DMPL 84o... v23a OR a new v10A ??

Hey guys, came across this one and bought it for just under bid thinking it was a good deal for the premium a v10 would bring on top. I just check for the star-point gouge on 84o's to "fingerprint confirm" a v10 generally.. Got back to the room and noticed the clashing and thought "wow, I have a soo...

Re: Woop woop... Picked my first ScarFace today!

Congrats Chris! VAMS are on fire again!! You got that right Ash. I go to enough shows (from a non-tabled perspective, typically) + shops that one constant has been felt over the last 6-8 months and it keeps getting stronger.. General interest in VAMs is heating up. And I'm not just talking cherrypi...

Woop woop... Picked my first ScarFace today!

Ok, so, it's the H-1 and not a "true" Scar but it's my first, my new baby until I give her up for adoption and foster another :lol: I've heard the stories of H-9's & 10's being cherried but baby steps I suppose. Still happy to finally find one, if only the EDS! :o :mrgreen: 20190412_182115.jpg 20190...

Re: O/T... Dabbling in Trade's... FS-803??

Time is the real issue here. You really don't need to own the coins. The chapter for the Silver Dollar Encyclopedia that I wrote on key date diagnostics featured a bunch of coins I don't own, notably the four 1895 proof marriages. Most dealers are very good at pulling material to show you when you ...

So it doesn't look like there's a 6th edition of Volume 2 of the CPG out yet. Might want to double check your numbers.
And no, there's not a good variety reference for trade dollars.
Oops, FS-801 & 803.. Darn 38-D/S Buff's. Good catch, as always. At least I got the title right :lol:

Re: A nice little score...

Awesome 11. You have me beat hands down especially if it was a cherry. I've never encountered a slabbed 00o non label attributed o/cc. Its not for a lack of trying, I flip them and look as a matter of habit. In fact, I remeber thinking a while ago "why do I keep looking"

Re: 1901 Proof Vam 4

I know of no proof Morgan date for which the VAM number actually matters. Even for the 8TF, where the two VAMs are well-known, the VAM number is probably one of the last things that a buyer of a proof Morgan would consider. That said, owning a proof Morgan is on my to-do list. Looks like you have a...

O/T... Dabbling in Trade's... FS-803??

So, I was offered a couple of AU58 Trades that I couldn't refuse. One is a 74s semi-PL and this 78s is full PL. AND I think it might be the DDR FS-503. Not the big 501 obviously but could be the 503 methinks. I can't find any PUP comps for 503 though while 501 pics are easy to find. So, just wanted ...

I also remember one time I saw this VAM online and sent the seller an offer of $50 (it was a raw, cleaned common date AU coin...). He said “SURE!”, then after the transaction insisted on refunding me $10 because he realized the coin was cleaned. I said “it’s fine, I knew it was cleaned when I made ...

Nice little hit Dennis. I have yet to really delve into the 78 7tf's. Not even sure which are the best or what their PUPs are. I typically just pass by even looking at them most of the time.

Nice little cheery there! Well played.... ;) The strategy hasn't failed me yet. The trick is to really suppress your excitement and I mean everything. No shaking, excessive talking, not even a twitch in your eye. You cant be "too casual" either. You're already louping coins which typically raises s...
