Yeah, I also don't have this. Or the 'development' tab on the navigation pane.

Think we just got an image of a work in progress that we should say thank you for in advance.

Oops. I think I need to get a cat back into a bag. :oops:

There is no price guide for Peace in the SSDC listings.
I must have a special access then:

Re: New CAC TPG

There's also plenty of room on that label to make the serial number a couple of point sizes bigger for easier reading.

Speaking of... what's with the goofy gap preceeding the last two digits in the serial number shown above?

Re: 1880-O Vam 6C

On second look, I no longer think the 64 and the 64+ are the same coin. Instead I recall an 64+ being incorrectly attributed as a vam 6C, when it was actually a common 6A. It is probably now in a 6A holder and removed from the 6C pops. That is an excellent possibility! I only record sales as they a...

Re: 1921-D VAM-1J LDS Values

I'm not sure about whether this is a just 'regular' VAM 1J LDS, or if it's the very LDS VAM 1J that is most desirable. I'd love to know what @messydesk and @vampicker have to say.

Nice photos, BTW! We can always use more of those around here.

Re: OT Grading Sets

There was a bonus to doing my grading set: I co-discovered the first new 1895-S VAM in many years -- VAM 1A (recently changed to VAM 6A). Then-PCGS president David Hall even put "VAM 1A Discovery Coin" on the holder. :D

Because threads are better with pictures:

Re: OT Grading Sets

Quite a few years ago I finally finished a grading set of 1895-S in PCGS holders – every grade from Poor-01 to AU58. I still have the set. It was the best grading education I've ever had.

Re: 1921-D VAM-1J LDS Values

Not being on a popular collecting "list" seriously raises the "who cares?" question for VAM 1J. And the huge run-up in higher Mint State 1921-D prices since covid (MS64s used to be $100, now they're often over $400) makes premiums a guessing game for just about any 1921-D VAM. Plus, from what I have...

Re: 1921-D JOH-25 Small Breaks D, S and S

The huge problem is, the 1921-D Die Crack Break Guide is horribly not up to date. Only 77 different VAMs are represented in it, out of the 228 that currently exist.

Re: 1921 S vam 1B3 in AU53

I have no prices in my database for VAM 1B3 (which is scarce)... I only have prices for 1B3A (which is ultra-rare). I am skeptical about which VAM the cheapest two sales in the list below actually were, because the prices weren't appropriate: 1921-S 1B3A 62 PCGS Aug-12 H $3,055 1921-S 1B3A 55 ANACS ...
