Re: 1878-s VAM 49 "funky feathers"

Like just about any VAM with even modest collector interest, certified examples of VAM 49 sell for more money than raw coins, since the time, postage, grading cost and hassle have already been taken care of. PLishness in lower AU grades also becomes pretty much irrelevant, and can be mistaken for cl...

Once you have that bulge, it's 1A2. 1A4 is just 1A1 plus the gouge at the A.

Thanks very much John. It'll be coming your way for a PCGS bulk deal. Is there still time for the next one?

which 1891-O VAM 1A is this?

Modest grade, but I think plenty clear for a VAM attribution. I'm torn between 1A2 and 1A4. Thanks for your input.

Scarce coin that seldom comes up for VAM-specified sale, and this is the highest graded example of just 3 I know about: 1890-S 2B (26A) 61 ANACS Oct-16 E $90 1890-S 2B (26A) 58 ANACS Oct-11 CS $400 1890-S 2B (26A) 55 ANACS Feb-17 E $65 ANACS, if anyone, should have this in its population report.

Is the obverse just as liney?

I finally found the listing again. The obverse isn't as bad, but the strike is poor:

Re: My FUN score - Pics

I saw the 14.7 slowly and up close. The obverse is all there for PL/DMPL, but the reverse just doesn't make it.
The seated dollar is nice, too.

What a day at FUN!!

Re: 1921-P VAM 7... gone or changed?

Dennis, I will email you a copy of LVA's letter to me, now that you have the 1N that I sent to him for this submission. I will also email you copies of his letters for two 21-P Discovery Coins that you now have. That's very kind of you Lee. I appreciate being able to keep them with the coins. :D

1921-P VAM 7... gone or changed?

I see there was a change made in 2019. Was VAM 7 changed, or killed entirely? Please enlighten me.

Dennis, do any guides need to be updated? I'll take care of the update on the page.

Wayne:
I think both of my scribbles photos (for 3FR and 3GP) are much better than what are currently in the D2 scribbles guide, so they should at least be added to LVA's images. Thanks!
