Re: PCGS just graded an 1878-S VAM 58 SP65!

Prior to the announcement, Coin World contacted me about this piece. Their article including my comments is linked here https://www.coinworld.com/news/us-coins/2018/08/1878-s-morgan-dollar-may-be-presentation-piece.html Your thoughts about this coin are the same as mine. It is clearly a specially h...

Re: June 2018 VSS/PCGS Bulk Submission

I have a tracking number from PCGS. They'll probably be at my PO Thursday or Friday. Looks like the likely winner is colwillys.

Re: PCGS just graded an 1878-S VAM 58 SP65!

More questions: What's the marker that shows the VAM 26 EDS being earlier than VAM 60? What's the marker that shows there being a VAM 26 remarriage, and does it show up in lower grades typical of the 78-S B1s? Are there enough high grade coins to ascertain the relative population of the two VAM 26 r...

Interesting. I'll add this info to the PCGS thread in the morning. And, yes, do a presentation for VAM Thing XVI!

Re: PCGS just graded an 1878-S VAM 58 SP65!

Hi All, This is a Special Vam 58 & it has the Rev of the Vam 58 & 56. This is the second Vam 58 BU coin but Don is wrong, it’s not one of the presentation pieces. The Vam 60 is the Presentation Piece that was minted infront of the dignitaries in The afternoon of April 17th 1878. But the Vam 60 wasn...

The old VAMWorld wiki has been locked. No further editing will be possible there. I hope to have the new one up and running by August 15.

Re: Which 1892-S is this?

I agree that the slant of the date is pretty marginal and might or might not be listable. The break on the star, especially, given that a duplicate has been found, seems listable. Comparing with 50 Heritage pictures is the start of what could be a valuable exercise. 92-S is seldom sent to Leroy in g...

Re: test chickens.

Cool as these photos are, I'm trying to use this forum to track problems with and wishes for the discussion board, not a test sandbox. I suppose I could make a testing forum if there is really a need for one.

I'm not referring to messages or posts. I'm referring specifically to private Pages, similar to the VAM pages, that people made for their own use.

Re: A nice gift!.. 1st edition?

If the Newcomb book is a "deluxe" leather one, that's extra nice. The Breen book needs to be referenced in light of Breen's propensity for passing the boundaries of sound research practices, but is still interesting.

Nice. Looks like you picked up the Newcomb large cent book. Is that edition still hand-written?

Re: Attribution pages

Wiki is a general term referring to a user-built online body of knowledge. The old VAMworld had a wiki and discussion board.

The wiki will, in fact, look like Wikipedia, but will not be part of it.

Personal/Private VAMWorld Pages

As I migrate the old VW pages to the new Wiki, I am simply taking everything that's currently on the old VW and moving it. I'm aware that there are several users that have test pages, private pages, sandboxes, group collaborations, and what not currently stored on VW. If there are pages of yours tha...

Re: 1878 VAM 14.11

Welcome to VAMWorld. We like to keep discussion of pricing off the discussion board. There is a forum "What's it Worth?" that I created for threads like this. I'm moving this topic there.
