Re: LVA

Here's a Coin World podcast from late last year interviewing the "MAN" himself.
The interview starts at 31:10 if you don't want to listen to the interviewers for a half hour. It was worth the 30 minutes listening to him.

Re: Pattern or regular issue Morgan dollar? Collector wants to know.

I wonder if Superintendent responded. It sounds like it is referring to a pattern piece that is shown in the book Comprehensive Catalogue & Encyclopedia of U.S. Morgan and Peace Silver Dollars (1977 edition) on page 49, figure 5. It resembles what is described in the letter. Thanks for the interesti...

Re: VAMView?

Years ago in VW 1.0 someone (I can't remember name) developed a Google Doc for anyone to input their VAM data. It has all the major lists Top 100, Hot 50, WOW, etc...… This is where you can input your VAM sales or buys. This is NOT for cherry picking prices. It takes a few minutes to figure it out b...

Re: SSDC Awards page

Congrats Alan! You deserve it.

You can watch many of the earlier VAM Thing awards videos here : https://archive.org/search.php?query=ssdc%20awards

Since many of us are sheltered in, you can watch hours of these. I really like the 4th VAM Thing video for it has Mr. VanAllen.
Enjoy.

Re: 1883 O VAM 49A - Does it Exist?

I have a V49 but it is questionable. Not much to go on with no other markers. Thanks for responding blh74. Is it attributed or is self-attributed? I show the first plate photos for 49 and 49A in 2004 and only of reverse. If you have something that matches the plates from 2004 for 49 or 49A or if yo...

1883 O VAM 49A - Does it Exist?

I have been searching years for this one (1883 O VAM 49A)but not much information is given for this one on its page. It is discovered by Mr. LVA and the plate photos only show mintmark and clashed reverse M above D in God. There is only one in the SSDC registry as a SEGS 50 discovery coin but no pho...

Re: SSDC Admin Request

Thanks Mitch!
What is interesting about the crack is that it starts out as kind of a ovaloid coming from the ribbon area then turns into a crack going over to the mintmark. I don't think I have seen one like that before. Mitch's pic shows that somewhat.

Looks like it took a post-Mint hit. Other coins do not seem to have but a normal O.
Yes, it does have a post-mint hit on the mintmark. You have amazing eyes to see that on that image. :)
