Re: SSDC 8TF registry question

Ray, based on the comments it looks like, not listing a VAM is based upon the knowledge of many collectors and the information found or determined for die studies. In the 8 TF and the information on the 1878 V-86 its a matter of record. If a coins die pair is clashed and a second die pair is then st...

Re: SSDC 8TF registry question

Allen, The 1889 CC VAM 4a doesn't exist. In my post above is the only way Leroy will de list the coin. 4 years ago an MS-62 coin was at a Heritage sale I printed images and all and held the coin in-hand. The coin hammered for over 20K. I sent the information to Leroy as well as the reason I didn't b...

Re: SSDC 8TF registry question

nread post by LateDateMorganGuy » Mon Feb 04, 2019 10:25 pm I am not sure what the answer is here. This could be a slippery slope so to speak. While I can understand this statement, I personally have a discovery coin that was a 2 for one discovery that shouldn't be. One of the coins will never be f...

Re: Please Check you 1878 P VAM 14.8 coins

I just cant make it out on my AU coins. I personally don't remember this ever being a PUP, and I never really looked at all the strong polishing lines in the reverse fields

Please Check you 1878 P VAM 14.8 coins

Below are some photos of my 14.8 , and it has a few things that are not on my non PL coin and I don't remember this stuff on the Proof I sold to Ash. This coin has a light gouge or polishing burn line running thought the "O" of "OF" and it has rather deep polishing lines everywhere in the fields on ...

When Was the 1881 O V-18a De Listed?

I was looking thought some of me discovery coins today, after someone asked a question about 1. I noticed the 1881 O V-18a is not present. I have the ANACS discovery coin labeled as the VAM-18a that has PL reverse fields and is coin in the plate photo on the VAM 18 page. I also noticed the 1921 S VA...

Here are photos of this coin without lighting that PCGS uses in imaging. This coin in hand is not un-attractive or lacking luster.

Early 1880 P VAM 53 Check Mark in a solid AU Proof Like

Well here is one I had hoped would garner the extremely rare PCGS grade of AU Proof Like, but nope it AU QC. and this thing is no question an AU Proof like. But its also a true VAM 53 Check Mark, no clashing and the SSDC registry has an MS-65 but the images of that one makes it a more common 53a,

Re: Sorry This coin is Not getting Dipped

I understand, but I sill have an issue with the fact I own other toned PCGS graded coins that look just like the 1st one. Its the inconsistency in standards on color as well as PL and DMPL that drives me up a wall. I sold a toned 1888 O to Ash a few years back, I had to send it in 3 times, and it wa...

Re: Sorry This coin is Not getting Dipped

The dealer that I bought this one from pulled it out of a Wittman dollar type date book of 1878 - 1890. I don't know how long the person that sold this to him had been collecting, but I am to understand his son was the seller. Even in JB bulk group it was kind of funky, here is a photo of one I sent...
