Re: My Brand New E... !

Big Suggestion: Take a couple of pictures to show size perspective as he will love to see them when he is older. Have mom lay down and put the babies foot next to mom's and take a picture. Another great one is to have the babies hand wrapped around mom's finger. When he gets older he will be amazed...

Re: What is the best way to buy Morgans

Coin stores or coin shows are best for looking for VAMs as most dealers today don't know much and you can see them in hand. Advertisements for rolls that grade a certain way generally don't make the grade. If you are buying for fun and want the VAM search then stick with the Morgans or Peace. If str...

Re: LITTLE FLORENCE OREGON COAST COIN SHOW

I've been to this show so agree with Scott it is worth your time. Lot of nice people and not much knowledge about VAMs so good for pickin'. I can't make it this year as I have a reunion to go to on Saturday up north.

Re: O/T Modern Day coin Frauds/The very largest & Worse

Very interesting about the guy. Back when I dealt with postage stamps there was a similar crook who shill bid most of his auctions and altered stamps all the time. He got caught and now sells coins but I can't remember his name or handle as it has been a couple of years since I ran into him on the b...

Re: R factors & I factors

Another wrinkle is, and I'll use myself as the example: I have several thousand SDs and have vammed the majority. Some are TPG so they show up in their inventory but if I put them into the SSDC wouldn't they be double counted? I have many that are not TPG just because I haven't unlimited amounts of ...

1878 P Vam 164 Additional Pic?

I have a 1878 P V164 with something not mentioned on the page but could help in identifying. The question is, is it okay to add the picture? For those that might have one is this "line in denticles" on yours?

Re: OBTW

Yes, we are at a cross roads. Apathy got us here and now we need to wake up and make sure we vote and speak out. Freedom is not free as history has shown. Get active or we will truly go down a destructive path culminating in an ugly battle some day.
