Re: Registering finds in the 'wild' versus bought attributed coins?

I have no way of telling which of my VAMs was caught in the wild & which came with an attribution. I will say that I have a crap load of each! There are some memorable finds and a great many that came to me misattributed. Most of the coins I get lately are misattributed as I am now looking for more ...

Yes - the 64 is mine. I have only had 1 more in hand and it was well before "its discovery" - I was not able to own that one. Worked out well 4 me to wait.

That is a tough coin for sure! Welcome to the club - there are not many of us that can say we have one of them! Grade?

Re: 1900 p.... VAM-Misstrike- Error- What is it?

I would opt for ANACS. Most likely to get it right. PCGS (in my opinion) would take a glance at it and dismiss it outright. I would really like to hear ANACS verdict.....

That is not something I would say - at least for anyone BUT me. I am no longer good with beer for breakfast - but I was for years!

Re: Calling ALL VAMMers - Rotated dies

when entering a coin into the registry there is an option (now) to check for rotated die nd how much rotation. additionally there is a way to modify an exsisting entry.

Re: Help with 1886-P (Eight in Denticles)

It may also be a good idea to remember that when the dies were made it was very often the case that drinking beer was safer that drinking water. The practice of drinking beer at lunch was very common and did not carry the same stigma that we assign to said practice today.

Re: Calling ALL VAMMers - Rotated dies

The VAMworld page is great but I know there are some that are not on same - that is why I am "crowd sourcing". There are no Peace dollars on that page and I know of no rotated Peace dollars... I have no idea of who Mike C. is or how to get a hold of him....

Calling ALL VAMMers - Rotated dies

Since shortly after the SSDC registry went live there have been a number of folks that wanted a 'Rotated Die" set added. That may come to fruition. I need to know what VAMs are known with rotated dies - Please let me know if you know..... Thanks!
