Re: Vampicker

I actually prefer the style of the ANACS holder. It allows the reading of the Year-Mint when rowed out and wish I could find similar holders loose for temporary use. Maybe the issue is the color, the yellow tone is not an assertive color, nor does it contrast BU. It does looks great on a dark, earth...

Re: Unicorns Are Real!

Articulate, informative, and intriguing. Exactly the type of article that brings interest and life into coin collecting. This is the affordable fun of the quest, the value is a nice by-product.

Great starter article to resurrect Vam-e... quarterly?

Simple test for chrome?

Picked up a 91-O 1A on Ebay, Listed as "1891-O AU Mirror like" for $55. It was not listed as a 1A. I assumed that it was polished but when I received the coin it looks too shiny,. The Face is smoother than the reverse and was probably a strong EF-45. It weighs 26.658 g, Mic's to 2.73 mm Is there a s...

1896 P Vam 4 or 4a?

Picked up a 1896 P Double Star Low date, no mistaking, uncirculated. Has the gouge on the cap identical to the images on the site, however it DOES NOT have the field gouges on the UN. The VAM listing says "leaf AND series of...", it's not "may", or "or". So what do we call it? 4, 4a, or 4-half-a? Th...

Stereo Microscope?

Any advise on buying a stereo microscope with camera? There seems to be allot of AmScope 3.5-90x or 180x Zoom Stereo Microscopes and different camera configurations (1.5, 3, 8 10, 14mp) that seem interesting. I wondered if anyone is using one and what they are using ....

Re: PCGS 2021 pops keep going up

The Pop numbers are "skewed?" I happened to get up early one day and on TV was infomercial for Morgan complete sets and Eagle sets, (act now only 400 available!), on something called CSNTV, ANACS graded. Or are the CSNTV offers not really ANACS?.

Raw vs Slab

In your opinions, how much more would you pay for a slabbed coin vs a raw, exact grade? (assuming a reputable slab, commons)
It takes work out if the coin is graded, but excitement as well. :?:

Since they are proofs, like the annual sets, will this allow for pre-order and quell the Chaos? Sure hope so...

Re: Yesteryear Vam Collecting/Investing

I believe that there is a true difference between the combination of Honor, Knowledge, Value, with Fun verses Cash. The discovery and additions to the market of VAM's not only gives more chances for completing a collection, but hopefully conserves Morgan and Peace Dollars, which is the basis of coll...

Saw a "D" on ebay stating that it had shipped from the mint and that the seller had received an actual tracking number... Any reliable sources get the same yet?
