Re: NNP Research for Morgan and Peace dollar collectors

I've added a "Newman Numismatic Portal Portal" (NNP Resources) on the wiki under the "Other Links" section with the links provided by Roger at the top of the thread.

Re: VamWorld in E-Bay Listing

Just a reminder that this was an active auction at the time this was being posted here, and while I seriously doubt doing so influenced the outcome of the auction, the policy here is to only post active auctions on the BST board. Regarding the use of VAMWorld in the auction in the form of screenshot...

Let me look thru my 1879-S, 1880-S, 1881-S and 1921 (s) - I am sure we can get you there!
Don't "look through them" Brent, that's JB's job! :lol:
Anyone have a bag or two of mixed MM 21's laying around?
You though PCGS bulk turnaround was slow? Send me a bag full of 21s and see what happens.

Re: 2019 VSS/PCGS Bulk Submission #5 Open

Crossovers can't go in a bulk submission, but I can prepare a crossover submission for you and attribute them when they come back. Costs for the crossovers will be what they usually are. If anyone else wants to do any crossovers, I can bundle them to spread out the PCGS-related shipping fees.

VSS Slight Pricing Changes for 2020

The last time I updated my submission form was in 2009, so I figured it was time to take a closer look at the shipping fees, since they've changed a lot in 10 years. I decided to restructure them to include a $5 handling fee for all orders, but reduce the per-coin return shipping to 50c per coin. Sm...

20000 in 2020?

A couple days ago, I attributed and stickered coin #17876 in my database. I had 1800 coins cross my desk in 2019, which means it's not unreasonable for me to hit 20000 by the end of 2020. I had over 2200 in 2017, so the number I need has been hit before. Wish me luck!

Re: 1884 o / cc

If that is the actual 84-O VAM 10 discovery coin (matches the exact coin pictured in the VAM book) with an original letter, I would actually consider buying it, despite Breen's proclivities. The letter has his signature bombast ("I unhesitatingly declare") along with some of his signature bad inform...

Re: difference between die scratch and die gouge?

I believe cat owners would have an interesting perspective on when a scratch becomes a gouge.

Re: PCGS grades are back with a little extra

It's nice that they let you know, but it would have been nicer if they called you when they made that determination.

Re: A cherry in my "stuff" box

Good that a bunch came off. I'm sure it doesn't look as bad without lots of magnification. My next steps would be going after more of it with a rose thorn under a stereoscope.

That engraving is something you'd need to bring to FUN to pass around after VAM Thing if you were going.

Re: Opinion 1922-p B-1 Rev. Grease Filled?

Yeah, looks like a strike-thru. Hey JB, una pregunta... While this one does appear to be more strike-thru-ish with a more thin blob of grease style. I see perifiral weakness like this on so many Peace dollars, especially 22/23.. Is that edge grease too? I used to think so, especially the lower left...

And here I thought I was the one that would be on JBs naughty list :lol: 😎
He made my nice list by having all the coins sorted by date and VAM. Had they all been unattributed 21s, 80-Ss or 81-Ss, he'd be on my naughty list and not posting results until probably next summer.

Yes, it's VAM 5. Engraved feathers and doubled nostril are the key pick-ups for that one.
