Re: SSDC price guide.

THANK YOU Ash and SSDC! For all the constant consternation, the VAMview price guide has been sorely missed and a replacement desperately needed over the last several years. Different folks might take this different ways, but if all the SSDC accomplishes is keeping the registry up to date, keeping a ...

Re: Took a stroll through the grove for old times sake...

Sweet JK, congrats! Is the obverse crack as noticeable through the hair as it appeared in the listings? I think the crack should have a glob right before it reaches Anna's hair, which would make them late enough to be 1a3's...

Re: 2021 Morgan and Peace dollars

:lol: It would be funny if the mint made deliberate die differences to make them vammable. Clashed dies, repunched date and mintmarks, polishing the die until hilariousness ensues, etc. This would be... AWESOME! What we NEED to do is grow VAMming to the point where the mint releases an 1889-P VAM-2...

Re: Took a stroll through the grove for old times sake...

Thanks Jon, good eyes!
That was a very interesting group. I wish I woulda got one of the later ones with only the partial filled "r", because the obverse break also seemed to advance quickly on those. Are either of yours that stage?

Re: New Member with a Possible New VAM - 1922-P Peace Dollar - Extra Olive Branch?

Definitely clashing. This is a very common clash on Peace dollars and also the one that gets more new Peace dollar members here than any other... this clash for Peace dollars and the "volcano" clash for Morgans. In short, it's not noteworthy, but you saw it so keep learning and looking! ;) I'm a Mor...

Re: OT: Upheaval in the card world

Bob, the graded market already tanked... BIGTIME... several years ago. This is the resurgence! Seriously, if you have any graded or nice rcs of any of the 80s-90s megastars it may be worth digging them out. Been selling crappy set rcs of guys like Rodgers, M. Trout and Steph Curry for $60, $80, $180...

Re: OT: Upheaval in the card world

Triggered also by a mega-boom in card values. 6ish years ago I started looking into cards again after a long break and, to my surprise, many of the top rookies from my youth (Griffey, Frank Thomas, Barry Sanders, etc.) were selling dirt cheap even in certified gem holders, so I started picking them ...
