Re: Legal or Not?

I just ordered a copy from Wizzard and am embarrassed I waited so long.
I'm sure I'll have some more questions, but my brain is a little fuzzy as I didn't go to bed last night and still have a few hours work ahead of me.
Thanks All.

Re: Struck Thru Grease?

Beautiful coin and great photo.
For research purposes, it would be hard to find a better example.

Re: Legal or Not?

I like rabbit holes, they offer much. And I have always said that VAMmers are the smartest people I have ever met. So let's share our views. Yes there is a problem with Chinese fakes, but that has nothing to do with legality, it is a problem of enforcement. The law is clear. And the Liberty Dollar a...

Re: Current Vam prices

I recently purchased a VAM that was of low population. It is neither interesting nor rare I2 R6. The condition was better than the other two in the SSDC registry. Yet someone wanted it almost as badly as I did and made me pay dearly for it (several times PCGS or NGC values for an unattributed coin.)...

Re: O/T Investing in Bullion ie: Gold/Silver etc

It's 7AM local time and I still haven't been to bed. Too many fun things to do I guess. I support the hard assets approach to investing. But I don't sell very often, so I guess I am a hoarder. My military training was geared to prepare for the worst. I'm doing it. I know there is a big premium on go...

Re: Struck Thru Grease?

Not everyone will recall, but Rob broached this subject back in Version 1.0 I would wonder if the dark streak isn't oxidation or a counting mark. To my thinking, the grease on a die leaves a spot on the coin. As visible here in the neck/wing gap. 7.JPG And with successive strikes, some of the grease...

Isn't that the essence of learning?

I agree LDMG, and I have spent some time learning about the law.
It has turned my hair white.
But when it comes to expressing my views, especially concerning our currency, I sometimes get in trouble.

Re: Legal or Not?

I don't doubt that your Lawyer's information is correct, but it seems inconsistent with the history of the Norfed coins. What am I missing. Norfed.jpg In May 2009, Von NotHaus was charged with federal crimes in connection to the production of Liberty Dollars. On March 18, 2011, he was found guilty o...

Re: 1904-O VAM-1B1 or VAM-5A?

Don't pay the ransom, I've escaped! My delay in response was in part because I wanted to get this right. I've made a couple of rookie mistakes in attribution lately because of a cloudy brain. I have three VAM 1B1 examples in MS condition. And upon close examination I would not conclude that any of t...

Hawkeye, I'm not sure I understand.
Can you please state which law has been broken.
I am not an attorney, but would like to learn more about our legal system.

Re: OT: Leroy, Marilyn and a burl bowl - a tribute to multiple beautiful lives

I can appreciate the warmth of a gift made of wood. As I assumed the role of taking care of aging parents I had the opportunity to recover a large broken limb from their maple tree. Cut stacked and aged, it proved useful. A few years later when it was painfully apparent that this would be our last C...

Re: Meet your new Official Attributors

I have no doubt that the transition will go smoothly.
The process is in very competent hands.
I hope that Leroy views this episode as one more accomplishment made possible only through his efforts and coordination.
