Re: USPS Shipping What a Joke

I think it is referred to as quasi-business. Very complicated.

Re: New Vam

The funny thing is that I had the ANACS coin for about 3 years and could not attribute it. Then over a year ago in one of the PCGS bulk submissions thru Messydesk the PCGS coin was sent back with a letter from Messydesk suggesting I send it to LVA with his obvservations. I never even thought to comp...

I must thank you for the, new to me, method on zooming in on coins. It works on anything!

Re: 1896p morgan struck thur string

Like Messydesk said, it is unique. A lot of searching for previously sold "strike through" coins may help you.

Re: 1889 VAM 7B/VAM 60

I have one of each. They sure look the same to me. I now believe I have two 7B vams.

I have to agree with closing the office and deliveries on Saturday. I bet that would save a lot of money.

Re: Suggestion - Would a standard reference grid make attribution easier?

On one of my coins sent to LVA, had a collar clash. I mentioned the slanted date also. Leroy made it two Vams. One with and one without the collar clash. 1902 P VAM 29 and 29A. I don`t understand why this has to be so technical.

Re: 78-S -- new VAM-51 die 2

I feel VAMs are going to be somewhat absurd if new die combo's cease to become new VAMs. Obviously it's Leroy's party, and he can do as he pleases, but I can't help but feel that this VAM-11.2 trend is muddying the waters (since it's supremely arbitrary and can go either way and often does). Not to...

Re: sold

I have had one for about 25 years. It looks just like yours in condition. It is raw. May I ask how much yours sold for?

Re: Found another 1893-O VAM-6 privately-made, post your 1893-O/1894-O PMs

To me, the history alone of these who-dunnit CC's should give them more general collector interest than most VAMs. VAMs are the niche - these are just plain US history with a side of criminal intrigue in the form of a coin. Trying to explain VAMs to people makes us sound like bird watchers. These C...

Re: 1896p morgan struck thur string

There are a lot of coins that are struck through many objects. Every year and mint has them. If you study it closely you will see it. More of the fun in collecting coins.
