Re: 1878-S Attribution Help Needed

Thanx for the help. The coin recently sold for lots of money on eBay, I bid on it without figuring out what it was.

Re: JRL?

Having an affinity with flat-chested eagles, I believe the feller will tout a 1878 Philadelphia 7-tail-feathered B1 Long Nock among his 2020 list, as he hadn’t done so in his previous lists. He may pick the new 1878-P VAM-82A, is my best guess.

Re: 1878-S VAM-111

Offering the coin until the end of February 2020, if it is unsold by then, then it can remain in my collection.

Re: O/T BULLION TRADING FUTURES

Platinum alloyed with gold is the hardest metal known, one would think that due to this reason, and due to the absoulte rarity of platinum compared to gold, platinum should be more seriously considered as a viable investment.

Re: 1878-S VAM-111

About the only trade items I am interested in are graded SF Long Nocks, especially VAMs 58 through 72, or SF Long Nocks from the Gene L. Henry collection. Will entertain lower cash offers.

1878-S VAM-111

Raw 1878-S VAM-111, appears G04, $3000 US. Will consider trades of graded San Francisco Long Nocks, perhaps Gene Henry Long Nocks.

Re: San Francisco Long Nock February Sale

Well it is that magical time of the year again when people start to prepare for the annual February San Francisco Long Nock sale, perhaps done in part to help cover their economic losses accumulated in December due to their purchase of unnecessary junk for largely ungrateful family members.

Re: O/T BULLION TRADING FUTURES

People work all their lives trying to make money, I think it wise to read some books on the issue. I can't recommend these books enough, all are great reads, the latter three are horror stories. The books are purged from most libraries and instead these libraries provide books encouraging you to emb...

Re: Potential purchases, opinions? Cleaned, possible grade?

Sometimes Great Collections is selling slabbed Morgan and Peace Dollars for less than the cost of slabbing the coin, often they are selling for just a little more than the cost of slabbing the coin. So why buy ungraded coins... unless to obtain a specific VAM.

Re: New 1878-S VAM??

Consider plopping down $15 to obtain a USB microscope... the photos you provided are not adequate to determine features of the coin.
