Re: Here's today's puzzle

That's actually quite amazing.
I haven't even heard of such a thing.
Has to have been some "thick patina".

Thanks for sharing JR. :D

Re: 1887 Potenial Vam 1B

Glad you are able to see the "T" and verify you have a VAM-3A. I can't speak for anyone here but I have also been guilty in seeing what my mind wants me to see...even if it's not there. Faint clashed "E's" in particular. 83-O 22A 87-P 1B and a real booger, 80-P 33A come to mind. You'll get it eventu...

Don't know how I did it and have never been able to re-create it again...not that I've tried.

Interested in your story. :popcorn:

Re: 1883-o proof like?

A very nice and clear example.

The 9 is clearly visible...I'd say a 60 on a good day.

Re: Unusual 1900-S, vam not found yet?
