Re: 1878 7/8TF VAM 38. PCGS MS65

VV 2015 had it in at $2300 retail and current prices on e bay & auction sites are very strong. prices have remained about the same ...

Re: 1878s Top 30 Rarity List

Sure sounds as if a great idea to de list if non known, and add if found Already to many vams and confusing, not to mention the varied Die states within some, making it much more challenging to value some. Way to complicated for newbies of which i fear lose interest vary fast,not to return Some memb...

Re: 1878s Top 30 Rarity List

Any year that has this many vams is overwhelming to attribute and yes could be much
more user friendly if broken to TOP 30 or etc Very daunting to try attrib these and mostly
i give up and have pros do it for a few bucks

WAY to many vams overall and not enough time or Patience for sure
