1878 NGCMS63DPL 8 TF VAM 23

I was looking through some my Morgans and saw this 1878 NGCMS63DPL 8 TF vam 23, that I was lucky enough to have spotted and won, a LONG time ago. I had posted it maybe four or five years ago and since I haven't found any nice vams, for a long time, I thought I would 'relive the excitement' and post ...

Re: OFF TRACK [1916 PROOF BUFALO NICKEL]

Brian, is that you and your new VamWorld ID? How have you been? Yes Wayne had told me the same thing, about toning, on proofs. When I saw that 1915 proof above and the reverse, I had to have it. The same reasoning, with my proof 1913 T-1 PCGSPR66 below, regardless of the circumstances or cause, I ju...

Re: OFF TRACK [1916 PROOF BUFALO NICKEL]

I also like the buffalo and Indian on the buffalo nickel Dr Keil, so much so, I had bought a 1901 ten dollar buffalo note and a crisp unc 1899 five dollar chief one papa notes below. Back in the early 60's I spent so time at the Ellsworth AFB, near Rapid City South Dakota and I was able to see Mt Ru...

Re: OFF TRACK [1916 PROOF BUFALO NICKEL]

A BIG THNK YOU to everyone. It has been so long since I saw and bought a nice coin I was starting to think that was it. Here you go, a good friend enlighten me, on what that gold shield, on these PCGS slabs meant, TRUEVIEW. Not surprising, I had no idea. So I opened the link, that he sent me and typ...

OFF TRACK [1916 PROOF BUFALO NICKEL]

I haven't bought, won or posted any nice vams for a LONG time. However I did see and win this beautiful 1916 PROOF buffalo nickel, housed in a PCGSPR67 slab and I just received it today. I have nice examples of most of the other proof buffalo nickels. The 1916 proof is the lowest minted proof buffal...

This is an interesting holder. The company was being investigated for defrauding customers. In 1990 they filed for bankruptcy. I bought it off EBAY for $50.00. A nice 1881 S with original toning. I am having trouble with posting the pic.

Re: 1923 VAM 1F TOP 50

Thank you Tom,
Would you say, by my pictures above, that mine is a vam 1F and not the
1923-P VAM-1F2 Chin Bar, Collar Clash Reverse or the
1923-P VAM- 1F3 Chin Bar, Collar Clash at ONE?
Are they more rare, because I saw they have a higher R factor?
Thanks again, Bert

Re: O T 1963 WASHINGTON QUARTER DDO

Thanks John and yes you are right, it was also attributed.
I have never been able to pick or cherry any of the DDO or DDR Washington quarters and I thought
the price was right and I bought it, along,with my two 1923 peace dollar vams.

1923 VAM 1F TOP 50

I had been looking for a nice 1923 Peace dollar vam 1F, for a long time
and saw a nice one for sale at a good price and bought it.
I couldn't see any collar clash of reeding on rim
I haven't found any good vams, for awhile, so I broke down and bought
a couple.
Enjoy, Bert

I was just looking at some of the other 1922 S vams and I hate to bring any more confusion into this attribution, but this might be another possibility, with 'a die chip below the R' vam. The vam page does not have any pictures, but says ( Small die chip on top edge below R in LIBERTY) It is the vam...

Re: 1922 S V1O

Brian had sent me pictures of this, of what I thought was a very good find and it has it listed as an R-7. It is not the number 10 or ten, it is the number 1 and the letter O vam. I have the vam 10, with the Rays on Top of Mountain Elite 30 I hope this clears up, this misunderstanding. Bert Here is ...
