Re: now the wait begins... **grades posted**

Hey Dennis, that wouldn't happen to be the VAM-7 you got from me a couple years ago, was it? If so, that's awesome cuz I sold that one because I found an AU53!! :lol:

Ant, you're trying too hard... all of those features that are making you say "WOW!!" we have a term for around here... DIE POOP. This is the micro-minutia, we only go as far as minutia.

Re: 1883-O VAM"38" with Dbl'd Stars/Berries/Letters/Partial E(?)/Broken Arrow... Confirmed w. 2nd Coin! Finally!

Ant, a couple things... First, look at the clash overlay pics again AND the VAM 101 clashed die section and absorb that info and it will fill you in on some of the basic capabilities and LIMITS of dies clashing. I kind of get the impression that die clashing isn't quite what you think it is. Imagine...

Hi Ant, are you starting to believe the folks that said things like "Welcome to the MADNESS " yet? :lol: My bits of advice are rather blunt... (1) I haven't seen much in the way of letter transfer in your pics. though I did see a pretty good reverse "M" (which is a clash of the designer's initial on...

WOW! Nice find John, YOU SUCK! Been quite a while since I've seen one of those beauties! Ever tell you about the one I found? I ran across some fuzzy pictures of an 89-O on eBay and thought it may have had some crumbly stars and, to give you an idea just how fuzzy the pics were, I also thought it mi...

Re: A Super CD list question..

Funny that you chose the "Trigger" as your example. A couple others have more right to tell this story than I do, but the 04-O VAM-28a was to Mark Kimpton what the Hotlips was to Leroy. It was what "triggered" him to do all of his fantastic work in the field of clashed dies! So, needless to say, it ...

Been a while, but got a couple picks!

I haven't had much time to spend here lately (though I do peek in regularly), let alone actually do any pickin', but I have found these two little nuts over the last month or so... Both are WOW!s, with the first being this 1880-P VAM-39a: rojopick820182.JPG rojopick820181.JPG And the second is an 18...

Thanks all! Lee... yer mean! :cry:
Burch, I'll have to look it over when it gets here... maybe I'll send it in for a "commercial grade" from you know where. Maybe JR added a note about it on the order summary, it would be easy for us to have missed something.

So this is the first order I've had in a while because, well, I just can't find any nice nuts! I have been liking cherrypicking PLs though and all three hopefuls in the order turned out (though no surprise DMPLs this time). Just thought that 22a was a 63 fer sure, but not to be. To get two in 62 hol...

Re: Back from NGC

Like you said back when it was first discovered, I think the 19a has to be out there somewhere and the 19b doesn't seem like a stretch either... eventually they will be found and I have a sneaking suspicion I know who will find them.
BTW, great batch!
