Re: Quick 1934-S darkside question - maching doubling or bad eyes or other?

Gary, just speaking from my own experience, Peace dollars to the untrained eye can show signs of "doubling" all over the place. I don't know your history with Peace dollars, but I had the same thoughts about "doubling" when I first started looking at them. I learned fast however.

1924-P VAM-8A Die State?

Picked this up for common money. Coin looks UNC but I suck at grading Peace dollars admittedly.

Question is, where would this coin fit in the break progression? EDS, MDS, LDS?

I have a similar hit, just not as dramatic or defined. I got drawn into it.

Re: BUYERS BEWARE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A well known chister by most. But along the way I did pick up a few coins in his slabs for cheap. As long as you understand that the coins in his holders should be treated as raw coins, you should be fine. Just don't get drawn in to the hype of the listings.

Re: A SWEET BUY Oh SH__

I was at a FUN show a while back. I stopped at a dealers table and asked to look at his raw 1902-O Morgans in 2x2 holders. He gave me a stack of like 6 coins. As I was going thru them, I noticed one was actually a 1903-O coin labeled 1902-O with a $50 price tag on it. I was stunned. I handed it back...

Re: 1878 S Trade Dollar

From my painful experience, I suggest you collect Trade Dollars with caution. I would not buy anything unless it is an a TPG holder. Even then you can get burned. There are many, many great fakes out there.

Time to Get Real FS at Auction

All the above coins that are not sold or on hold have gone to auction either at HA or GC. Coins I did not list here are included. No idea when they will list.

Re: 1904-O VAM-28A and VAM-32 observation

There was a VAM-e issued on this subject if you are interested and can find it.

It was dated March 19, 2011 Volume 8 Issue 7, entitled, "Where is the 1904-O Missing Link?"

It will provide more insight and background.

Re: 1904-O VAM-28A and VAM-32 observation

You have stumbled across one of the conundrums of the 1904-O series. The best explanation is this: An anomaly in the series involves the VAM-32. Both obverse and reverse dies were involved in clash episodes at some point in time. However, the rotation of the reverse clash marks in relation to the ob...

Re: Silver dollars escaped - hiding in columns

The first photo is from an 1888 building. The second is from a 1898 building.

That being said, I would rather find gold inside the columns than silver. Just saying.

Re: Silver dollars escaped - hiding in columns

Just a gee-whiz. I do a lot of work in old buildings and in 1895, the subject columns would have been cast iron. Think of a steel pipe, but cast iron. They are hollow, and things can get inside. In my case, I run into this quite often. If water gets inside the hollow column, and the temperature fall...

Re: 1902-O Toner FS

It is time to get real. I put these coins up FS in my first post in this thread. I based my pricing on the newly released and highly anticipated VAM Value Guide on the SSDC Registry site, discounted of course. I didn't expect to sell any at the originally posted prices, but thought I would try the V...
