Re: Can't quite place this 1904-O vam, new vam perhaps?

Die cracks are indeed like fingerprints... for particular stages of particular die pairings, but not necessarily for particular VAMs. "Multiple die pairs may exist" comes into play here, but also remember that every one of those die pairs listed on the 21 crack guide also likely have stages with no ...

Congrats! Maybe Squirrel will let you drool on his PL VAM 4. Of course, knowing that you will, maybe he won't let you.
I'd be more than happy to, but another VAMmer now owns that one...

CONGRATS Dennis!!

Re: What would you do ?

Check? By mail? Emailed today? In the words of the great (meh) Aaron Rogers: R-E-L-A-X . Honestly, peeps aren't hanging on every move in a situation like this. If the check is in the mail it could be God knows where and, if that is the case, the buyer may decide "He'll know when he gets the check......

The text doesn't get better. 19mm coin according to them. And, no, there's not a VSS label on this You know you're someone when they start keyword spamming you, I guess.

Re: 2021 Morgans CC and O Privy Marks

Honestly not sure if these are worth getting wound up about... seems to me like any commem. gets hyped up at release, but after a few months they always get less expensive.

Re: 1900 p.... VAM-Misstrike- Error- What is it?

Most glues are translucent, so they appear to be silver because we can see what's under them. I (and many others) have been fooled a time or two by the "dang it, it's silver!" reaction.
It's glue (or something), my nuts are safe.
Soak it in acetone and poke it with a stick...

Dennis, you can add private sales of:
ANACs MS63 @ $500 and
PCGS MS65 @ $1k
to your database, if you wish.

Re: 1900 p.... VAM-Misstrike- Error- What is it?

Ok, the last pic looks like there is a difference in depth, but that is often an optical illusion. If it actually does have depth I'd say glue or some other gunky goo... Poke it with a stick. What ever this is it is on the coin, not in the coin. I'd bet my nuts on it.
