Re: San Francisco Long Nock February Sale

I am wondering if anybody is considering offering their Gene L. Henry San Francisco Long Nocks for sale. I have a collection of these and desire to keep his collection and legacy intact. It would be a wonderful birthday present if I could obtain another, this month.

Re: San Francisco Long Nock February Sale

VamHelsing; Just confused I guess. So you're NOT going to make the market??? Just what would happen to the market if I offered over 116 SFLN's on eBay at once? The prices of SFLN's would fall... by flooding the market I would make the market fall. There are generally about 10 properly graded SFLN's ...

Re: San Francisco Long Nock February Sale

VamHelsing » Sun Feb 02, 2020 7:36 pm What happened to buying 90% of all LN's listed on the internet and making the market as you stated earlier in this thread? I was referring to February 2019, in that month I estimate that I purchased about 90% of the SFLN's offered. I treated myself because it wa...

Re: San Francisco Long Nock February Sale

VamHelsing: "I see there's currently at least 55 LN's on ebay. So you're going to buy 50 of them, right?" Most coins offered are details coins that are damaged in some way, I have enough of those. I do sometimes purchase RAW coins in the hope that they grade. I''ll try to buy all the good VAM-60's a...

Re: San Francisco Long Nock February Sale

I'm getting a bit picky... I have seven 1878-s VAM-26 in VG10 (3xANACS, 1xNGC, 2xPCGS, 1xPCI), I'm considering slowing down on my VAM-26 VG10 collection. I have most every long nock being offered in the grade it is being offered in, while those I lack are tending to be overpriced. I'm like a magpie ...

Re: San Francisco Long Nock February Sale

My hope is that I will wake up tomorrow morning and there will be great multitudes of San Francisco Long Nocks being advertised for auction on eBay… collectors will realize that selling off their SFLN collections will assist them to raise the funds to focus on their favorite coins, whether they be 8...

Re: Looking for wisdom and insight on this 1927-D Peace dollar on how to best sub this coin.

I'll turn this into a contest and so those who guess correctly can win a “details” San Francisco VAM-62 Long Nock. In the event that two or more VAMworld members correctly guess the grade, I will supply additional “details” SF Long Nocks to the first seven correct entrants. You must chose a single n...

Re: 1878-S Attribution Help Needed

The 1878-S VAM-1i is listed in the “4th Star Broken, r in Trust Unbroken” category, could this VAM possibly be moved to “4th Star Unbroken, r in Trust Unbroken”category? Has anybody classified the 1878-S VAMs by degree of slant in the date? Which 1878-S VAMs have the greatest slant? It is rather dif...

Re: Looking for wisdom and insight on this 1927-D Peace dollar on how to best sub this coin.

Slider: A term meaning the coin simulates a higher grade than it really is. Often a slider has been cleaned, treated, or whizzed to give the appearance of being uncirculated. Worth less than the coin that has not been cleaned or treated. (Cited from: https://www.cointalk.com/threads/what-is-a-slider...

Re: 1878-S VAM 29

Too many somewhat special coins to chase… Top 100, Hot 50, Hit List 40, Kimpton 12, Elite Clashed, WOW!, Klaes 51, Top 30 1878-S, John Roberts lists… lots of somewhat special coins are on lists (such as doubled ears, micro or oval O’s and infrequently reeded coins). And there are coins that should h...

Re: Ebuyer Beware!

My experience is that usually it is PCGS that gets the attribution wrong (as opposed to ANACS and NGC), this 1878-S purported to be a VAM-60, should be an embarassment for NGC. If the seller gets the $1499.99 he or she is asking, could result in negative feedback and a loss of income that exceeds th...

I thought they were $5 or $20 pieces, I did not know that. Excuse me.
