Re: eBay Managed Payments Restriction

My guess is that some buyers are speculating on metals market prices.
If it goes South, they want a refund.
Ebay wants PayPal to be on the hook.
Just a guess.

Re: 1896-S VAM-4

I would rule out VAM-1 as it is not a near date.
VAM-10 appears to have a date that is slightly nearer than mine.
I don't see any of the markers around the ear on VAM-10.

1896-S VAM-4

I got this coin at a local auction and believe it to be a VAM-4. OB.jpg Re.jpg IMGP7008.JPG IMGP7006.JPG However, I'm a little confused about the VAM page description. “One might be inclined to call this worn coin VAM-2, based on the position of the 1 in the date. However, the center ellipse of the ...

Not shipping coins, but I've had some of my first class letters take over 2 weeks.

Re: I won a Gold PCGS Set Registry award!

It pleases me to learn how diverse and accomplished our members are. Every shared achievement is motivation for me to do more.
My left handed pencil collection may not be worth sharing, but I very much enjoy reading about other's successes.
Well done Dennis. Thank you for sharing.

Re: Guess the grade

Serious congratulations John. To an outsider, guessing how others have graded a coin, might seem trivial and unimportant. Yet it involves ever changing standards of the industry (I recall when Leroy publicly stated that it was not a worthwhile pursuit to differentiate between an MS 64 ans an MS 65.)...

It's all about perspective.
Frankly I was pleased to learn that I have $2.3 million in a Nigerian bank.
As a bonus, I've also found that I am quite desirable among eligible young Asian women.
