be a VAM-40 instead. This specimen has Obverse beveled fields, a spiked 8, as well as the inner wing gouges seen on 1H. In addition, however, this specimen has doubling to the right inside ear wall and at the bottom ...

You definitely caught that feature. Sometimes it takes quite a few shots to capture what you want people to see.

Re: 1878 S VAM 17 Somthing Progression Photos

I would think worn away rather than polished away. Later mintage seems right to me.

I see the remains of the gouge on a VAM-17 that I acquired.

Re: 1888-P VAM-7??

Loren, I'm sure that post is archived somewhere. Because Mr. Roberts' response to my question about "state" vs. "stage" made it so much easier for me to understand the differences between the two terms, I stashed away his reply in a special spot in my computer so that it would always be available fo...

1888-P VAM-7??

I’m thinking a Morgan I just acquired is either a 7B or 7C. Based on how I read and view the photos presented in the 7 and 7A Pages, neither one of those varieties contain upper or lower tail feather gouges. I also took the 7D out of the running because my Morgan doesn’t contain the additional gouge...

Re: My 1881 S WOW vam 1B is a TOP POP, I think?

Sandlor has great eyes for Vams, Bert. He also notices those deer in your woods; but, they have nothing to fear from Sandlor. He can chase all he wants, but he'd never catch up to them.

Hub Doubling?

1880-P VAM 50A:

There's slight doubling of the letters STATES and more noticeable doubling of the letters in IGWT. Is this hub doubling or strike doubling?

I would appreciate your help. Thanks.
