There were No Shared Rev with The 1878 -S Vam 60
The reverse only lasted for 1000 copies.

These are fascinating details!
So it looks like there were only 1000 VAM 60s made?
If so, that would explain why they are so &@*%!! hard to find.

Re: PCGS Frustration

My Regular Service order (not economy) for crossovers was logged into the PCGS system on March 23, so I think it's been 69 business days of waiting so far. Sure makes the website's stated 50-day turnaround time look like a joke.

Re: 1878-cc Morgan with 140 deg CW rotated rev

Great coin Jeff! (I absolutely love it.) That is an unusually large amount of rotation; most of the examples I have seen were 75-90 degrees. These often come in Mint State grades; I recall seeing one many years ago in a PCGS MS67 holder. Yes it does have a premium -- a pretty significant one. My gue...

way OT: phone charger adapters?

I have a special hate for the way new cell phone models of the same brand often have different power supply "in" jacks, thereby rendering the company's old car chargers (which were too darn expensive in the first place) useless. Does anyone know if adapters could-should-do exist that would allow me ...

Re: 1921 P Morgan VAM 3A1B/3A1C

Confused by the paper trail on these. This thread indicates no tail feather gouge on 3A1c. The 3A1C attribution page heading very clearly says and shows that it has a gouge at the tailfeathers -- "1921-P VAM-3A1c Scribbling Die Scratches, Spiked Tail Feather, Die Gouges Stage 1" The old thread was,...

If it has the gouge from the tail it is either 3A1C, 3A2, 3A3 or 3A4.

bashing PCGS yet AGAIN

Here is a 3rd example of a 1921-D that PCGS has attributed as a VAM 1A TRU_T that is so not it's ridiculous. The first two I showed in recent months were jokes because they both still very clearly have most of the S showing: http://www.vamworld.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=6439&hilit=PCGS But this ...

Re: 1882 GSA Carson city grand snake history.

The NGC site has a cert. lookup function, and closeups of this coin were available. I'm curious what made them certain this is an 1882-CC, since the tops of the numerals are so distorted.

Re: Very Rare 1882 CC Morgan Off-Center

Saying "WOW!!" seems so ridiculously inadequate... but I just don't know what else to say. :o

If I've done my math correctly, the dimensions of the NGC holder are 8-3/8" wide by 10-3/8" tall.

Re: 1882-o 38-b value

They are not particularly rare. I see lots of folks trying to squeeze big prices out of them. And it does happen sometimes, which I think speaks volumes about how dangerously clueless some buyers are. For example: -- an ANACS-63 sold for $210 on eBay in Feb. '21 -- a PCGS-63 sold for $71 on eBay in...

Just a follow up - this coin is back up on EBay right now. (I returned it previously with explanation showing it was incorrectly attributed.) I just contacted seller, who said they had sent this coin back to NGC and questioned the VAM 8 assignment. NGC re-holdered it and returned it, again as a VAM...
