Re: 1900 0/cc

For me personally, id still pick it up due to its collectability, and it might even qualify as a true lowball grade...

Re: On an 1878-P vam-210?

Hmm, it could be an earlier 200s vam, but that would push the reverse to a C1 reverse, but it doesn't look like one for the diagnostic pup at the eagles feather area. Unless there is some strange crossovers of some C2 reverses married to some of the earlier vams?

On an 1878-P vam-210?

Now this one may or not be a head scratcher. I just picked up this one for more vam experiencing, not to mention it is a first year, so I am wondering if it is an eds of one of the vam 210s? Or is this another vam altogether? It most likely is not vam-215, so it begs the question, where are vams 211...

Re: 2021 Morgan and Peace dollars

:lol: It would be funny if the mint made deliberate die differences to make them vammable. Clashed dies, repunched date and mintmarks, polishing the die until hilariousness ensues, etc.

Re: An insane 1882-O Vam-17B wow vam.

Yeah thanks guys, I am learning much here. I also have the 1888-O hot lips in a G-6 condition, and a near miss 1889-P vam-19B1 (I know the 19B2 is the wow vam). I have a few of the other top listed ones. :)

Re: An insane 1882-O Vam-17B wow vam.

Thanks Vam-mysterio, actually, I didn't know fogie (Brent) was an expert till just now. Here I was thinking that most if not all of the top and major vams on these big lists were not very common to outright rare, that seldom were they common. That way we general collectors have a good understanding ...

Re: An insane 1882-O Vam-17B wow vam.

I must not have read that on the 17 page, even though it's a wow vam. It would be nice to see where the general consensus lies on how rare or common the particular special vams, like the wow vams, the top 100, hot 50, hit list 40, Kimpton 12, etc.

An insane 1882-O Vam-17B wow vam.

On the 1882-O vam-17 pages 3, it mentions the vam-17A as possibly being quite rare, so I wonder if the 17B (wow vam) is just as rare? I happened to cherrypick a couple of years ago just this very vam (definitely confirmed as a vam-17B) in a lustrous MS-63 or roughly. (Might be AU in grade perhaps) H...

Thanks again Latedatemorganguy, I do like how this site is put together, even though I had a learning curve for posting pics. As I run across more interesting vams, I can post further questions with pics as I can.

Re: On a 1902-O vam-17 pics for sure this time

Yeah, thanks, I just looked at the other pup's for the 17A and 17B for the fun of it, and determined it to be a 17B after all, since I clearly saw the die gouges near the neck point and the first left star. For the 17A, I couldn't see observable pitting around the A of dollar. I do wonder if this pa...

Re: On a 1902-O vam-17 pics finally?

Bingo, this is exactly what I was intending to do from the start.
I might need to post some more picts on this vam.
This has all 4 of the PUP'S for the straight vam-17, has a closed 9 in date, and has a prooflike reverse.

Re: 1902-O vam-17 retry

Ok, now looking around here some more, I was looking at the site FAQ page, that the image optimizer (coincommunity.com) is = to 'sizing photos for posting' (this site), but apparently does not work at the moment.

I was playing with this particular photo yesterday, and unknowingly shrunk it less than 2 mb, just found it out now from just playing around again. Im just curious if ...

Re: 1902-O vam-17 retry

When I mean image optimizer, its a function to shrinkwrap photos to get them to load onto a website like this; mine were too big, and that is the only thing I need I think, to successfully upload. I did have an earlier thread on this 1902-O vam-17 where I was chatting with a latedatemorganguy and he...
