Re: Can we make this a guess the grade? (79-S Rev 78)

Nice looking coin, I had the hair lines between the Rt wing and the wreath as counting wheel damage. Have one bagged that looks familiar. In hand is a different look.

Re: Today I completed my 78-S long nock set

Nicely done, Clay. AU is a sweet grade and must show well. The 27A was also my last LN. I found a vf grade just before I found one attributed in xf.

Re: Wow unbelievable

I desire very little. But what I desire consumes me !! That is the VAMmer to a "T" That's all that needs to be said for this Variety. I got into VAMs with the 79R78s. I paid above on many for that time period. I had no regrets then or now. Always thought they were sleepers. as well as the Variety th...

Re: Ladies and gentlemen...

Guessing a small black plaque, with scribbling on it, is heading your way for something or whatever :) They will give them out to anyone. I know that for a fact. Collect a few coins and anyone can get one. We will expect a short speech after we learn all the details. Well earned !! I bet it is a gre...

Re: REDFIELD & PARAMOUNT HOLDERS?

Super rare for a Redfield " Red Holder " for an 1878 S coin. The black ones have sold for $115 lately to $250+ in good times. Finding one that isn't a V86 is also rare. Good story and very collectible. People pay more. Not sure what I'd pay for a red holder in my date. But there are enough of us wil...

Re: Wow unbelievable

Been watching that too. HOLY WOW. Heritage and eBay are selling very well. After seeing the huge spike the last 4 weeks I decided to sell mine off. Listed some before I saw this post. I've been more focused on old Mopars lately. eBay for the slabbed up to AU and MS coins going to Heritage. Most coin...

Re: 1878-S VAM6 DDO "RIB" with DDR and RPM...

What you have is a VAM X . That reverse was used on four VAMs with that being the earliest die state of the R in TRUST. VAMs 35, 93 , 19 and 74 all share this reverse, the B2w. Ill let you figure which one.

78CC V17 Obverse

Question for the 1878CC Experts. I picked up a 78CC coin in a PCGS MS63 holder. Get this, the holder is labeled 78S and was had for common 78S money. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1878-S-Morgan-Silver-Dollar-1-PCGS-MS63-Bright-White/142897568423?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 ...

Re: Purdy 21........-S

Always tough with a full strike.
I have a MS65* that took years to find in grade and (almost) full strike. Very nice for 21S

I was watching one on Heritage PCGS64 this week and forgot to bid.
