Re: Change at PCGS?

Even though this thread is referring to PCGS graded, I'm tossing out this guys observation.... seems like prices have jumped significantly in the past few months for almost all coins I look at on ebay. Not only seeing more toners (artificial and natural), but also many polished up lower grade coins,...

Re: How Long Have You Collected our Beloved Morgan Dollars ???

I enjoy reading your messages on here regarding metals and the coin industry. My collection history wasn't Morgans, but Lincoln pennies back in the early sixties. Once a month a bag of pennies was picked up at the bank and gone through on the kitchen table, filling in the blanks in our penny books. ...

Re: Nice little upgrade for my 91o set

Most of my photos (anything smaller than full size Morgan) come from an old Tasco digital microscope that has 10x, 60x, and 120x options. The Morgans I photograph with full size photos are from a Celestron digital microscope that has 10x to 40x, and 150x options. I mounted the celestron on a homemad...

Nice little upgrade for my 91o set

Was able to pick up VAM 1C (G clash) in MS 62, previous top pop. in SSDC was AU 58. Easy to see the G clash in hand, hard to photograph with my setup.

Nice item for my 1891 o collection

Couldn't pass this one up, 91o in a sterling silver money clip. Would love to see hidden portion the back of this VAM, it's for sure an 8a with a little rotation as well. The obverse die cracks and denticle fill on the obverse by the M in UNUM point to it being 8a. Just how big the displacement by t...

Re: fun NGC holder error (1921-S)

I saw that on a 78 S Morgan in a holder.... doesn't the S$1 stand for silver dollar? Wouldn't the MM be listed right after the date?

Re: New to forum, quick question.

My memory might be fuzzy about it, but I think I remember a highly clashed 1888 s posted on VW years back. Thinking it was picked up off e-bay and if I remember correctly. it turned out to be counterfeit. This one struck me as similar. But.... old age and memory (occasional beer or two) I could be w...

Re: Hello VAMWORLD!

Welcome to the site.... the broken N and M of UNUM is found on 6 VAMs of 1878.. 1878-P VAM 31, 1878-P VAM-40, 1878-P VAM-110, 1878-P VAM-145, 1878-P VAM-162, and 1878-P VAM-200. Each of those VAMs will have another feature making it distinct from the other 5. Just a nudge in the right direction....
