Re: Thanksgiving

I will be having Thanksgiving with my best friend of 55 years now, and his wife. They have invited me every year for the last 15 years, and this will be my first opportunity to accept. I've been instructed not to bring anything. I assume this is because she is generous and accommodating, and because...

I'm not enough of an insider to understand, "records for NGC-certified pieces just don’t apply here."

Re: Heritage Auction Web Site is down due to Malware Attack

I thought the bidding at GC was a little higher.
Connection, coincidence or just my imagination?

Re: Double ,Triple Hair Ends !!!!

Allowing for die/coin wear, I'd go along with doubling or tripling.

Re: 1921-P VAM 13A pix & question

Die is showing wear, as well as the coin.
But for a quick and dirty, I think this is it.
As usual, it's more apparent "in hand."

1922 VAM 7A

I swung by my local B&M to pick up a little bullion just in case to economic Doom and Gloom people are correct. And my dealer has added a new catagory of dollars that can be purchased at the current spot price of silver. Theses are a little better than the real culls. I quickly picked out a few that...

Re: VERY VERY OT, this is why I hate him.

To a lesser degree, why would you take the car to a mechanic to have the nuts removed? It seems like driving with all that under the hood might risk greater damage. But to a greater degree, learn to process the nuts. Back in 1985 I was renting a place that had a walnut tree. In the fall, I picked up...

Re: Is this Collar Clash listable?

My mentor may have coined the phrase "die poop." Not every little change in the die is worthy of a new VAM designation. But due to personal constraints, I find that an investigation and recording of changes within a die may be useful later. I guess that is a die study. It's what I can do, and it's w...

Re: Is this Collar Clash listable?

John, I sincerely appreciate your input. I'm not shopping for the answer I want to hear, I'm shopping for intelligent input before wasting Leroy's time. I think you've helped me accomplish that. The VAM in question is the 1904-O VAM 46 die pair #1. On the page Morgan VAMs by Date , the collar clash ...

Re: Is this Collar Clash listable?

I intentionally omitted details of the coin so as not to create any bias..
And as I don't want to waste Leroy's time, I thought I would ask here first.
I'll allow a little time for others to advise, then reveal the VAM.
Thanks for the input.

Is the collar clash large enough to be listed as a separate VAM?
