Re: 8 Tail Feather Reverse Images

Thanks for the images. I am trying to focus in on the little feathers that are near the wing base and the legs, where the famous "comma" feather is. I am finding that these feathers evolved differently in the VAMS and it helps to at least pin down which stage of reverse die was being used. There is...

Re: USPS PCGS lost package

The USPS is apparently taking on new responsibilities and delivery of your mail is no longer a priority. https://thefederalist.com/2021/04/21/the-u-s-postal-service-is-monitoring-americans-social-media-activity/ Just deliver the mail. After 5 years I quit, that way I could get all my retirement mon...

Re: 2021 Morgans S and D MMs

How realistic to the original do they look? We'll know for sure in October, but my impression is that the design will be well executed, but blurry compared with what we're used to (so I guess the 21-S will be most realistic :lol: ). The luster will also not be what we'd normally expect. Thanks mess...

ANACS graded the coin MS64. The owner might bring it by at the ANA show for photos.
Can anyone explain the 64 grade? I know it is futile to grade from a photo only.

Hi blh74, the clash marks look a lot better with coin in hand. Just can't get the lighting right for the perfect photo. :D
Your photos are fine. Mine could be an earlier die state.

I am thinking about having a tee shirt made for her to make it official. Then when her friends ask her what a VAMweenie is she can pass along some interest!
Might I recommend dialing that back to an 1881o.com t-shirt?
More better.

If it is cleaned it better be really desirable to have any value.

Hi blh74, thanks for your feedback. The seller gave me 20% back off the original price as the description didn't say coin had been cleaned.
Glad to hear that.
