I found it - in my "I Don't Know What It Is" box.
Kissov: Yep, it looks like we both have the same mystery that LVA needs to solve.

This sort of looks to me like VAM 1BO.
Tom: I compared this to my 1BO Discovery Coin; it is not a match. Thanks for looking, though.

Re: New pixs for 1921-P VAM 3AH (and a surprise)

Wait...didn't you just kill VAM 3AH, showing that it's part of the 3A family? Oh wow! How quickly I forget. Thank you for that reminder! But we now have a can of worms. The EDS coin I sent to LVA that caused the de-listing of 3AH has no scratch from the wreath to the left star. He split the old VAM...

New pixs for 1921-P VAM 3AH (and a surprise)

Here are two new scribbles shots for VAM 3AH (it really is the same coin, changing the light source point direction made a huge difference!): 38054503 scribbles 1.jpg 38054503 scribbles 2.jpg And in addition to having the die scratch from the wreath to the reverse left star, my coin has this very co...

Re: Break out Question

If you go the regrade route it can't come back any less than 65.
If you break it out everything is in play.

I've gotten upgrades many times submitting them in the holder.

1921-P D1 scribbles help needed

Two slow trips through the VW attribution guide and once through the LVA/Crae book came up fruitless. In addition to the obvious big scribbles on and around the two "speed bumps", I've highlighted some older/weaker scribbles. The die polishing lines indicated in photo #2 are quite bold. Can anyone h...

The unattributed coin at the end of the D1 Crack and Break Guide appears to be VAM 112A.

Yes, it certainly does.
Nice catch!

Re: grading help

I'm inclined to grade them slightly higher... AU55 and MS61/62

The coin posted by Roger is easily the best-struck 1921 Peace I have ever seen.

That coin definitely needs to go back to PCGS for holder attribution and 2nd finest graded status.

Re: 1889-O VAM-1A1

I have to start by saying WOW!! That VAM in high AU grades is very tough, and anything in MS is the stuff of ringing bells and flashing lights. I'm going to show both 1A and 1A1 prices, since grading companies don't always differentiate between them. Prices have been all over the board, so your gues...
