There's this thing called the VAM book...
Thanks for the subtle reminder to dust her off JR. The book is rarely my first -or second, in most cases- go-to. But it should be. I'd bet I'm not the only one with that predilection, either 😔

Re: 80s... v7/94 obv... NOT Rev of either?... Leroy?

That's the original VAM 7. The revision eliminating VAM 36 has always been questionable at best in my opinion. If you send it in you'll likely end up with a VAM 94 attribution. Without a comprehensive and simultaneous study, this sort of thing will continue ad nauseam Thought that might be the case...

80s... v7/94 obv... NOT Rev of either?... Leroy?

Can someone confirm please? Gonna try to get a Leroy package out soon and just came across this girl. Add her or nah?... From what I'm seeing this obv is only known with the v7 & v94 pairing. Well this definitely ain't the s/s v7 with acid leaves and it the mm on this one looks set further to the le...

Jason, just fell from the tree, I swear!
I can attest to that. Got a great shot of Rob in the act. He had no clue I was shadowing him that day until he saw me in the bushes as he was coming out of the shop with it when I took the pic 🐿 😎

Re: Unsure how to proceed

As others have said, regarding the 89's odds are they're fakes unfortunately and they do have the "look" going by the LFCPs you posted. What do they weigh? Also, drop a real Morgan on a hard surface from about 6-8 inches. Then drop one of the 89's and repeat a few times. I bet you'll notice the high...

Very neat. I've always wanted to do some hunting but never have for whatever reason. I've heard the game animals here in California taste like crap anyway. Something about their diet.

Re: Guess what I found in the $30.00 box of Morgan's

How strangely fortuitous this find is too... what a coincidence that this is found the same time @fogie gets the Leroy Supplements and added the 7A/B/C work @78-sLongnock @messydesk and I (with an honorable mention to @dave700x) did in linking it to the 23A. Amazing.

Re: Guess what I found in the $30.00 box of Morgan's

what is this coin worth? A couple more zeroes than what he paid. (Note to nitpickers: This question is a good one in the context of this find, is not a cold "what's this worth" question, and the power of knowledge would be lost if the question had been posted in the WIW forum, so I'm allowing it.) ...
