Re: Meet your new Official Attributors

Mr. VanAllen has passed the torch to three of the most respected VAMmers in the VAM community. This is a great time to be a VAMmer.

A butter pick! I would not have thought of that on my own but when "googleing" butter pick - this is what comes up! Kudos to loincutter! Thanks
Your welcome!
I used to own one in a silverware set.

Re: 1884 vam-2a

Yes. It looks like an early die state example. The "E" looks well pronounced, since it fades lighter as the die progresses. Plus, any "E" reverse in mint state is or should be a $100 plus VAM.

Re: Opinions - is this 15 A or B - 1891 o

That is one tough VAM to find. Is it a cherry pick? Either way Congrats!

Re: a WOW 2021-D error

Not sure if that is a crack on the coin or the holder. It is still in its plastic holder and not until it is taken out of the holder will I believe it to be a die break/crack. Looks like plastic is cracked to me. JMO

Re: Favorite Non-List VAM

Wow! Really like the VAMs selected. Some did not realize were out there.
Maybe this could be a new set. Call it the Rodney Dangerfield Set. :D

Re: Questions about SSCD "Buffed Reverses" registry

The Buffed Reverses Set is (to me) a fascinating category in the VAM collecting world.
Thanks Fogie for taking care of this.

Nasty bag mark on the mint mark. There are some 84-O VAMs with filled mint marks. VAM 5 is the first that comes to mind. Far date, filled mint mark, not much of anything else to look at.
I think the other VAM with filled mintmark is VAM 39.

Favorite Non-List VAM

Since there are probably more than 5000 different VAMs listed, and most do not ever become part of a major list set(Top 100, Hot 50, Hit List 40 etc....), I thought I would start a thread to see what is your favorite non-list VAM. There are many interesting VAMs that many probably do not know about,...

Re: Coin prices

Definitely a seller's market. I have sold off most of my duplicates with no problem but have yet in the last few months find anything of interest to me that is not priced higher than normal. It is a cycle that has been long over due though. Hope sellers can make some profits.
