Re: Silver Dollar 1904 O

"when is a doubled profile a doubled profile?" I've had similar questions concerning date placement - near, far or slanted? And mint mark position and tilt. My education is a work in progress. As for PUP photos to be added to the VAM listing pages, I think Ihnumis1 has provided a few, especially the...

Re: 1921-p Morgan "meteor like" VAM?

Aside from VAM identification, you may want to address the green. Acetone is first, and I've had good results following up with Verti-Care.

Re: Silver Dollar 1904 O

You're on the right track, I believe that most of us do not want to deprive you of the joy of making your own identification. Great pictures and attention to detail.

Re: New CAC TPG

My take is that competition benefits the consumer, making the competition work a little harder.
And that a major investment into a new company indicates a faith in the industry.

Re: O/T New 2023 Bullion mkt POST

I heard some where that gold moves first, but silver moves farther. I can see some reasoning behind that assertation. As usual I could be all wet, but my concept of the uses of gold is primarily for international settlements of debt, and jewelry. With the current saber rattling, I perceive an increa...

Re: Coin Photo Viewer Windows 11

I exclusively use Irfanview, and it has served me well for over 10 years. My choice was not based on a technical comparison of photo processors, but the ease of use and easy learning.

Re: Merry Christmas

I'm in central Wisconsin, and have always had an affinity for those in Buffalo. Similar weather conditions, but as a community of 20K, we just don't get the coverage. Then again, we don't have the accompanying problems of a larger community. Stay warm and be safe.

Just wanting to wish everyone a merry Christmas.
The snow has arrived and temperatures well below zero.
My driveway. And it has been snowing for a week.

Re: High OL SILVER- Finally !!!

That I do not comment in a timely fashion should not be construed as a lack of interest. Always interested. Not a big player, but a small stacker. As I have indicated in the past, I place my faith in real money and not in the purveyors of paper.

Re: are eBay buyers clueless?

Are ebay buyers clueless? Yes. And so is 98% of the rest of the population. I'll spare you my theories on how this came about. But notice the "food" in the carts of grossly overweight people at the grocery store. Look at the big homes a young couple will purchase just to keep up appearances. Notice ...

Re: Stolen coins

Greatest sympathies for your misfortune, and hope that your coins will be recovered.
My attitude towards criminal behavior of this sort is such that it would not be acceptable to detail the punishment warranted on this forum.
