1878 S VAM 36 B DRAGON SCALES

Thanks to this great website, I was able to learn about different vams and what
to look for many years ago and as a result I was lucky to find a couple.
Her is an example, my 1878 S PCGSMS64 vam 36 B.

Re: Show off some of your best vams!!

I see some GREAT finds here.
I saw this 1921 PCGSMS64 Peace dollar a long time ago and was very lucky to have
looked at the the first L, in DOLLAR and saw the ray through the bottom, for a VAM 3
and bought it right away.

Does anyone have an 1894 S vam 2

I was hoping to find someone, that has an 1894 S vam 2 Morgan. On the 1894 S vam 2 page, it only has a small picture of the S mint mark. I was hoping to see larger area or more of the reverse. I tried clicking and sending George Mallis, who discovered it, back in June 1965, but I could not send him ...

Re: Question on this 1894 S Morgan

Thank you Dennis and John, I had looked at the vam 2 page, but didn't see any mention of any other die makers. To bad the 1894 S vam 2 page doesn't have a larger picture, so we can see the top of the bow. I had thought that I had placed a high enough bid on it, to win it. Maybe someone on Vamworld h...

Question on this 1894 S Morgan

I saw an 1894 S PCGSMS64 yesterday and bid big bucks on it, but didn't win it, because I was outbid. The main reason I wanted it and placed my bid, was because I saw, what looked like a 'tail bar' die gouge, on the reverse. I think that is the right description, because I remember that die gouge , r...

Re: 1934 D VAM 3a

I had to wait and get on my old PC, where I had my pictures saved of what I had labeled as a 3A.
It has a filled D mint mark and the doubled rays.
Looking at the vam 3 and 3A, I'm questioning if mine is a vam 3 or vam 3A.
I hope these pictures help you with yours DarksideVAM.

Thank you Gary and Windycity, is your name Pat? I was and am hooked on finding nice vams over the years, but for some reason, I haven't found any for a LONG time. I was lucky enough, to have met Ron Pope, a long time ago at a local coin shop and through Ron, is how I met Brian Raines. Anyway Ron kne...

Thank you Dennis and Keilg1, which I thought I had all of the names saved, but I couldn't find yours, sorry! I had been looking for a nice 1920 S, which seems like, some S mint marked buffalo's have smooth or soft details. When I saw the hair details, just above the braid and the strong details, in ...

OT 1920 S BUFFALO NICKEL NGCMS65

Enjoy, Bert

OT MY NICEST MORGAN SILVER DOLLAR

I had posted my 1892 PCGSPR65CAM awhile back. Since I haven't seen or bought any good vams, for a LONG time, I had my PROOF CAMEO 1892 Morgan out looking at it and remembering how excited I was and still am, on owning it. It is not a vam, but I think one beautiful Morgan silver dollar. Enjoy, Bert

I had bought this 1878 CC, from a late night coin sales TV show, from SIMMS or Mount Vernon a LONG time ago, that was advertised as unc.
