A dealer I know had a role of MS 1882 O's he let me look through. It had 5 VAM 38 B's in it. They all looked to be MS 61 or 62's to me so I passed. I told him what they were but I think he ended up just selling the whole role as MS.
Thanks guys. I was shocked when I turned that one over. My take on the VAM 9 is that the reporter was there when the dies clashed and they shut down the press. He reported what was minted to that point, never considering they would start them up again creating the VAM 9A.
Image504.jpg Unbelievable that a dealer could mistake an 1878 8tf VAM 9 (1st die pair) for a 7tf. They are becoming increasingly tough to find in the wild. Well maybe not for Chris just the rest of us. I do feel fortunate about the mislabeled 2x2. I think it may have kept it off of others radar lon...
Go by the 14.4 sales information. The VAM-2A obverse was paired with a different reverse making the 14.4/A. So unless a very LDS shows up that has the obverse clashing removed, all 14.4s are really 14.4As. PCGS labels all 14.4As as 14.4. So again, the 14.4 sales information really reflects the sale...
Anybody have any idea what a MS 1878 VAM 14.4A goes for? I have had this coin for a few months now but haven't found any recorded sales. There are couple of 14.4's that sold on Ebay, would the 14.4A value be similar?
