Re: 1878-S Vam 26 EDS, Vam 60, Vam 57’s Vam 26 LDS Long Nocks B-1 Rev

There are 5 different die states for VAM 57??
Guess I'd better get mine out and shoot some pics. What do I need to look for?

A wow VAM 60 Long Nock sale

I was watching the Heritage online auction this afternoon and was amazed to see the PCGS XF40 VAM 60 Long Nock go for $5,760 including buyers fee. I knew those are tough, but wow! :o
And Heritage didn't even have it listed as an 1878-S VAM 60... the title said 1878 VAM 60.

Re: 1878-S Vam 26 EDS, Vam 60, Vam 57’s Vam 26 LDS Long Nocks B-1 Rev

This thread is pretty complex for me to follow, but it did make me get my VAM 26 and take some photos. The 'dot' next to the 2nd left star was easy to find (although I'd never noticed it before). But what is going on in front of Liberty's eyeball... and what's that lump below it? VAM 26 stars.jpg VA...

Re: Pre-ANA VAMWorld Migration Updates

Thanks.
I am having some really goofy issues with the site. If I'm on the page via the link, I can't get to the discussion board... all I get is a blank page. And I can't bookmark the page with a link to the attribution pages.

1878-P VAM 9 and 9A: which one is tougher?

The SSDC pops are much different – 66 non-details VAM 9s are registered vs. 24 VAM 9As – but is that because of TPG attribution practices or is it reality? I notice, by the way, that VAM 9 has an R rating of 7 and 9A has a rating of 6.

Please share your thoughts and experience.

Re: Searching for scribbles (1921-P)

There's something I forgot to mention... both the left and right obverse stars are at least doubled, with the left stars moreso than the right.

Re: Searching for scribbles (1921-P)

I had hoped, Mitch, that when we migrated to the new platform we might see a kinder, gentler side of you.
But alas, my hopes have been dashed. I'm confronted with the harsh reality that it was just a foolish fantasy.
Thanks buddy. :lol:

Searching for scribbles (1921-P)

Of the 9 new MS63 1921-Ps I recently received (all D2 reverses), this is the only one I can't identify. No cracks on either side is one reason, and the almost total absence of scribbles is another. But there are a few notable fragments of things, as seen in the photos below. I've looked through the ...

This is such a great new chapter in the history of Morgans, VAMs, and Longnocks!
