Re: Rare 1878s vam 67 found

We thought we had this one figured out a few times,
But to know avail
Waiting for Messy to chime in and the other “experts” of 78-s
Our Vam 67’s turned out to be Vam 104’s
The only way to kill it is to somehow AQ the Discovery and send it back in to LVA.

Re: 1878-s VAM-7 unusual?

At least the 78-s Vam 7 is a Vam 7.
Is Vam 7 scarce? No, see them all the time
Now, is the holder legit? I’ve Never seen one before
Does it snap together?
The old adage comes true. “ Buy the Coin and not the holder”
Btw, I’ve failed this test, may times, when it comes to certain vams. 🤪

Re: 1878-S Long Nock meaning?

Most surviving 78-s LN’s (B-1) were thrown ( Literally) into circulation. As an example, Because of poor die preparation by an “ intern” , the Vam 60 Rev die only survived long enough to mint 1000 coins. There are Very few surviving high grade LN’s. The remainder are low grade and most were rotor- r...

Re: An Acidic Grading Set...

Hum, there are no known 64 or 65’s!
Now the 60 is possible with the current grading screws that are in place!
Lol The screws are so tight, I sent in a rare Vam for down grade for my 🙃Low ball set. It just got a down grade from Xf 40 to 30! I was just hoping for 35!!!!!
