Re: OT: Upheaval in the card world

Off topic but of interest.
I don't collect cards, but I enjoy learning.
I find VAMmers educated, and diverse in their outside interests.
Thanks for sharing.

Re: USPS PCGS lost package

The USPS is apparently taking on new responsibilities and delivery of your mail is no longer a priority.

Re: what would you do if,,,,,,,

Recently I made a mistake on ebay.
The customer pointed it out and I made it right.
No hard feelings.
It happens when you are trying to do several things at once and it is three in the morning.

I believe that this is a legitimate historical piece, unlike the current mint souvenirs. It doesn't matter what your political, ethnic, religious or racial affiliation is, this commemorates an important event. Good or bad. In my opinion it has far greater investment potential than, reproductions or ...

Re: PCGS pop report mystery

When consumers purchase labels instead of coins, merchants will supply labels instead of coins.
My opinion of the American consumer is so low that I believe Miley Cyrus labels would sell well.
