Re: Darkside milestone achieved

Thanks Terry, I don't think I've even tried to form up a 'complete' set. Same is true for the Top 100

Re: 1878-CC VAM-12 does exist

Stop by the ANACS table with it. I should be able to ID it in short order. Guarantee it's not VAM 12

And if you don't want to wait, post a couple of pictures

I find Cage #9 with 'Rusted Dolls' particularly interesting

Re: any 1886-O experts?

Looks like there's a die gouge in the first left cluster above the NE of ONE. Didn't find a match in the first pass thru the listings

Re: 1900-O Help sought

It reinforces my repetitive point about not liking the near vs normal description. The original listing makes no mention of date position. But I'll go ahead and put a DPIS notation on the page

Re: 1900-O Help sought

Near vs normal will cook your brain if you let it. It's irrelevant here because the VAM 28 date is plated in the VAM book. Enough is captured in the image to positively determine it's a match.

Re: My Every Two Year ANACS Submission Returns

BTW, that 80 VAM 1A2 is probably worth sending back in for grade review with your next order.

Re: My Every Two Year ANACS Submission Returns

Doug's reholder due to Rottweiler damage may end up on the NSDR website sometime soon. I'm planning on doing a series of brief articles for the organization. I'll post notice when it actually happens. It will take something resembling free time so it might be a while

'Dubious' is unofficial. This has come up multiple times for a variety of pieces. Please take VAM World with a grain of salt.

Re: O/T Hiccup in the ASE registry

I'm not happy that I know this, but, the (mintmark) labels are the result of being able to distinguish mint of origin by the green monster banding and serial numbers. Once out of the box, that information is lost. If you find yourself not caring, you're probably right.

Another year has passed and Dec 1 is rapidly approaching again. Brush up those sets before the deadline.....
