Re: 1878 VAM 131 proof dies

Excellent photos, great clear detail. That's what is needed for most VAMs.

Re: New VAM-e Sent - Michael Fey Buys LVA Assets

I also have a package that Leroy picked up at his PO in October.
Hope he has time to look at them.
So who is stepping up for this task?

Re: Help with 1880-P Overdate, Doubled Neck, Motto, Date & Reverse

The 'spikes' on the left of the 0 appear more like a bar in this pic and that is where the 9 crosses the 0. The VAMWorld overlay pic from the 1880-P page is here for comparison. Looks like something is going on.
