1881-O Update for August

I neglected to post that the July and August updates for the 1881-O web site are there, but there hasn't been a lot happening. I think I was in a funk waiting on this site to come through the transition, and I have a lot of cleanup work to do that will go on through September. http://www.1881o.com/2...

Re: 1881-O Update for June

I was not aware when I started all this of the difficulty we put on LVA with the single coin submission and I have the greatest admiration for what he accomplishes based on his experience and knowledge. I limited my focus to just one date/mint so I could focus and learn, but I think that approach ha...

1881-O Update for June

I think it is a permanent learning curve. VAMing is open ended and thinking you understand everything is a mind numbing experience. Obviously I am focused very narrowly and I still struggle with many things.

Re: coin collecting app

I am also gun shy about data loss and for that reason I find Excel very easy. I tried the PCGS site and it works fine and has the advantage of updating prices. But in the case of VAMs they do not track prices and if I have to do them manually I want to stick with Excel. Then there is the exposure of...

Re: coin collecting app

Over the years purchased and tried every available program for my PC. After all those tries I finally decided to try my own using MS Access. This worked but was a pain to maintain. So I have come around to using Excel and I think it is the best answer since it is easily customizable to your needs. I...

1881-O Update for June

http://www.1881o.com/2018-06.html Well I am back in the saddle so to speak and starting to catch up. I just posted the update above and think this is a good one. I finished up (or took it as far as my knowledge can go) the look at the VAM sequence for the 20, 1J, 1H, 40 can go. But along the way I f...
