Re: I'M A BUYER LOOKING FOR UPTICK IN METALS MKTS

I'd say your uptick arrived. I'm more of a stacker than a market speculator, so an increase in metal prices leaves me with mixed feelings. On one hand an increase in price makes it harder to stack, but it does reinforce my belief that the market needs a correction.

Re: is G.C. taking over?

I believe that GC is on the right track to taking over, and there are several things they could do to hasten the process. One, might be to find a mutually beneficial agreement with ANACS to promote VAMs, as PCGS and NGC only recognize a small percentage of all VAMs. Two, might be to invest in better...

Re: Did I do good?

Clean face and clean bird. I would give it a minimum of MS64. Probably PL and maybe DMPL, depending on the photograph. But I'm still learning.

It would be cool if "Life Member" could be added for those who qualify.
I really like that idea. It's sort of the green bean of polo shirts.

Re: I don't usually go for raw low ball $

I did. Cost me $11. But that was a few years ago. If I recall correctly, it was the first '83-CC VAM-2 registered with the SSDC. All part of the fun.

Re: I'M A BUYER LOOKING FOR UPTICK IN METALS MKTS

I'm not sure I understand the problem. A discussion about metal prices, past present and future, is a logical extension of our collective interests. After all, I did not see any objections to other topics that were not VAM related. Threads have been posted concerning the structure of the mints, the ...

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...

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.

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.
